@Mona 56' Flying Cloud? I missed the news on the new addition. So you are busy expanding the herd after all. haha.
@Shelly Thanks for the Hubcap Mike reference, and lucky for me it is local to me. If VTS, and Inland RV can't source baby moons for the specific wheel size, worries me. I don't think it would be an issue with the 5 lug wheel though.
Ok, as for the wheels... There are various options, but not one solution to my wish for baby moons + beauty ring. According to Inland RV the 15", 6 lug wheels can only be fitted with the conical shaped hub caps. To fit the baby moons, I would have to go to a 5 lug wheel. I also called Vintage Trailer Supply, and the same answer occurs for their 15", 6 lug wheel, only cone shaped hub caps fit, and they have tried sourcing baby moon, to no avail.
There are various other decisions riding on these choices, ie. axle (torsion/spring, dropped/straight, 6 lug/5 lug). As much as I like to stay with a vintage look exterior, an alternative is to go with a modern forged aluminum wheel. I am concerned with all these variable changes that it all fits in the wheel well as measured.
