Wheel & tire info for 1985 Sovereign 25'

We just purchased a 1985 Sovereign 25' in Indiana and we're in New Mexico. My relatives are going to go up from Kentucky to get it, probably next week. We bought it from a salvage place (insurance payout gives it a salvage title) so they don't know much about it. Can anyone tell me the wheel and tire information so the family can take along a couple spares? Bolt pattern wheel and tire size, and offset would be very helpful if possible.

Thanks,
Tubbs

Thanks so much

Hey, thanks a lot, I really appreciate it. Where did you find this info? Is it the same for all Airstreams or something?

Thanks again,
Tubbs

Not the same for all Airstreams, but pretty consistent with your model year. Some of the smaller vintage trailers had smaller wheels, and different tire sizes, and some of the yr2000+ 22ft and smaller trailers also had smaller wheels. I am slightly blurry on the details of this, though.
I've been digging for all sorts of information during my ownership of 2 Airstreams so far. Both of them needed substantial work to fit my expectations and needs. The current one more so than the first one. Both got new alloys, and the link I sent you shows the current ones on the 63 Overlander.

OK, thanks for all the info. This forum and it's members are proving very rapidly to be an invaluable source of information. Hopefully it won't be long before I'll be able to contribute myself. We look forward to meeting some of you in campgrounds and on the road.
