Wheel DEAL!

Did a little shopping around . Iwas going to order a set of wheels from Rjays so I could make the April Atlanta Meet. Chili pointed out I had waited too long and we would be out of town the week they would arive.

Started checking the local places and found a place in Fayetville GA with the same rims as Rjays WITH tires for $149.00

Just called them the tires are Goodyear Marathon's. Other then a 40 mile trip down to this place it is saving me a lot of time and leg work. I don't have to got to Costco and get anything mounted (again saving a few bucks).

Part # 22575R15ARA This is a Aluminum rim rated 2540lb with load Goodyear radial load range D $149 plus shipping or tax if your local.
It is very simular to the Rims on New Airstreams except it does not have the decorative rivets.

Question Lug nuts versus lug bolts

59Toaster, do you know if these wheels will work with lug bolts?

I noticed that they have a tapered lug nut seat; does that mean I can't use my lug bolts?

Lug bolts

Do your lug bolts not have a tapered head?

Okk you have me.

I thought these coaches had Wheel studs? I was going to buy the correct Lug "nuts" to go with the wheel. They are about $1.00 each.

I have not seen Lug "Bolts" since I sold my 73 VW.

If my coach has Lug bolts I'll be drilling out threads and going to a wheel studs
