You need 6x15 - 6 bolt on 5 1/2 zero offset. Got mine at Hubcap Annies if you have one in your area. They were Carlisle brand and have a 2650 lb. rating per wheel. White spoke - which I painted black.

Grandmaster,
You stated you want tires and then asked for wheel data. Ganglin gave you some of each. However I am going to ask that you clarify your q. Looking for tire data or wheel data or both?



BTW,
ON a slightly unrelated data.
Land Yacht is an option package or a trim level for Airstream

You have a;
Caravel
Globetrotter
Safari
Tradewind
Overlander
Ambassador
Sovereign

These model names corraspond to the length of the trailer. The above list is arranged from short on the top to long on the bottom.

Actually I only addressed the wheel issue. Only been around here since last July but learned quickly to avoid the tire issue - so I read what everyone else had to say - did some outside research and made my best decision on that topic.

I noted the Samba.com picture ref. I hope your not towing with a VW.

Those are 6x5 1/2 wheels. I still promote radials (because thats what Airstream says) instaead of bias. Be careful of the width size...its a close fit to the side wall. I like Tow Master.

Looks like an Overlander or Ambassador, probably an Overlander. Tire size would be ST225/75R15D, or 7.00R15LT, also load range D.

From your photo's, it would appear that your axles are "shot."
