Wheel replacement

I am looking to replace my wheels and they sell rims all over for vehicles.
I am told that there is a difference between trailer rims and vehicle rims?
If so what is the difference between these types.
This for my 25' International 2005. I am looking into a more vintage style rim.
My size is 15x6" which is very a common size, but not so comon for trailer only.

15 X 6, 6 lug is a very common wheel for trailers.

Remember though, that the steel wheels must have a rating of a minimum 2600 pounds, each.

That makes the huge difference between car wheels and RV wheels.

I just replaced my wheels and tires on my 05 28' Int. I found them at Trailer Tires and Wheels website. They are the series 4 15x6 rated at 2830lbs. I also got the Maxxis 8008 225/75/15, an E rated 10 ply tire. The wheels cost $85 each, however I was able to get them from Discount tire for the same price along with my tires. They fit just like the originals with the same offset and are made/imported by the same company that made the original wheels. (green baw or baum?).

I'm keeping the stock wheels and tires on it when its stored.
