Boles Aero has sad in the back yard since bought it in 2004, for want of an adequate tow vehicle. THis year we bought a 2001 Expedition and started to clean off the old girl.
I left the rims with our favorite local tire guy. We leave on vacation in six days.
Tire guy says he can't install the new tires on those rims- they need "tubes and flaps"
Never heard of 'flaps' - Tire guy says he can't get them.
The search begins, i can get white spoke trailer rims from tire guy but I think they will look ridiculous on the boles
I scoured craigslist for some six lug rims but this was not the week.
None f the online vendors will get them to me in time.
On a whim i pulled into a local tire place that caters to the farm community.
They have tubes and flaps- boxes and boxes of them.....
$100 for a whole set (four)
I assume Airstream used similar rims back then, has anyone else been down this road?
Did I make a good choice keeping the original rims?
