Wheel Simulators...

Hi Guys -

I'm having some difficulty finding wheel simultors for my '75 Argosy Moho. I bought a set several years ago and since then I've lost two off the front. The way they attached were kind of crappy, IMO, which is probably why I lost them.

Anyway, I forgot the size I need and just looked at the tire but it said 16 something. I really doubt that it's a 16 inch wheel.

Does anyone know the size for this unit and a place to get replacement simulators? Also, just in case the wheels have been changed does anyone know how to meaure it for simulators?

Cheers,
Allen

Got a set for my old 'C' class off of Ebay.
It was a 1976 and had 16.5" rims.
Get the S/S type, they last forever.

The wood treetment must have been a job!
Reminds me of a GMC from same era....thats a good thing.

Thanks klattu -

Yeah the wood was a big job. I didn't do it though, it was done by a TV show.

So you had a p-30 chasis for your '76? Is that right?

Cheers,
Allen

I'am not sure about the P-30...
It did have same hydra-boost brakes, but was more van than big truck.
And it stopped a whole lot better than my '89 345.

16.5" were very popular back then.
Not sure where jump up in size was made.
Now you could change to aluminum 19" rims.
Many places offer them already polished.

Cool..

thanks,

hopefully someone on here will be able to tell me how to check to make sure I get the right size. many places on E-bay say it's a 19.5 inch wheel and of course I'll have to buy the whole set (all 4) ugh.

can't afford the 19" aluminums. i kind of like the polished look of the stainless steel inserts a little better anyway.

cheers,
allen

I would look real close at tires again.
Has to be on there somewhere.

How many bolts in each wheel?
8? 10?

16.5...

Ok, so the tire actually says 16.5. So I guess that's the wheel size yes?

Anyone know where to purchase these? All I need are two front ones.

Cheers,
Allen

these are cool...

I was kind of looking for ones that i didn't have to bolt on but since the last one's flew off maybe these would be a better deal

cheers,
allen
