The basic specifications for Argosy wheels are the same as for similar model Airstreams.

15 X 6
Six Lug on 5.5 centers
4.25 Center Bore
Zero Offset
2,600 pound minimum load carrying rating
Must be able to handle 65 psi inflation or greater.

Good luck with your search!

Kevin

No, the offset and center bore diameter are both problems. The bolt pattern of later models is different according to what I have been told. The weight rating of the wheels also is an unknown. Even with new wheels, I had some difficulty locating a wheel that I liked with an acceptable center bore size.

Your best bet would be to check with a tire store . They may have rims available off the shelf that will work for you. Happy Trails, Ed

I agree with Ed go to a tire dealer or trailer dealer (not necessarily Airstream) -- as properly matched wheels are critical.
