Actually, those wheel covers look pretty good. You could probably sell them for the price of the new aluminum wheels you're looking at.

I was thinking the same thing, I would leave wheel enough alone.

Jim.

It's easy.

The key is how much of the tire can you see "ABOVE" the top of the wheel.

About 1 1/2 to 2 inches of tire should show.

That's not the case in those photo's.

Take a look at other Airstreams. You will quickly see what I see.

The axles still look "iffy."

Check them out yourself.

Takes about 20 seconds to do so after you read that article.

Can you get replacement wheels that the existing wheel covers will work on?

Those hub caps will fit the current Airstream type steel wheel.

I like choice #1 - the hubcaps will fit ANY steel wheel of 2600# rating from any dealer that sells trailer rated tires and rims..

Hey Kneal-

You better go back into photoshop and give your AS a little lift before Andy looses it! And I like #4.
