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

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

I knew that, I was just testing you.

#1 looks good to me but then I'm biased. I have polished American style 5 spokes on mine to match the '57. They really suit the trailers well.

Sorry - none of them. Stay with the originals. Keep her true vintage.

#1 and especially #4 remind me of sink drains... or maybe minnow buckets for some reason

I vote for #2 or #3. Maybe my vote is leaning more towards #3

Good luck!

I had number one on my last three CCDs. They look sharp without being too over the top. My new 34' clasic has different wheels that make me miss the old ones!

Which Wheels Look Best on these Pics?

Definitely # 1. They really stand out!

I agree with Andy, the axles look iffy. If money is a problem do the axles and if you can afford new wheels, I like #1, and the vintage hubcaps.

I agree with prior posters, if you WANT aluminum wheels sell the hubcaps on e-bay. BTW aluminum rims will lose a bit more air than steel.

Whatever floats you boat or shines your Airstream.

My first choice (judging from your photos) would be the original style wheelcovers, but if I had to change to one of the alloy wheel styles I'd go with #3.

I was for #1 until I saw the originals, which are now my first choice.
