Found tires...

First, thanks Argosy for the info on the split rims. The dealer I went to thought that some of them had been outlawed also, as to whether he could replace them or not. Luckily for me, mine are serviceable.

I now have new tires on my rims, of a Load Range C variety.

Advice to Ingrid and others on tires for split rims/with tubes. I did eventually find tires that would work along with inner tubes to go in them. It turns out that these can most easily be found at commercial tire places. There is one place in Wis. that I can think of though that might be good to check out. It's calle Fleet Farm. It is kind of like a Kmart/Home Depot/Farm store. I don't know for certain if them carry inner tubes and tires to go with, but you might try to find out.

One other thought, if you are thinking about just getting new rims/wheels, you might want to ask the seller if they could take one of the old rims to a dealer to find out what size and bolt patter the wheel is. I was thinking about possibly getting new rims, but I didn't have the time to wait to find them--plus for what we are going to use if for right now, it won't be moving a lot.

And yes, Ingrid, it is our first Airstream, and I just finished spending three hours polishing one side......

Later,
Rob
