Pimp my Pullbehind

I have owned my 73 Argosy for about 18 hours and I already want to style it out. I wonder what kind of bolt pattern do they have. Can I use chevy rims? I want to rdess it up with some aluminum mags.

Yes. I believe the normal 6 lug Chevy truck wheels work. BUT the stud length and width (smaller) might be an issue.

I run 8 lug Chevy steel wheels, but I cannot fit AL wheels due to the extra thickness. Also my studs are smaller and require 13/16" nut (standard RV size) instead of the normal 7/8". Not perfect, but it works.

There are specifically designed trailer AL wheels which should comply perfectly... But most lack the bling factor.

Make very sure you're good with the weight of your trailer and the load rating of the wheels.

The other issue you might want to keep in mind is that unless you just won the PowerBall, there will be many, many other things on the trailer which will require an investment.

You can trust me on that!
