Replacement wheels

Hi. I'm ready to buy new wheels and tires for my 62 Globetrotter, which has the original wheels. Any replacement recommendation for new rims would be much appreciated.

Make sure that the new wheels are at least a 2600 pound rating.

Automotive wheels, don't meet that requirement.

we stayed with 15" and went with 235/75's. they are a bit wider and might not fit on an old axle - but do fit on our new axle from INLAND RV

I'm very happy with the price and quality of the 16" aluminum wheels (and new axles and disk brakes) that I bought from Inland RV. You might find a slightly lower price on the wheels elsewhere, but then you have to figure out how good they really are.

e-trailer.com has one of the biggest selection of trailer wheels I have found, and more than competitive prices.
