You mention dually's so I assume you are talking about a motorhome?
Unfortunately you are just about to find out, the parts availability for older trailers is not great but for motorhomes is non-existent.
For wheels, most folks go down to 16" rather than up to 17" wheels, basically because LT225/75R16 are about the bigeest tire that fits within the wheel well (I tried some LT235/85R16 and they touch the floor to the rear).
You really have no chance of getting at replacement banana wrap, take a look at what Ernie had to do to repair Peanuts wraps (http://www.airforums.com/forums/f310...on-148273.html
) - that or make our own from scratch (as Steve - Keyair is doing for his Classic) is your only option.
