Looking for Aluminum Rims for 05 Dolphin W22

We've had our 05 Dolphin 5320 since new and decided to keep her a while. I would love to put some aluminum rims on in place of the covers. Workhorse shows the factory wheels as 22.5 x 6.75. Does anyone have a part # for a nice aluminum wheel set of 4 and when I do a search, should I be looking for this exact size or is there a range that the 235/80R22.5 Michelins will work on that will not have clearance issues? I really would like to find some wheels at a good price. Some used ones in excellent condition would be ok too. Thanks!

Wade

6.75s might be a little hard to find, but if you look in truck wrecking yards you may be able to find some 7.5s or 8.25s.

For a price savings, I would go to an RV-Truck Salvage Company like http://azrvinc.com/ OR RV Doctor George

Thanks for the tip. Where would I find the width range I can use? Once I have that I will know exactly what options I have unless you know for sure these will work.

My Fleetwood Providence uses the 7.5s. I suspect they would work for you.

I appreciate all the tips and am on the hunt for 4 viable wheels! Might add Sumo Springs with the swap to complete the suspension tweaks. I probably will add an internal TPMS and lose the tire stem version.
