Alcoa Aluminum 22.5" wheel purchase/install in NJ

I'd like to install Alcoa Aluminum wheels on my 2010 Itasca Meridian. Does anyone know of a good dealer/installer in NJ?

Thanks.

Can't help you , but I can tell you that you'll love em. Soap and water and it looks like new.They have a protective coating and Alcoa says not to use anything but soap and water.

To my surprise, according to the Alcoa website dealer locator, there is NO dealer in NJ.

a member here, "justme13" had a set for sale. Suggest you send him a PM.

Yes, I was surprised at the lack of dealers listed on the Alcoa site.

Check with any of the commercial truck tire dealers in you area. Chances are they will have access to them and can fix you up.

I bought mine last year at a truck wrecking yard, cost was $150 each, then I had them polished as they are not the coated ones. Cost me $35 each for that. There is also a place here that sells refurbed ones.

I'm sure you've got this site but if your still looking. http://www.alcoa.com/alcoawheels/nor...or/default.asp

The distributor in Richmond, Va--Crw--has good prices. Recently purchased (4) 883677 (22.5 x 8.25 - 10 bolt)
for Mich 255 / 80R / 22.5's for $269 ea. These are polished on both sides but not Durabright.

Make sure your studs are long enough to accomadate the AL wheels. If you leave steel on the inside they probably will be all right, but I would check anyway, JMO.

Thanks for advice. My MH, when new, came with steel or Alcoa's so there shouldn't be a problem with threat
Length.

Do you have any suggestions on axle/bolt covers? I guess the plastic crome works alright.
Thanks again

On our rig the studs are so long that even with Alcoa's on the outside and steel on the inside none of Wheelmasters stud covers will fit. Looks like I could put Alcoa's on the inside too and still have too much length.

Do not run steel wheels backed up to Alluminum they will create electrolosis That will create many problems. Do it right and go all alluminum even if you have to put longer studs on.

I've check a lot of sites and it is a mixed bag but most say there is not a problem on duallies with steels on inside. In fact, many new rigs come with that combination. A plastic spacer should be used. Alcoa even sales a nut fastener for Aluminum to steel dually wheel. And I'm pretty sure the nut fasters
are steel.
