1971 Dodge Superior Motorhome Rims

Looking to get rid of all 6 of the large 5 lugs split rims on this motorhome. Does anyone know where I can get standard, tubeless rims/wheels? Thank you

Thank you. I contacted them. Hoping for a good reply. Love this motorhome and would hate the rims to be its downfall

do you know what e bolt circle is? I think i have heard that some of the small cab over (Imports like Isuzu? and UD? )trucks might use them.
OR there are companys that Can Weld your centers into modern size/configuration wheels. Stockton wheel in stockton CA does this all the time. http://www.stocktonwheel.com/heavy_duty.html
I know many will poo poo my welding idea. but think for a min all steel wheels are Welded.
that is how they are made now.
