After last weekends episode of just plain being to heavy, I am moving forward with replacing our 6k axles with 7k alxes. However finding wheels other than the $$$$ ones from the rv dealer is becoming a chore.
I am looking for a good source for 16" wheels with a load cap. of at least 3500 lbs @80 or 100 psi
any guidance would be most apreciative.
I just cant see paying forest river thier exorbanate $$ for axles and wheels

It resides over on the texasboomers.org website. I just checked and can't get onto that site, so Don Allen may have it down for development/maintenance.

Are these 16 in wheels still 6 lug?

If so... Toyota, GM/Chevy trucks ust 6 lug wheels (my second spare was a Toyota wheel).

But be careful of the back spacing...

In my experience the Chevy wheels will not fit, the hub openings are too small because chevy wheels are "hub centric", meaning the center of the wheel fits tightly on the hub. My trailers have too large of a hub to use the Chevy wheels.

Chevy wheels will not fir a Toyota for the same reason, GM uses a smaller 4x4 front hub for some reason. ... Toyota wheels fit my 97 Prowler but the back spacing was wrong, the tire was too far in, too close to the spring & shock but it was the second spare and a "C" rated tire, just for limping into somewhere I could get help.
