Hello everyone,

just found this forum after buying a Winnebago f17 and it seems like this place will be lots of help.

Right off the bat does anyone know if I can replace the wheels on the rig with any 8x6.5 bolt pattern rims with a 4.9+ center bore? Im having a hard time finding the original 9.50x16.5 tires and the ones I can find arent cheap

Your best bet might be to look at aluminum aftermarket rims.
Might be lower cost in the long run, lighter, and add some bling in the process.

Hey first f17 owner I have found. I have a 1970 model. I have alloys on mine that came with it. Would be good to share notes... I haven't figured out the heating system yet! Russ
