Alcoa Wheels

Going to be in the Nappanee area in October. Anyone have a recommendation where I could purchase and have installed 6 Alcoa duabright wheels 22.5 X 8.25 for Ventana 4369?

We had our Canyon Star tires rotated and balanced (rotation required remounting due to the two steel inner dual wheels) by Glen Tire, 2576 E Market St, Nappanee, IN 46550, just down the road from the new service facility. They may also be able to get the aluminum wheels.

Note that if you currently have steel wheels you may have to change the lug nut studs for longer ones to accommodate the thicker aluminum wheels.

Your steel wheels are of value too. Maybe have them do the labor and balance for steel wheels?

Can I ask why you wouldn't order the wheels on your own and then go to a good tire shop and just have them switched out? That's probably what I would do. You may pay a lot more for the wheels through a shop because I've seen some hefty mark ups.

Yes the Ventana has Accuride aluminum wheels. The two on the drive wheel have started developing corrosion under the accushield coating. No, Accuride will no warrant. Talked to them personally and sent pics. Their response was I could just remove the coating. Iíve had Alcoa wheels before and they just have a gorgeous shine to them. Not sure what Iím going to do - replace the two drive wheels, wait, submit written warranty claim, etc. since Iíll be at the Newmar service center for svc, thought Iíd see what local shops might be available if I decide to replace, etc.

Thanks for all comments concerns
