Well I just discovered this damage. We went to a campground in Missouri and had to travel a really difficult road for about 1.5 miles. Coming out of the campground I heard a large bang. Hard metal. Swore it was one of the leveling jacks. Drove 4.5 hrs back in the Tulsa. And this is what I discovered. We have a 2016 Forest River Georgetown 364TS. Tire size 235/80 R 22.5. Itís the back passenger Dooley. Itís a deep rim. I donít even know what I call this one when trying to look for it. Iím really pissed. We keep this rig inside and detailed like crazy. Can you guys help me out. Thank you so much

I feel your pain on that. You might want to try this: https://www.alcoawheels.com/alcoawhe...otor-coach.asp

They manufacture most of them and they have a dealer locator in the website.

I'm very glad that wasn't followed by a high speed blowout!

What a disappointment when you've taken such good care of your rig.

Sometimes we hear unfamiliar noises and stop to see what it is/was. Maybe we're just paranoid.

Could also be Accuride wheel. It will show the brand and model number on the wheel. Need that to order a new one.

My 2016 F53 has Taiwanese made rims, so there is another choice for you. Do you think that Ford went with the high bidder?

Look on the dish of the rim there will be a size embossed into the metal. Size is all that matters and the appearance will likely be very similar. To me a slight difference in the looks would be minor.

Well Kent,
I've repaired rims like that a few times and, all I can tell you about yours is, the time and effort to repair that, would very, very close to the cost of a replacement rim. As has been stated, you'll have to find out the make and model (part number) of that particular rim. I'm linking a pic of one of our alloy rears. It's an Accuride. It has a part number, size, weight rating and tire size stamped in it. I'm going to assume yours should have the same type of info, depending on just who the maker is/was. I don't know if you'll be able to zoom in close enough on our pic but, if you can, you'll see the detailed info stamped in the bottom section of that rim.

Thank you so much I agree totally with you that if theyíre slightly different I donít know how youíll see the difference. I knew the size was critical. Iíll look at the embossing on the rim I didnít even think about it. I discovered it last night and freaked out.

Iíll definitely be looking closer at the rim itself this morning. I have to admit I freaked out when I saw it.

Good morning everybody. So this rim has a stamp of Ford, a ton of numbers, and Taiwan. Finding a replacement is interesting. $429. Apparently itís the same rim on the front they just reverse it. So now Iím waiting for it to arrive so I can take it in, have the tire taken off, re-installed and re-balanced. Thank you for all your help but you guys are the best. Another education process.
