Anyone know a source for 13" 4 lug mags or chrome plated wheels?

Tom---If they are the same as Scamp, (4 on 4") that makes the wheels the same as Vega, Chevette, etc. Start scrounging your local wrecking yards. Larry

I've got a question, and this seems like a good place to ask, since most everyone here has added aftermarket rims.

I thought I had read somewhere that trailer rims were different? Like they were hub centered and not lug centered, or something like that

Also.... offset?

How or what are you all looking for that tells you that these (or any) aftermarket rims will be suitable? I mean, beyond that they are the diameter you want and the number of lugs you want? What happens if one runs the "wrong" rims (even if they do physically fit)?

Thanks,

Raya

I believe you need to know size (13, 14, or 15 inch), bolt pattern (like 4.5"), and with my Casita it's zero offset.
Here's a pretty good source for trailer wheels: http://www.ricks-tire.com/

To answer a couple of your questions from both actual towing exprience and working in a shop
that specialized in aftermarket wheels.
Hub or stud mounted wheels,, only difference is weather they may move a slight amount
up and down and a radial tire will remove most of that when moving, no matter what wheel
you have no your trailer now jack it up and spin it , will probably run out somewhat.
Offset,, may work your bearings a little harder if they are negative offset bet on my Boler they
won't fit with too much offset.
My wheel,tire combo is featured in this post and we just got back from 39 days and 19,000
km's with 0 problems.

Phil, what year is that Bigfoot? Looks like a 99 or 2000.

Don't buy the chrome plated steel. They will rust because the plating is too thin usually.
Causes me to steel wool them and keep waxed.
