Alcoa 19.5 5 bolt rims

A chance for someone on the west coast. This popped up on the Facebook Travco page.

Wow, nice wheels!

After reading the ad I am now wondering... Are they putting the steel wheels back on? Surely they're not just going to sell the Alcoa wheels off the coach and leave it up on blocks. :(

If I had the cash and a way to get them I would have snapped them up but I have other things to put money towards on Nessie. I hope they have steel wheels to put back on. Even as a rental unit it deserves wheels.

had given those a kwik look but.... after looking for 19.5 rubber for the Travco's and finding their not as popular as before... Would like to go to 22.5 rims and rubber...as they can be made to almost any configuration... would rather put my buying into the 22.5's IMO

I would love other options but... there seems to be no wheels available in any size with the big 5 hole pattern.

Thanks- that was just with a quick clean & some hand polish. Now doing 'mechanically assisted' polishing- started with the one that was a rear inside wheel with tar on it...it's taking some time, but it's coming along
