I need to buy new tries because my cheap Duros are splitting. I was thinking about upgrading my rims at the same time. I have factory white rims and I would like to change them out for something better...like chrome or something to improve the appearance. Does anyone know of a good choice for travel trailer rims?

The Sendel wheels, especially the T02, T03 and T04 sure seem to be popular with the RV companies:

.....I have been told that Tredit is one of the big suppliers of these wheels to the RV industry:

online stores like trailer tire and wheel.com offer lots of choices. What is your OE tire size? Now might be a great time to upgrade wheel sizes to something that offers more than the standard ST junk offerings.

factory wheels and tires meet tires requirements for TT and that is all. I am one of those you read about that had nothing but blow outs when I traveled. got old real fast. I went to my local tire dealer and asked for over sized tires and wheels. I do not regret the price one bit. at least I have not had a single blow since, I look at it as money saved not money spent.

Are the old four-bolt hubs replacable with a newer six-bolt hub? I'd sure like to get away from those dinosaurs.

Dexter can probably fix you up with a hub number. Give them a 1-800 number call for tech assistance.

I am not sure the size of the current tires. Since I am changing out the tires and rims, what is a good size to get?

Tires and wheels are matched to your trailers axle rating or actual weight on the tires plus a bit of reserve capacity. We have no idea what size you need I wouldn't guess what you need as it might be a poor recommendation.
