Original Wheels for 3000RK

I have purchased a 2007 Montana 3000RK and I would like to know what are the OEM aluminum wheels and if they can still be purchased? Mine has steel wheels on it.
Were steel or aluminum wheels an option back then. I am trying to find out what is correct for this 5th wheel.
If the OEM wheels are not available, what are the weight ratings that I should be looking for on aftermarket wheels? My GVWR is 12,500.

Thanks for your help!

Just looked up that unit. Keystones specs say 10065 dry weight with a 4095 cargo capacity. That put your rigs GVWR at 14160lbs.

I am not certain, but I would bet it came with alum wheels.
Most likely not made anymore. (I cant get wheels for my 2011)
Look for rims that have a psi rating of 110psi so you can put on G rated 14 ply tires. (Sailun s637 or Good year G614)

Thanks,

They are probably no longer available, but they would have been provided by Tredit Tire. Contact them and you can probably get a good deal on something similar.

I would think going to an aftermarket would be better , Tires, and Wheels I believe is one website, there is others. As said doubtful you will be able to get OE wheels, and most likely would not be rated for 110 psi.

I would definitely want the higher rated wheel regardless, and just in case you do get that trailer loaded up to its GVWR, you would want to go the G rated tires .

quoted from the web site:

When you switch your trailer from 235/80R16 or 235/85R16 wheels and tires to commercial grade 19.5" wheels and 225/70R19.5 tires,

Thats interesting, can't say I have seen a fifth wheel with 19.5 on them . I would think they would not fit on just any fifth wheel. Clearance would sure be an issue.

Went to their website, can't see where you would make any progress going to 19.5 over a G rated 16" tire

Those G rated 19.5 225/70R19.5 are rated for 3970 at 110 psi, you can do that with a G rated 235/85/16 Sailun. Actually the 235/85/16 Sailun is rated for 4400 lbs. But the wheels would be limited .

Additionally the aspect ration is decreased 3". Rather thna flexing when turning they say the tire will slide. I am not sure that is better.

I an not a fan of low profile tires on anything. I defiantly would not want them on my fifth wheel trailer.

Shipping Weight: 10065 lbs

Carrying Capacity: 4095 lbs

Hitch: 2160 lbs
With these numbers, the designed weight on the axles would be 12,000 lbs, and it's likely that this rig only has 6,000 axles, so all the discussion about needing truck tires and G range tires is a bit of overkill. He could still use G range tires, but he would probably end up investing more than he paid for the trailer if he went with some of the tire upgrades mentioned.
