We have a 2002 Bailey Pageant Champagne. We would like to fit it with alloy wheels. Is this advisable and where could we obtain them from and does anyone fit them?
We are about to change our Jubilee Statesman and I have a pair of alloy wheels advertised on UK Campsite at
Is the air included too John?
Air priced in line with inflation.
I know when to take a hint :O(Hilarious
Hot air not provided as there is already an excess
It's like a comedy road show in here tonight!
Thanks G S,you live and learn(sorry Lutz!)John G It is very easy to get a car wheel with the same pcd as a caravan ie the old caravan wheels with wide spacings 5.5" pcd I think are same as a Ford 100e this size Pcd was used buy caravan manufaturers in 13" OD for heavy vans 1300 kg + until about 1997 when 14" wheels on 5 studs came into use but these are 115 mm pcd on 5 studs which is a common BMW/ Vauxhall size,the older 4 stud 13" wheels on the Alko chassis are 100mm pcd which is the same as BMW and Vauxhall again,But the Jappenese vehicles use a Imperial pcd for there wheels G S
they look good. end ofMy last three cars have alloys, what do they do? I can't tell any difference.
do me a favour and weigh them, lighter they are not, i thinkThe main advantage of alloy wheels is a reduction in unsprung weight, which means improves ride comfort and handling. This very relevant at a cars suspension design phase. Less unsprung weight means lighter less bulky suspension components.
If you swapped your standard steels for some alloys of same diameter/width you'd be pushed to feel any real difference.
there is a rumour that they are based on vauxhall wheels. (the 4 stud that is, no idea about 5's)Agree with what you say Lutz but would have thought it difficult to get a car wheel that would fit the stud configuration on the caravan.
Certainly finding a spare wheel has always ended up at a caravan dealer.
Perhaps I didn't try hard enough.
