My first post on this forum. By way of introduction, my wife and I recently purchased a 1990 33' Airstream Land Yacht. The coach is in excellent condition, however the P30 chassis needed some serious upgrades to bring it up to snuff: Super Steer bell cranks, Roadmaster front sway bar and rear sway bar bushing kit, Bilsteins all around, Banks PowerPack and a Gear Vendors.
Needless to say, we are most pleased with the results thus far. The MH is much more stable, has a more comfortable ride and the Banks/GV combo is dynamite!
HST, though, I need some information and advice, please.
I need new tires, and am interested in replacing the skinny 6" front wheels with wider (preferrably 7.5") wheels to take advantage of the low profile tires now available.
So far, I have been unable to locate 7.5" x 19.5 wheels which will fit a P30 chassis.
Do any of you more experienced motorhomers know where I might be able to purchase a pair of them at a reasonable price?
I'll leave the drive and tag axles wheels as they are, and replace those tires with "stock" 8R 19.5s.
While we are talking wheels/tires, what brand tires would you recommend?
Also, I am interested in increasing my front track a couple of inches. Anyone know of a safe, effective way to do that?
Thanks in advance for you advice and comments. I appreciate this forum -- I learned a great deal about motorhomes and RVEEing in the months before I purchased my LY, and look forward to learning even more as time goes on.
