Realistic wheels for trailers

It seems like it is hard to find realistic aluminum trailer wheels that look like Alcoa wheels. Has anyone found wheels that look like Alcoa wheels with baby moon hub caps, that don’t cost a fortune?

Whenever I do find wheels for my trailers that I like they always get discontinued it seems.

I have been making my own baby moon hubcaps by grinding down stock hub caps and polishing them but I would rather just be able to buy them. Below are two wheels with low profile tires on them which I use for my drop decks. The one on the left would be good if I could get baby moon hub caps on it and lug nuts. The one on the right is a wheel where I make the hub caps.

 

Wish I could find wheels and hub caps like these below, that weren’t 65.00 per set.

 

What have any of you found that are similar and are in production and reasonably priced?

New 53′ Drop Deck BeaverTail Spread Axle Design

Hi Guys,

I appreciate all your interest you have shown in my trailers, and I sure appreciate all my customers who have purchased my trailers!

I just finished a new trailer design and my one last trailer before I quit building for the foreseeable future. I had wanted to build a beavertail since no one has one, at least not like this. I will be moving to a new state next month so this trailer may be my last for quite awhile or for good.

This trailer is the first one I have built with the new black anodized aluminum support legs. Much better than the plastic ones, wish they had had these earlier. Trailer is all aluminum, the only thing not aluminum is the tires and light lenses. This is one of my favorite trailers so far.

Hope you guys like it, I will sell it if someone is interested. You can email me at darnat2@gmail.com and we can get a price for you.

Here is a link to the page for the Beavertail trailer

Thanks a lot,

Darwin

Super B flat bed trailer is completed

I managed to finish up the Super B flat bed trailers. I put up some pictures on the page which you can view here. Turned out well, by far the largest of all the trailers I have built, and the most time consuming!
