Aluminum Wheels - Adventurer

How do I find out the manufacturer of my aluminum wheels on my 2012 Winnebago 32H Adventurer?

On my 2010 Adventurer 32H the wheels had a "ALCOA" sticker on them.

You probably have an insert in your owner's info pack. If not, just call -they will be quick to answer, but you might need the vin/fin.

Jasper,
I don't mean to sound out of place here but, just about every manufacturer of alloy wheels has their stamp on them. I've seen the Alcoa stamp, Accuride stamp, Kelsy Hayes stamp, and more. Are you sure you don't have a stamp on them some place? It might be obscured with something like the cap in the center or ? Just trying to help here.

On my Vista, the manual said they came from Ford but I am pretty sure Alcoa made them

I know about the Alcoa sticker, but there isn't any stamp on the rim. I'll take off the cap and see if its inside like you mentioned.

You may need to call Ford with the vin # since Winnebago may not actually know where Ford sourced them.

Mine are stamped with the "Ford" logo. Made in Taiwan.

I will just have to wait for the RV to come back from the shop. There isn't any documentation in my kit for what type of wheel was supplied. Redlands Truck and RV wanted $595 to install a set of Duallyvalve extensions ( which included the kit) which I thought was quite high. I figured I would just order a set myself and get a truck tire place to install them but I don't know what type of wheel to get the correct grommet.

I must be missing something here and I will have to google Dullyvalve extensions but what would be wrong with Crossfires instead? Fill both tires from one valve stem, equalize pressure between both tires, walk by and see if pressure is okay, etc.

I called Ford this morning and was told that my rig has Alcoa's. Unless Alcoa has changed their rims, these aren't Alcoa's. I will just wait until it comes home and check it out myself. Thanks everyone for the response.

Are these the solid brass valves that are installed in place of the regular valve stems? If not I can't see where the $595 comes from....even if they have to break down the wheels/tires that's pretty high..

Yup.. My thoughts exactly. And no, they weren't the brass ones either.

I put a pair of braided stainless steel extensions on the inner rear wheels and 1" extensions on the valves on the rest of the wheels...Cost was about $30 if I recall.....so far so good took me about 1 hour to install
