Default US supplier of Trailer Spares

Hi .. I am not in US, but have a Karavan boat trailer on my Maxum.

Today for some reason the wheel nuts came loose, damaging rim ... the rim moving back & forth has damaged the studs .. one has sheared off.

I need to find a US source for a new rim, 5 studs & 5 wheel nuts ...

I could go to Karavan ... but can you recommend any other on-line dealer that sells rims/studs/nuts, as Karavan only buy such items in anyway.

I am coming over to US in a weeks time for work, (Miami) my intent is to take a rim back with me.
So need to locate a supplier ASAP.


The original rims were replaced by MAXUM as part of free swap program due to under capacity issues.
(originally had 14" rims) .... current tire is ST205/75R15

Maxum recall notice advised assembly was ST205/75R15 LRD 545


I'm not sure if the 'RD 454' part describes the rim.

Can you recommend a place to get a rim?

Thought it may help if I took a picture of the wheel, shows the rim type I need to buy:



I also sketched out relevant sizes .... tires are ST 225/ 75 R15



If anyone can point me to somewhere in Miami I could get one of these - or a good value on-line dealer be grateful.

(be wonderful if somone knew where I could get one in UK ... but doubt it.)

Had some good news - USMarine (who made the Maxum range) are providing me with a complete new wheel for free .. and shipping it to UK free of charge.

Now that is what you call excellent customer service ....

This post is pretty old now ... had free wheel sent by US Marine 3 years ago.

No longer have a Maxum sold it at end of 2012 .......... I would happily have bought another if they were still making them.
