Focus owner needs help with odd Motor Home tires

While I am a Focus owner / operator / repairman - I also own a GMC Motorhome that I need some help with. It has 16.5 inch tires - and I don't think they make this size anymore. The actual size is: 8:00 X 16.5 inches. How or where can I get new rims that will fit on my motorhome so I can purchase 200mm X 16.0 tires - I called one tire / wheel dealer and the six new wheels and tires were around $300 each... Any suggestions?

Quick search got references to Samson/double coin/cooper/coker tires as brands used recently by others in your boat.

Might try searching a bit more, who did you try?

(Made this it's own thread, wouldn't get much attention where it was)

Throw me a PM sometime, it'd be fun to meet up when we're both in the Village.
