I had my contact in China obtain some quotes for AAR B-36 Wheels made to AAR Spec M107/M-208.B-36 with a small rough bore of 6"ID. Price if only 8 wheels ordered is $2688/each, if 36 wheels ordered $1690/each, both prices are FOB China. Price for shipping a container load of 36 wheels would be about $200 per Wheel shipped to your door.
If anyone is interested contact me and I will put you in touch with my Chinese Source.

These should be a standard passenger car tread-braked wheel, either heavyweight or lightweight cars.

They should be hub-stamped, I would think.

Yes these are standard 36" diameter wheels made to latest AAR specifications. Getting wheels with a small rough bore is the problem today with a 6" ID rough bore these wheel will work for 5 x 9 , 5 1/2 x 10 and 6 x 11 axles wheel seats. Drawings and specifications can be provided if there is any interest

If you need B36 wheels, or any kind of wheel or axle we would be very happy to make you a proposal.

We have wheel factories in China and in France, and can offer good prices and great flexibility.

Drop me a line if you need anything.

How about Standard Steel in Burnham, PA?

No other US manufacturers remain?
