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

When I read the initial post and the title, I immediately thought of this:

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?
