I have a total of 8 wheels, 3 on the trailer, 2 with the old tires on them and 3 bare. Some have more rust than others. If you look long enough you will find an iltis owner or a wheel on kijiji. That is how I found all mine.

Firestone Destination M/T2 235/85R16. (215/85 would be a better fit to OEM but the size is hard to find.)
They were difficult to install due to the rubbber rim edge protector but they went on and look good. I'm glad to be using tires that aren't over 20 years old now.
Still not able to find springs so I too chose a "cuban style" refreshing. It was a lot of work removing the springs from the trailer but I gained ride height and it sits more level now. Mine were not as bad as Jim's but the end result was the same, much better spring appearance. I coated them in...

Post any pictures you have of yours being towed please.
I ended up building a 12x16 shed and push the M101CDN into it during the winter. It had to happen because my wife wasn't into a 3rd year of having it occupy the carport while her daily driver sat in the snow. If you could swing the shed or at least canopy of some sort you could avoid rain/snow...
