No Spare Tire!

1973 Safari doesn't seem to have a spare tire, nor a place for one. I've read to just throw the spare in the truck bed, which I'm fine with, but how do I know what size rim, offset, etc.? Take one of my current tires into a tire shop I guess???

The wheel is a 15", 6" wide, 6 lug on 5.5" centers, zero offset. The spare fits under the trailer behind the propane tanks. It takes some modification of the belly pan and a bracket which is available.

Check your existing tires and buy the same size tire.
