Spare tire?

I have a 1990 Excella - it's 25' long - its tires are 225x75R, 15s. It has 6 bolt pattern wheels. I don't have a spare. What's the easiest way to get one. Is the bolt pattern standard. Will a Ford or Chevy or Dodge wheel fit it. Thanks

The bolt pattern is common for trailers. You can get an inexpensive wheel or mounted spare at etrailer.com. VintageTrailerSupply.com has wheels but not tires. Most Airstream trailers require load range D tires although yours may not, check the label.

You need zero offset wheels. These are widely used on trailers but not on cars or trucks, so a Ford/Chev/Dodge wheel won't work.

I went to my local trailer place and got a complete wheel and tire for $100. I would not run it 100% of the time but it is fine for a spare.

Perry.

You got a heck of a deal.

Make sure the wheel has a rating of at least 2600 pounds.

2,600 pounds and zero offset. Otherwise it won't clear the wheel well.

Thanks for the input - going on a little trip this weekend - hope I don't need a spare tire (although I'm going to get one) - probably need a spare everything - again thanks for the good help

That's what I said. Well you guessed it. In the campground flat tire. Luckily I had a tire (no wheel). When I called Good Sam, I explained the tire no wheel, so the repairman was equipped to change tire spare tire to the flat tire wheel. It would have definitely been easier if I had a spare tire on a wheel and cheaper! Extra charge to brake a tire off the wheel and reinstall. Better be safe then sorry. I now have a proper spare tire on a wheel!

I mounted in on the axle and it fits. The rim is D rated or better.

I am sure it would have been 2 or 3 times that at an RV place. This place builds trailers and I don't think they markup stuff that much.
