airstream safari 1968 spare tire and wheel specification

I am looking for a spare tire for my 1968 safari. I would appreciate knowing the tire and wheel specifications and a good place to buy one in southern california.

My existing tires are 700-15 LT on a standard 6 lug rim with the moon hubcap.

Taking a trip soon. So would like to have the spare to put up on that rack in front undercarriage.

Thanks.

Your wheels should be 6x15, 6 lugs at 5.50 inches, zero offset and rated at 2600 pounds. I bought mine over the internet a year ago for around $40 plus shipping. I would match the tire with what you have on the trailer.

Found this listing on Craigslist

Travel trailer Tire - ST 225/75 D15

Tire and rim for Travel trailer. ST 225/75 D15 6 lugnut . Used good condition (normal wear) was used for spare tire. Sold our travel trailer.

It is off a Jayco and the seller does not know how to check to see if the rim is the correct type. Any suggestions?

The wheel I bought was A-WH156-60E at this site:O.E.M. Single Wheels: Low Cost Trailer Supplies

I would stay away from used.
  1. You have no idea of the rating of the wheel.
  2. The tire is most likely many years old (check the date code)
  3. You have bias tires and this is a radial (not good to mix)

Unless my counting is off that is a five lug wheel.

Sounds like it's time to hit the yellow pages. My first call would be Discount Tire. BTW, this is the rim with a 7.00x15 Towmaster mounted.
