Looking for a spare - 1988 Excella

I need a spare wheel and tire for my 1988 Excella. Does anyone know what wheel I need and the best place to find it? The wheels it has now are 6-bolt, but I don't know the rest of the specs. Where I expect to see a size on the tire I see 7.0 x 15, which doesn't look like the sizes I'm used to seeing on my cars and trucks. thanks.

The bolt pattern is 6 bolts on a 5.5" circle, 15" rim. Are you looking for a matching rim, or just one to keep as a spare that you don't mind looking different if you have to put it on the trailer? If you just want one the right size and bolt pattern, you can get one with a tire already installed from places like Northern Tool or a trailer supply. If you want one that matches your current rims, you'll probably need to find a used matching one.

Oh, and welcome to the forums!

Thanks! I'm not trying to match the stock wheels, so I'll stop by a trailer supply store.

i beelieve the stock wheel has a 2600 lb rating and zero offset. i'd also check the date code on those tires. most trailers have switched to radial tires for quite some time.

I know I'm a bit far from Waco but I have 4 steel wheels ( sorry, no tires ) that I've taken off my AS that I will offer for free to anyone needing them and close enough to pick them up here in New Jersey. I recently put a set of Alum wheels on and have these available. If not off to scrap they will go. I'd rather see them go to a good home though.

If anyone is interested send me a PM and we can work something out.

Thanks all.
