Post Need spare tire rim for size 700-15 1976 has alum mag wheels

We were traveling back from Zion Nat Park and was swindled into the "your tires are too old" senario by a gas station / tire store. We fell for it a bit and while the attendant was changing the tire we found out that the rim and the brand new spare tire I had mounted was the wrong size. Where can I find a cheap rim for the spare that will fit 700-15 6 hole pattern? Can I just go to Big O or any other tire center? It is a 1976 Int"l with alum mag wheels.

By the way we made it home to Ogden,UT just fine. But I am replacing the tires in the spring.

Might try Etrailer.com, they show one. Also Vintage Trailer supply has rims with the proper bolt pattern.

I think you need a "0" offset rim. But you should check with Andy at Inland RV.

The wheel should have a "zero" offset, AND have at least a 2600 pound rating, no less.
