What wheel size, '04 w/15" tire?

I need to buy a new wheel (for a spare) & went to the local tire place. Without bringing the trailer or a wheel to compare, they said I needed to know what the spacing distance for the 6-bolt lug pattern was as well as the 'offset'. Apparently knowing it is a 15" tire/wheel with a 6-bolt pattern is not enough. Any help appreciated.

Ed you might try your spare off of your Ford it might fit. Just kidding !!!
Call Caple Shaw in Fort Worth they are up by the stock yards they carry all kinds of trailer parts. I buy from them all the time and they will have what you want at a fair price . If have any questions give me a call.

somewhere I read a post stating that there was a difference in the rims for the airstreams(or other trailers for that matter) and a "regular wheel would fail". search the forum and verify.
some wheels center on the hubs and some on the lug bolts. there was even a picture in the post of a ugly rim failure. I know it will cost but better safe than sorry , order rim from airstream would be best bet.

Uwe, thanks for the link. Those are just what I'm looking for. At $90.- that's $70.- less than the dealer ($160.- for alloy).

I got mine from American Racing, but they are very similar to the ones pictured. Mine have little rivets around the perimeter, which I thought was fitting.....
The weight rating surely looks good on the ones in the link.
