Wheel for Spare Tire

I currently do not have a spare tire for my 75 Trade Wind. I understand that you can limp along on 3 wheels if you have to, but try and find a tire shop on a Sunday! I am now thinking of getting a spare to carry in the back of my PU truck when on the road. I need to find a wheel. I have the aluminum wheels that attach to the drums with bolts, not nuts. This rules out all of the economy steel wheels at the discount RV stores. Does anyone have a suggestion for a wheel for my trailer that I can get? Looks are not important, safety is.

If money is no object, you can get one from the Airstream company store for about $300, with a brand new Marathon tire mounted on it.
If money is somewhat of an object, you can try someplace like Colaw RV Salvage for a "road tested" wheel.

Richard,

Buy the steel wheel and an extra set of bolts just for that wheel. I did that when I put aluminum wheels on a car and did not want to buy five new wheels.
