Thumbs up Business Plug / Review - Used Parts

I was having one heck of a time finding a spare wheel for my 2017 Thor ACE 30.3 (F53 chassis).

Tried eBay, Craigslist with no luck. Looked online at Accuride, and still no luck.

Finally I came across Visone RV in East Bernstadt, KY

Within 5 minutes he knew what I wanted and that he had one in stock. It was $200.00 for the wheel and $68.00 shipping and showed up in very good condition and on time. Bonus: Same color as the originals, but I didn't care.

No kidding, I searched thoroughly for this wheel and it was like hens teeth!
It was a 19.5"x6.75" 10 lug wheel with I think a 225 mm pilot hole. The same wheel in 8 lug was plentiful, but not this one.

For comparison:
The Ford dealer quoted me approx. $675.00 for the wheel.
Camping World was clueless.
General RV quoted me $522.00 but the part number she gave me ended up being a wheel simulator set, not a wheel at all!

So if you need something, give them a try.

P.S. The wheel that showed up was an Accuride wheel. Funny because I could not find a correct Accuride wheel in 10 lug in their catalog. Only an 8 lug.
I will post the part # later in case anyone ever goes hunting like me. I did verify the offset, and the bolt pattern and the size and width are stamped in the wheel, so, it's the right one.

P.S.S. Also, I know there is always a debate over spare or no spare. I for one do not want to be on the side of the road while someone tries to find this wheel, based on my issues finding it.
