Spare Tire Saga...
It's not easy to set up a spare tire!
Finding a good source with a best price took some doing. 19.5 / Goodyear RV760. I know, there are better tires, but the MH is new and we wanted a matching tire. $600.
The rim. I called 5 MH dealers and 3 regional truck shops to find a used 6.75 x 19 1/2", 10 nut pattern wheel. No luck. So I got the idea to call a Ford commercial truck shop (in Buffalo) and they had 3 used rims. I probably should have gone in to the brokerage business and bought all 3 because they we charging $75.00 each.
Mounting -- no thought in the design of the MH for a tire. And it won't fit in the basement. So I ordered a Roadmaster spare tire carrier. I've yet to assemble it and I'm unsure if it's going to cause me an issue with my tow bar elevation. $547. (Amazon Prime - my best friend).
I did all of this so I never have to use it. And should we need it, we won't be overly delayed in our travels.
But it's been a real pain... Oh, now I need a torque wrench to assemble the tire carrier!
Question (if you've read this far) any reason I can't paint the rim with some black spray paint?
