Spare Wheel

I want to find a spare wheel, then buy a new tire and have it mounted on the wheel. I see in the Winnebago parts manual that the front and rear aluminum wheels have different part numbers. I just want to find a steel wheel, like the inside duals, for a spare. Will a wheel that size fit any position, as a spare? Thanks for the help as always!

best solution is if you want to carry a spare just carry the tire and coach net.
they will come out and change it to where it is needed.

That's what I do on my Journey. The spare tire fits perfect in the upper rear storage compartment. If it was mounted on a wheel, I don't think I could get it out without a forklift.

You didn't state the size but if it is a 22.5 yes it will fit all positions. I am pretty sure a 19.5 will as well. A tire dealer that deals in truck tires will have what you need probably cheaper than an RV dealer. Like said above if storage is a problem than a loose tire sometimes is a good option and have it mounted when needed. Happy travels!

On aluminum wheels one is inside polished and the other is outside polished, otherwise there is no difference.
Yes, they fit front or rear, inside or outside. You just turn them around for the position you're mounting them. The inside rear and the front are turned the same way. That's why the valve stems seem to point the wrong way on the wheels and you need a dual foot chuck.

Thanks for all the helpful info. Right now I'm leaning toward just buying a spare tire and don't worry about mounting it; let road service do that. Before I take a trip into the real boonies, I may mount it on a wheel. I believe I could change one myself if I had to.

Our lugs take 500 ft lbs, how do you propose to change the wheel since yours probably take at least 425 ft lbs. And wrestling 200#'s of wheel/tire is not easy.

Mr_D: Respectfully, I think you are mistaken about your statements I put in bold above. My front Alcoa wheels don't even resemble my outside rear Alcoa wheels, which have a much deeper "dish". Also, on "most" coaches the inner rear dual is a steel wheel....and while it "may" be possible to switch them to the steer postion, I don't think you'll like the look.

This is one reason "most" people using Alum. wheels don't get tire rotations too often, the cost of dis-mounting them to move the tires around is just not worth it.

If I get a tire mounted on a wheel, I'll get a torque-multiplying wrench for removing the lug nuts. I can get them back on tight enough, although probably not to the exact specified torque. But they'll hold until I get to a torque wrench. As for wrestling the tire/wheel: LEVERAGE.

Your wheels are the same. Should you take off your front wheel turn it around you will see the same depth. I wanted to change my inside steel wheel to match my Alcoa's so I could rotate tires. My tire guy talked me out of it, the inside wheel gets "torn up" from lack of cleaning and road debris and the steel wheel is only 19 pounds heavier than the Alcoa's.

Actually it is true. The rear outers flip around for use on the front. You can also use the rear inner steel ones on the front.
Go ask a trucker or at a truck tire shop, you'll find I'm right.

I use this torque multiplier wrench to remove my tires. Works great.

Welcome To LugWrench.Biz
I went to the Web site, and it states that they are sold out at this time. I really wanted to get this one. I may try the one that I posted about earlier (yellow, and has a higher gear ratio). Thanks for your post!
