Using The 19.5 x 6.0 As A Spare

Thank you for checking my post. My search for a spare 19.5 x 6.75 has proven fruitless. My best option to date is a shop that will manufacture the wheel for $300+ shipped. Not terrible if you are ok with a 12-14 week wait time...

Before I proceed with this option I wanted to get some feedback on using the 6.0 as a temporary spare. Has anyone done this? Is it worth spending the extra $200+ plus 3 months of wait time to get the 6.75? Thanks!

Chris

Contact a junkyard, I am sure they have lots of rims they would sell you for far less than 300 bucks.

Good Luck

Thanks for the reply. I have tried this. No one seems to have a good 19.5 x 6.75. The one time a yard had one it was damaged. I will continue to look but I am having a very hard time tracking one down.

Be sure to call them and make sure it will fit your application.
