Where can I buy a 19.5" x 6.75" steel spare wheel?

I am trying to purchase a "spare" steel wheel for my 2007 Thor/Four Winds Hurricane 34B. I have (6) factory 10-lug 19.5" steel wheels on the RV currently. However, after a blowout on the interstate and a seven-hour wait for roadside assistance, I decided to buy a spare wheel for the RV. RV dealer directed me to contact Ford dealership directly (because RV has Ford chassis) with VIN to determine "wheel width". Ford dealer told me the rim is 6.75" wide, but that the wheel had 8-lugs, which is not accurate, because the other (6) wheels have 10-lugs each. Please advise any recommendations regarding which salvage yard or wheel supplier I should contact to buy the spare wheel. Thanks Kindly

I would buy a set of aluminum wheels and sell off 3 of your steel wheels..

you could almost come out with aluminum for close to free

I bought my spare at a local salvage yard with less than 5 year old tire for $200.00. It was taken off a utility company truck. Your 10 lug wheel is the newer Ford wheels. Mine is the 8 lug.

I can tell what I did, I called rickson tire/rim sales and they said they could make me one for under $300 plus shipping but it would take 4-6 weeks (I am still waiting but it has only been a few weeks). I did call the Ford Dealer and they wanted $570 plus shipping and tax and would take 2-3 weeks to get. If I get froggy Rickson will mount/balance a tire on the rim before shipping if I like.

Go to any truck tire dealer and they should be able to get you a new or used rim.

Found this on Ebay, it shows an 8 lug but the seller says your getting a 10 lug same as my 99 has. It also says 19.5 X 6 which I think the width is incorrect. Would have to call or email seller to verify the width. Shipping is $50.

There are both 6.0" and 6.75" widths out there. That is, 19.5" x 6.0" is probably correct.
