Spare tire and wheel

I am looking for any info on a good tire and wheel to have for my 28 foot crossroads z1 271bh. Anyone have a reliable place they order from? Also, since my rig is two hours away does anyone know the factory specs?

Thanks

No 271 in the current on line specs. Here is a 272

ZT272BH - CrossRoads RV

That axle weight number is very misleading because that unit would have two 3500# axles when the proper numbers are used.

As said above ....
You most likely have a 5 lug, 15" wheel - but if it was possibly a special order, it might have heavier axles (5200#) along with a 6 lug, 16" wheel. No real way of telling without seeing the trailer. Additionally and just to be sure, the serial numbers on the axles (or, if lucky a tag) and a call to the axle manufacturer will confirm what capacity you have. Dexter axles have that number stamped on the back side of the tube at about the center.

As far as purchasing a wheel and tire, once you know what you have, any dealer or even an on-line trailer supply can sell a standard wheel and tire for a spare - but be really careful of the brand as some - are called China bombs for a reason

You should check the trailer's certification label. It will have the GAWR listed on it. The OE tires were fitted to GAWR weights, not the axle manufacturer's specs unless by chance they match the vehicle manufacturer's GAWR.

You can get great pricing on tires through Onlinetires. Have them installed locally, usually 15-20 per tire. You can get good pricing on rims through Recstuff.
