spare wheel size?

Hi everyone. So on our new-to-us travel trailer we do not have a spare. I can find a wheel online easily enough, but how do I know I am ordering the correct size? Offset, bolt pattern, etc.

My travel trailer is a 2007 Jayco Jayflight with 6 lug 15" wheels.

Thanks for any advice.

A local tire shop should be able to get you 1 for a fair price, we use purcells tire in AZ, usually have 1 within a day or 2

With a wheel off your trailer , you measure from the center of one lugnut hole to the far edge of the 2nd lugnut hole ( you skip one hole) this will give you the spacing measurement.( It would be written like this for example 6X5.5x15 the first 6 are the amount of lug holes ,the 5.5 is the measurement you just found ,and the 15 is the dia of the the tire seating area of the rim. For back space you run a streight edge across the rim(rim only ,not the tire and rim.) and measure the distance fron the rim edge of the streight edge to the plate that has the lug holes. You now have (as example) a 6x 5.5 x 16 with a 2.5" offset. Hope this helps.

I'd suggest giving Scott a call at Trailer Tires and Wheels. They specialize in these and will know exactly what you need.
