Jayco 2012 spare tire

Does anyone know where I can get a used rim and tire for a 2011 Jayco greyhawk 31fs? I live in Monroe, Michigan and purchased this class c last week used. It did not come with a spare tire and I am uneasy traveling without a spare. I would not change it myself since I have emergency road service, but I would just as soon not pay for someone to find and mount a crappy tire on a rim for an excessive amount.

Check with your local truck tire shops. I would just buy a used tire the same size as the ones on the coach and carry it for emergencies. The road side service guys should be able to mount it on your rim. Carrying the tire on a rim is a lot of weight.

When we picked up our new-to-us 2011 Greyhawk 31 DS it also came with no spare. We immediately purchased a new 225/75-R16 Michelin LTX MS2 (which was the newer version of the tires on the unit) at the nearest Costco (cheapest and quickest we could find the tire in the area) and carried it as a loose spare until we got home and purchased a rim.

Many people never purchase a rim but rather just carry the loose spare so they ensure they have the right size tire (at a non rip off price) for the repair guy changing it up for them on the side of the road.

Speaking of tires, if you were not already aware of it (the dealer we purchased our unit from was not) make sure you check the tires on your RV. There is a Michelin recall on currently for the tires supplied on many Jayco Greyhawk units produced from 2010 to 2013. The tires on our Greyhawk were included in the recall and we ended up getting 6 new tires (installed) at no cost to us.

Here is a thread talking about the recall and in one of the posts about half way down there is a link to the Michelin US site that explains the recall :

Jayco Grayhawk Tire Recall

If your Greyhwak treats you half as well as ours has so far you'll absolutely love it !

I just bought a 2014 Minnie Winnie 31K and it did not come with a spare either but I went on Ebay and found a rim cheap.....look around .....I also found a Ford van spare tire hoist and I'm going to install it under the rig where it should have been in the first place.....I found out from other owners that all the Mfg's have done away with spare tires....probably got sued
