97 Winne stolen spare tire F53 chassis

Hey guys, someone stole my spare tire from my '97 Winne Adventurer which is built on the Ford F53 chassis. Its a 37.5' with tag axle. I have called both winnebago and ford and neither can give me information on the wheel needed. In my manual it just says 16.0x6.0.
Does anyone know what wheel I need and where I can get one?
Thanks!

A 16X6 is the equivalent of a 215/85R16. That's the tire size. You can find a 16" steel wheel at any junk yard, count the lug nut holes in your current wheels. When I'm buying a wheel, I always roll it on a flat surface before purchase, watching it as it travels. Surprisingly easy to see if it's out of round that way.

You could also look in RV salvage yards.


And you are probably using 235/85-16 tires and not 215/85-16. Check your weeights decal.

I should also have said that this https://shop.myerstiresupply.com/ERP...207:3100012636


is the correct valve stem for this application. I got a set of these for mine, and anow have no need for extenders.

Love's tire centers, many truck shops and even truck stops have those extenders Myers shows...except on their web site you have to go all the way to the check out to see their prices. Which I expect to be outrageous. I bought a couple brass extenders for my 22.5 tires at $8 each from loves though I image they are $12 now. Bought the extenders for the dual sets for $25 at a small OK Tire Center. All brass. Really great having them where I can get to read tire pressures easily. Very handy.

I live on the west side of Los Angeles, there are no salvage yards near me :/

Looks like there are several near by LA from this listing: RV Salvage Yards

'Course dunno how many are still open since the Covid thing. Best to call.

The closest thing on there is hours away as far as I can tell, plus most of the links are dead.
