Need a tire and rim for my Thor Freedom Elite 22FE

I purchased a 2021 Thor Freedom eLITE 22FE on a Ford 350 super duty chassis. I trying to find a tire and rim to carry as a spare. I currently have Hankook Kontrol Dynapro HT LT 225/75R16 tires. I live in Agusta Georgia.
I can't find anyone that has the same tire and rim on my class C that could I use as a spare for the front tires. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Geffan

For clarification, understand that the front and rear wheels & tires are interchangeable. And the E350 and E450 are identical.

Just two weeks ago, I sold four E350/E450 wheels with the original yet excellent condition tires off our 2007 rig to a fellow with an old E350 box truck for $400. I replaced them with Alcoa wheels for our E350 rig.

Just showing off the four new Alcoa wheels on our rig. Two original steel wheels remain hidden on the inside back positions.

You can get a steel rim for a spare from etrailer:
www.etrailer.com/Trailer_Tires_and_Wheels/Lionshead/LHHA420.html The folks at etrailer should be able to verify that this wheel will fit.

Google up Hankook Kontrol Dynapro HT LT 225/75R16 tires and you will find many places that sell them; e.g., Discount Tire, Tire Rack, Walmart, etc. So you could take your newly purchased wheel to Discount Tire or other tire store and have them mount and balance the new tire so you would be good to go.

RVers seem to take many approaches to the spare situation. I carry a tire only .... knowing that my Coachnet roadside service will send a truck with the equip to mount it. I only carry the tire because I know my luck....I will need it late Sat afternoon or Sunday .... somewhere in the wilds of Wyoming when the tire stores are closed. lol Your approach is a good one; especially if you are set up to install the spare yourself if needed.

Hope you get set up soon........nothing like a little peace of mind.

Safe travels to ya.

Also try www.rockauto.com as they have a selection to choose from with prices that vary.

Iím surprised you are having trouble. Iíd assume any big tire dealer that wasnít brand specific could order your rim and tire. I had no issue getting mine at Les Schwab which is only in the PNW and I recently had to buy a specific tire brand to match here in FL at Mavis Tire stores. They had to order one but it only took a few days.

I installed mine on the Roadmaster spare tire carrier that slides into my receiver.

If you get a flat in the wilds of WY good luck with roadside assistance. All the equipment needed is a jack and a lug wrench.
