Any suggestions as to where I could find that same rim as I am missing a spare, and would like matching. So far it seems like it is a CE Smith rim?

I've had some good luck on some trailer tires that are for horse trailers. They tend to trailer a lot and have similar weight.

Yea, but i didnt feel like risking the weekend trip over something that can be easily replaced.

Dropped trailer off at tire shop, 2 new tires $89 each. Not bad i guess.

nah boat usually stays in the water. We were just driving out to a lake about an hour away to take a friend out for her bday. Now i just need to find the same style rim for a spare. I think it's similar to the one i linked.

I got my spares (TWO) from fleetfarm.... I think I paid $35 a wheel? Plus $69 a tire (spares)

I just bought four new wheels, and had them powder coated black to match my truck with four new additional tires.... I am getting ready to swap out the wheels/tires in fall.

I have OEM wheels (1978) and tires (Whoa!) AND two spares that I will be selling. So, if you have the measurements, I may have a spare or two for you? (the problem is shipping - insane.)
