Then do what I posted. By a new painted steel wheel, 15" x 6" or 15" x 7", 6-5.5 bolt pattern, for $40-$60 and put a used tire on it. I spent a total of $60 and that was with a spare tire cover and mounted to the trailer. If it is just for a spare, the wheel width doesn't matter as long as it's close. I did test fit the new wheel to make sure it fit over the hub, before I had the tire mounted, but it fit fine, and with plenty of clearence.
