Spare Wheel

My trailer did not come with a spare, or tie downs..... but now would like to put the cheapest spare I can on it as I will cover the spare. I have been without spare for 4 years already, but don't want to push my luck any more.

Where is the best deal for a tire and wheel. MC said the wheel style is no longer available. It is 2001 dual axle trailer.

I just use a chrome wheel and keep an MC cover over it.

For a little over $100 I got a galvanized rim and new Goodyear Marathon radial, same as on the trailer, from Discount Tire. I am sure you could find one a little cheaper. I wouldn't push my luck either, I had to use it shortly after getting it...first time in 20 years of trailering.

you know the right size of the 5 lug variety on the 2004 dual axle trailers? tire is 215/75r 14, but there may be different 5 lug nut measurements. discount tire has about 15 different measurements for that wheel on their website.

good job with deciding to get a spare, we had 2 blow-outs on our tires, last year on was so bad that a chunk of rubber went flying right throught our fender! The first blow-out, we had no spare tire, we were screwed on the side of a highway!

jletoo; Thank you very much!! I'll let you know the size tomorrow. I'm not sure we can ship across country economical. I will near Sacramento CA next week, but not sure that will work out with you in Orange county. Could be a long drive for me.

I will look at the size in the morning, and get a whole pattern spacing for you also..You are right, the size and weight, probably is a no win situation on shipping costs
