Spare trailer wheel

#1 Post by hugger73hatch » Mon Aug 04, 2008 8:01 pm

Anyone know of any parts stores that may carry a 14" spare trailer wheel? I use a 205/75D14. I have to pull my step brothers car about 4 hours from home this weekend and would love to take a spare with me. I have a spare tire, just no rim. I don't need anything fancy, I just need to get it before Saturday and don't want to have to pay overnight charge if I can help it.

Last ones I bought were on Ebay, but I'd bet you can find some at a RV store somewhere close?

RV supply, boat supply or boat sales, maybe Tractor Supply Company, about any autosalvage yard should have something I would think. Too bad you're not near AgriSupply in Garner, NC. They've got about anything you could possibly need for such as that. They sell online too, but that want help much right now.

Hey, I've got 4 good wheels 14" and 4 scary tires on my trailer. I'm like you I need a spare. I've got a salvage Chevy Celebrity at my dads I'm gonna crush and the wheels will fit my trailer, so might want to check that bolt circle. Car wheels might fit. At least for a spare, I wouldn't recomend making long trips on those lightweight car wheels.

Thanks guys. I am going to try a couple of RV places tommorrow. I live in a small town and Richmond, the biggest city closest to me, is about an hour away, but I am headed up there tomorrow on business, so I am going to make some phone calls on the way. Hopefully they will not rake me over the coals.

Thanks for all the help guys. I got one from TCI (Tire Centers). They had one in stock and only cost $35. Not bad for a brand new white spoke steel wheel, at least I am happy. The guy told me he keeps a bunch in stock. If anybody ever is in a jam and needs one quick, you may want to check with them if you have one close to you.
