Spare tire wheel whitehawk 2014

Guys, I noticed that my new 2014 WH 24rbs delivered in April came with a Goodyear Marathon spare tire mounted on a white steel wheel while I have trailer king on alu wheels under the trailer .

Worse, the DOT on all 4 the trailer is 3613, I can live with that but the spare is DOT 3810 ! so basically 5 years old already....I request to have the spare replaced by a new recent one. My question is about the wheel, did you get on your WH a regular steel wheel or an aluminium wheel like the one under the trailer ? thanks

When trailers come with nice aluminum rims, rarely does any manufacturer deliver with a spare being the same aluminum rim. Even auto manufacturers use steel rims for spares when they deliver the vehicle with the nicer looking aluminum rims (sometimes, but usually no.)
remember, the idea behind a spare tire, regardless of the type of tire or what it can handle, is for temporary use. Use it long enough to get you to a place to get the regular road wheel fixed.
