I put an original Michelin tire on a steel wheel, and keep that in the rear storage compartment. There is lots of room and I don't use it all. BUT, in hindsight, I would have just carried the tire. I would not attempt a change myself, that's what Good Sam is for, and I believe those people that make road service calls have the ability to mount and change a tire on the spot.

I too am looking for a spare, BUT... you have aluminum rims made by ultra wheels, the problem they aluminum rims use a conical lug and the steel use a flange faced nut. They are NOT interchangeable. unless you want the wheel to pass you on the road. it will either break the stud or oblong the holes on the rim which will create the previously mentioned problem.

All you need to do if you want to is carry a set of wheel nuts with the spare that fit them!

Fam cruiser thanks for the input i didnt think of that. I will pick up some spare lugs as well. It always something. I got the spare from costco i pre ordered online and went to the store to have it mounted on the rim. They almost wouldnt do it because e450 was not it there computer system. I had to get the manager to sign off on it. The simplest things turn out tobe the biggest PIA

I bought a tire change ramp for my TT. It sure saves time changing a tire and I don't have to use a jack. It only works for dual axles only. My spare is already on a steel rim.

Yeah one thing to note is that tire dealers are getting really picky about what they mount on what rim for what vehicle. So if you want to go to an e rated tire on a tt that has d rated on it .. Might be a good idea to take just the rims and have them mount them. The tag on the side of my camper clearly states the size and rating for the tires and I am not sure my local discount tire store would mount anything different..... Once again those lawyers at work to avoid trouble. ... I know this how you ask.? Well I had a tire for my daughters van I bought at Walmart but they wouldn't mount it because that particular wheel only had 4 lugs on it. So I took it to my shop and pulled the wheel so I could run it over to discount tire and have it mounted. I get over there and they ask me what it's going on and I tell them so they look up the vehicle and tell me they can't mount it because it is the wrong size. Now I already have the left side mounted by Walmart and they had sold me both telling me they were the right size. So now I have to take both rims off and back to Walmart to have them install the right size tire on them. 4 hours later I am saying why couldn't they have just mounted the tire. It was like 10 lbs different load range. Lol
