I actually just found a site that might have the rim for $100. I just sent them an email and will call in the AM because it says only fits up to 2011 E-450 chassis, but the wheel dimensions appear to be the same. I hope that is the case.

I got mine from a place in Minn. cost me a little over $100 - on mine there are two different rims. One 4 slot and the other 8 slot. The place i ordered from was specific that we match that parameter. Got it in and had a tire mounted . Good to go. the other important parameter is the hub size.

Gma.....I see in your signature you have a Fusion that you tow on a dolly. How does that tow? I am going to look at the Fusion next week. Don't want to start a big debate but why did you go tow dolly versus 4 down.

it was a last minute situation - going to Black Hills with Grandkids and needed a toad. So we bought the car and went with a dolly - couldnt get a base plate and brake system installed quick enough. Fusion has been absolutely great to pull. The dolly gives more flexibility. its really a users choice...

How much weight does an extra tire and rim take up in your cargo capacity?

We've decided to get a spare and rim. However the folks at Jayco told us that because the rear bumpers are now bolted instead of welded on, we need to get a fold down spare tire carrier that will be welded to the frame.

Does any one know where such a tire carrier can be obtained?

Thanks!

Our 08 GH 31ss has a spare tire on the rear bumper, offset a bit for the hitch.

@TheLogans... Check with your dealer mine said they can fabricate one to go underneath. However after loading all our stuff in it this weekend, it appears I may be able to put it in the rear storage compartment. I will find out once I get my wheel and tire to my house.

It may not look pretty, but it's functional & keeps more weight off the back end.
