Try www.etrailer.com for tires with or without rims, and they show you how to measure for bolt circle diameter too. LW

I may have missed it, but did you actually get under the trailer and look for a spare?

As for buying one, plan on stopping at a reputable tire shop next time you're towing the camper if that's possible for you. Might be safer than measuring yourself if, like me, you're not too sure. http://www.mrt-wheels.com/boltpattern.html

[QUOTE=cekkk;210185]I may have missed it, but did you actually get under the trailer and look for a spare?/QUOTE]

Last night when I go home I got under the camper and looked over the entire underside. There is no tire under there. It was kinda worthwhile though because I got to really check out the tanks, wiring, hoses, axles, brakes framing, etc. I also checked all interior compartments. I even checked the roof - silly I know but hey, leave no stone unturned. When I search for 2013 26BH trailers on youtube I've seen the spares mounted to the rear bumper. I would assume that they would not have multiple spare locations for the same trailer.

I'm planning on measuring the bolt patter when I get home this evening. Hopefully, it will be obvious which lug patter I have. My initial concern was the fact that the patterns are all within 1/4". I'll let you know what I measure.

Checking the roof is not silly. I believe most problems begin at the factory. It's sure smart to check the roof because tears, bad seams or caulking can lead to problems. Best to get to them when they are easy fixes. I really hope your camper was put together as well as ours was. Happy camping.

Looks like 5 on 4.5" pattern. Found a sticker with a part number on the rim and that's what comes up. Dexstar 17-143. Google, what would I do without you?

So I went and picked up a spare tire. Decided $150 was a good insurance policy so I don't spend any more vacation time with a breakdown than necessary. Now where do I put the darn thing? I was hoping there would be a designated spot like there is in a car, but it doesn't look like that's the case.

The spare on my 26BH is mounted on a bolt-on rack on the rear bumper. It was on the tt when I bought it from the dealer.

I was really amazed that my TT didn't come with one. I noticed that starting with the '14 Jay Flights they made the spare part of the mandatory options group. I'm also a little peeved that I have to go buy a mount so I have a place to keep the darn thing. I was hoping for an empty spot under the frame or something. Oh well.

I actually have 2 spares on the back bumper of the tt. I figure if I run over something and flatten both tires (tandem axle) I won't be stuck. Many hardware stores and trailer shops carry the rims and tires as a package. I think I paid about $50 for the set up and since it was a spare I wasn't that concerned about the brand. I also bought another spare carrier for the second tire
