You may want to check threads over on the U-Haul Facebook site. [closed group... you have to join to participate] They've had many discussions of just this problem... unique bolt pattern/spacing and wheel offset. There's a parts cross-reference chart in the "Files" section of the site.
In theory at least, you can still get a rim from U-Haul. I get the impression that the degree of willingness to search one out for you varies a lot from one U-Haul shop to another.
Hubs can also be changed out, in order to give more wheel options.
I recently picked up a space-saver spare with a compatible bolt pattern as an emergency back-up unit...... from a used wheel & tire dealer. Offset wasn't the same, but the tire was narrow enough to fit in the U-Haul wheel-well anyway. [Note: most people frown on the space-saver spare option.]
Best of luck in the hunt.......

Gary has it right. Join the Facebook group and look in the "files" section at the top of the page for all kinds of good info
