If you are unable to find one used get the part number from this document:
Fiberglass RV - Document Center - Uhaul Wheels

and try calling UHaul service depots to see if you can find any old stock. The site below has a search by zip code.

U-Haul Truck Trailer Parts: Shop for Ford, GMC, International and Toyota truck and trailer parts online or find a part store near you. We sell obsolete, OEM, NOS, parts for used box trucks and trailers.

Some have used mini-spares from GM cars with 4.75" bolt circles in an emergency. http://www.roadkillcustoms.com/hot-r...5&StudSpreadMM

There are other Uhaul owners here that would like to know just how you were able to get those rims, part numbers, and when you get them if they are actually the correct ones

The link is posted above by Thomas G called Document Center -Uhaul wheels and it includes the part numbers for the CT wheels and tires and a phone contact number. I will post after I receive the rims to let everyone know if I got the correct ones on or before this Sunday.

I called my local privetly owned tire shop they told me how to measure the bolt pattern (witch I have now forgot) then they ordered me a new rim. It was for my spare. It fit perfectly.
So there is another option. If you cant find one to mach you can always get new ones..

Usually the problem with UHaul rims is the large positive offset - 1.75". Does your new rim have the right offset?

I will not know until I pick it up on Sat if they are the right ones. I have arraigned to borrow a wheel if they do not fit to get it home. Uhaul billed me $58.25 ea. I will let everyone know how it works out before Sun.

Wow! They gave you a deal. We paid Uhaul more than that.

A lot depends on the willingness and knowledge of your local Uhaul to work with you. Ours helped us get new ones, although they are not exact duplicates even though they fit. We do have original Uhaul wheel covers that we won on ebay, but they don't work on the new versions rims. The rims fit but the wheel covers don't fit the new rims.

OK. If the tire clears the wheel well lip, you have enough offset.

Ok I stand corrected. When I bought my spare rim I did not check the off set. I only put the rim on and it fit so I assumed it wold work. I just now went out and tried it on with the wheel on and it just barely fits. So I'm going to have to find one from U-haul as well. Darn good thing Tom pointed this out to me or I could be up that creek with out a paddle if I had a flat. Thanks Tom for questioning me on the off set!!!!!!

if the wheel covers don't fit then you should sell them to us.

Hey Bob, what do you mean by 'wheel covers' ? hubcaps? or the cover that fits over a spare?
