Spare-spare tire wanted

Hey all. I'm getting ready to head next month out on about a 4K mile trip to AK. I see that blow-outs are somewhat of a concern with TTs, and with the space between repair facilities along this route, I think it would be smart to have an additional spare tire/rim to carry along should I happen lose both tires at once. Anyone know what it is I need to ask for (lug pattern etc), or where to find one?

Check out this thread, you'll find most trailers use the same wheel, tires and load ratings change.

i bought a couple spares from a tuck and trailer supply house locally. the tire was already mounted (new).
decided to get an extra spare after having 2 flats within 15 min of each other just east of Little Rock. took abt an hour to locate someone to come out and they had to locate a tire. whole ordeal lasted 3 hrs.
