Spare Tire !!

I bought my Shasta 185 FQ new Sept of 2016. Was checking my air pressure in tires this morning and when I took the cover off the spare I seen that although my wheels on my TT are 6 lug, the Stealer put a 5 lug spare on mount on rear bumper. Knowing already that it had been a year since purchasing I still called Stealer witch by the way I had also bought my previous TT and explained the mistake they made. Not to my suprize I was told so sorry Charlie. Moral of this story is check EVERYTHING when going through PDI. 😡😡😡

I would have thought they would provide a wheel with the correct number of lugs. If the tire is the same size just get a steel rim and have it mounted shouldn't cost much. Oh ya you are spot on with check everything

If I see it today, I'll try to grab a pic. I saw an old 60's early 70's Shasta that had been redone. Saw it yesterday about 2 blocks away in a's beautiful. Sorry about your mishap. When we picked up our 2018 Cherokee this spring, there was no spare on it. Salesman tried to say that it was an option on this trailer. There were 3 of the same trailer all sitting together and 2 had spares, the one they prepped for us didn't. We had walked the lot 10 times at least before deciding on the Trailer and every one of them had a spare. There was a spare on mine before we left the lot.
