Just purchased 2018 X-Lite 197BH - no spare tire?

Just realized there is no spare tire on my brand new X-Lite. Would like to buy one and mount it somewhere, but my dealer can't seem to tell me what size and bolt pattern wheel I need. I emailed Forest River through their "Contact Us" page as well. Does anyone know where I can find this info? Would like to get a spare ASAP...

A reputable tire shop or trailer supply should be able to help you. The spare should be the same size as the ones on the axle.

We bought a 2017 196BH and after getting it home I realized the same thing. I thought the dealer just forgot it. After I called and found out it didn't come with it. I looked at the tires on the axle and searched for a spare. I believe, so don't hold this as gospel, that the tire is a 225/75R15 and a 6 lug. Like I said though, I am not positive about that. That was on the one we bought. I could get it for about $110 through Amazon, but I called an automotive shop down the road from my house and they could have it delivered the next day for $118. So, I went that route. Guaranteed delivery and helping a local business for $8. I felt better about that. So, check around locally.

My tires are 205/75/15 Carlisle ST's. I've been reading a bunch of horrible reviews on how bad these made in China tires are (folks on RV forums call them "china bombs") so will be switching them out soon and keeping one as a spare. Would like to switch to an LT tire, but having trouble finding anything made in the USA in this size, but will keep looking.
