Post subject:  Wanted: Hi-rail Spare Tire

I recently purchased a hi-rail truck that came without a spare, and have been unable so far to find the right sized rim to mount a spare to. So I am looking for an 8 lug, 19.5" x 6" rim with or without an 8R-19.5 tire mounted to it. If you have one available, I am most interested.

Hi Rick I think we have three of those wheels at MRPS in Cleveland. They are 19.5" with a 5" center hole, 8 bolt pattern with at least a 5/8' stud size, 6.5' center to center for the studs. They have 8X19.5 8 ply heavy lug snow tires mounted on them. I am told that they came from a hi railer that has since been scrapped.
