*Check Your Spare Tire*

Have you checked your spare tire lately ?

I have owned a trailer for more than 12 years and never needed a spare tire until now.

Thought no problem will just put the spare tire on. Took it out of the tire carrier and got ready to install it only to find out it was the wrong rim bolt hole pattern.

Had always checked air pressure before trips but never noticed it was a 8 hole bolt pattern instead of a 6 hole bolt pattern. Same brand, tire size and manufacture date.

It came that way from the factory mounted on the wrong rim !

The lesson for today is if you have not tried it, it may not fit when you need it the most !
