2001 Adventurer Spare Tire

I need to get a spare tire with rim for my 2001 Adventurer 35U. The problem is that no one can tell me what rim width I need. The width should be between 6.75 -7.50 inches, 19.5 size with 245/70/19.5 tire. It is a Workhorse chassis. I have called both Winnebago, and Workhorse, they cannot seem to tell me. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

Bayou Dude,
About 99.9% of the time, most wheels have their size and specs stamped on the outside of the wheel someplace. If you have alloys, you should be able to see it right out in the open. If you have steel wheels and, "liners" or hub caps of some sort, you most likely will have to remove the liners to find the stamping. I can't believe the MFG could not assist you in this matter. Anyway, good luck
Scott

The industry standard minimum rim width for a 245/70R19.5 tire is 6.75". That's what my Ford has. I guess it doesn't mean your Workhorse could be wider...sorry.

But, I found your answer here. Page 149.

19.5x6.75 if it's steel. I think, you should double check I assume you have a W20?

My question is where are you going to store/mount the spare?

I had a 2003 35U and the spare was too big to mount underneath between the rails. And it was too heavy to store under the bed.

We ended up buying a tire alone with no rim and storing it under the bed.

We'll wait and see what the OP is say's he'll do with his new spare. But, the subject of where to haul a spare tire and wheel or, just a tire, has been on here just a few times before. Many friends have used the existing trailer hitch to mount the spare on a "saddle" type mount that still allows the use of hitch for towing. It works pretty cool, not too hard to get the tire/wheel combo up there and down when needed, and all that's needed is a cover to protect it from the elements. Just an idea here (for the OP).

my workhorse chassis manual book, page 33, has the following info:
w series 20,700 and 22000# 19.5X6.75'' steel wh pn# w002404, mfg maxion, weight rating 5000#.

because the wheel and tire assy. weighs about 150#. i decided to carry an unmounted spare which weighs about half that.
i was planning on carrying my unmounted spare in the rear behind the fuel tank inside a plastic bag.
my tire would not fit between the frame rails behind my fuel tank.
i carry my unmounted spare tire in my storage compartment just behind the entry door.
the tire fits on the shelf that holds the water tank. i added Styrofoam between the tire and the water tank.
i built a holding system for the ob side from a 2x2 and home hurricane brackets and s hooks. i use a ratchet strap to hold the tire in place.
i carry spare parts inside of the tire, so the space in not wasted.
i have pics of this installation.

Our 2001 Adventurer came with a spare tire and wheel assembly. It's stored in an OEM fold down rack between the frame rails just forward of the trailer hitch.

My 2002 Itasca suncruiser 35U also has the swing down spare tire rack and mine is a workhorse W20 with the 19.5 tires. The adventurer and the suncruiser are supose to be the same so I am not sure why yours shouldn't fit under the motorhome. I know mine does not have much outside storage since it has the basement air so I am glad it stores under because it would really cut my storage. there is only one bin that tire could be stored in.

Need to know WHICH workhorse chassis you are asking about, but.......

According to the Workhorse chassis guide, the P32 chassis with GVWR of 15,000 thru 18,000 pounds used steel wheels size 19.5 X 6.00

The W-20 and W-22 chassis used steel wheels 19.5 X 6.75 and the 22.5 wheels are also 6.75" wide

IF you have ALUMINIUM wheels they are 19.5 X 7.50 OR 22.5 X 7.50
