Can't find reasonable source for F-53 wheel/rim 19.5x6.75 10x225

I just picked up '19 A.C.E. 32.1
It sits on an F-53 chassis.
It comes with a 245/70r19.5 tire, mounted on a 19.5x6.75 wheel with a 10 bolt, 225mm pattern.

I'm having a hell of a time locating the wheel.
Tires are somewhat plentiful, but it seems like no one in my state has the wheel except for a Ford dealer at a cost of $848.20 (wheel only, part#1015)

So my question is this: am I going to have a time of my life trying to find a replacement tire if I have a blowout?

I'm trying to research the viability of just getting a spare tire.
And all this running around makes me think that in an emergency like stuck at 9PM on a Friday night, on a side of a highway somewhere in Missouri, I don't want to spend 2 days finding this thing.

Might cost some shipping but cheaper than what you found:

Thank you. I've messaged the seller.
One of the shops said that they can get one but need to confirm availability and price.
The point is that if I was on the side of the road right now, I don't know what my options would be.

Here is a thought: Can ALL mobile trucks swap tires? Would I have an option for them to bring rather plentifully available 225/70r19.5 tire and swap in onto my rim, provided the rim didn't get destroyed during the blowout?
Or, if I carried just the tire, could they swap it for me on a side of the road?
I know that's common with big rigs where you have 2 part rims, but not sure about singles.

Midwest Tire And Wheel has them online for $259 (product # 19502). But it costs another $55 for shipping. At least to Indiana.

I left a message for the above listing but have not heard anything. I am wondering if the recent log in changes are somehow involved as I have had issues logging in a number of times since the changes went into effect.

Yes the mobile tire techs can swap your unmount spare on to a undamaged wheel. If you can find a low cost spare go for it. Wrap in with the heavy shipping clear plastic cling wrap to seal it up which will help extend the tires life. Under the bed, if it fits, is a good storage area.

If you want to good all in a mounted 19.5" spare will fit between the frame rails behind the fuel tank. You need to rig up some way to hold it in place until the day comes to use it. Just keep it wrapped or it will slowly rot and be useless when the day comes that you need it.

I've heard back from the seller. He doesn't want to ship it due to the 80 lb weight
