2018 Freedom Elite wheel

I need a wheel for spare tire for my 2018 Freedom Elite. What is the correct size or spec for this wheel?

I am assuming your asking about the Ford Chassis and not the Sprinter. 16X6 8 lugs, 6.5 inch bolt pattern for the Ford E350 and E450. Before taking the plunge, give some thought to where you are going to store it with the tire mounted. Some who don't have the spare will only carry a spare tire not mounted. Others totally rely on roadside service.

I might suggest that you look at the mount that I manufactured to mount our spare. You can find the under “Spare Tires”. Being old school, I don’t leave the driveway without a spare.

I started with a cardboard pattern, mounted to some light strip, attached a hinge and slip pin. I wanted to prove concept with light material. The tire on our 25.2 needed to be moved to PS to miss a wire bundle coming through the floor and be PS of receiver.
Material is 1/4 X 3 mild steel
1” square X 1/8 steel tube
3/4 square steel bar
3 inch Heavy duty hinge
Welded the square tubing to ends, square stock slides out to secure. Milled slots in side of tube to accept slide bolts. Drilled and tapped square bar, using 1/4 bolts with nut to lock slide in place.
You get the idea.

Not quite clear. Any photos of the finished product?
