And I paid $70 at a truck junk yard for an E450 rim. plus clean up and spray paint. Free shipping would help.

I carried mine on a Roadmaster 195225. It’s pretty expensive (over $500) but it’s beautifully made and will outlast several rigs. Among its features are that you can still use your hitch for other things and you never have to lift your wheel. They can be pretty heavy if you have 19.5 inch wheels. I chose NOT to carry the tools to change a tire. Seems sort of counterintuitive but I figured roadside assistance outdoor do the work but the rescue would be much faster and more satisfactory if I already had the spare. Having to buy a tire on the road means towing, paying inflated prices, “choosing” whatever is available and waiting until stores are open or for shipping if nothing is in stock or if you need a wheel and not just a tire.
I am planning to carry the tire only in our TOAD. I too, will leave it to roadside assistance to do the actual tire change. However, when I get the time I am going to attempt a mount similar to the one in the link below.
