f53 spare wheel and tire

In the process of putting together a spare wheel and spare tire for my F53.

Need some feedback...

Specs in Ford manual show the following:

Tire size: 245/70R 19.5
Wheel size:19.5 x 6.75
Lugs: 10

I see a few wheels on Amazon with the following size: 19.5 x 6. https://www.amazon.com/Dually-19-5x6...6+wheel+10+lug

Wheel a slightly less narrow wheel be a major issue?

Thanks fellas.

I was told by 3 tire shops that the 245/70R 19.5 tires require the 6.75 wide rim. The 6 inch rims are for 225 wide tires. The 6 inch wide rims are easier to find and cheaper.

If your only are using it as a spare I don't think the rim width really

I only carry the spare tire not mounted to a rim and when I did get a
blow out the tire shop was able to just remount the spare tire onto
my rim.

Your results may vary.
