Spare tire

Greetings everyone, I have a 2018 Thor Quantum rw28 which sits on a Ford F450 chassis. I want to buy a spare tire just for peace of mind. My question is, are the dually wheels the same as the front wheels? I don't plan on buying one of each if they are different but having one spare is better than no spare. I know there many RV'ers that have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles without one and never had an issue. But... Thanks in advance for any info.

I have a 22 ft Thor I took off the front wheel cover the Manufacture name is inbossed in it--- i went on the net. called the company bought the exact wheel. " think it was 125.oo then to tire store all done it's inside big cabinets and a 6 ton jack, big socket and long handle breaker bar. and some 2x 6" that i use for leveling any way. might have to run up on them to get jack under,to change wheel.

Thanks. I don't, PLAN, on changing it myself. That's what I pay roadside assistance for. But it probably won't hurt to have the tools to do it.

Wheels would all be the same. Trick is finding a non-OEM spare wheel that fits or spending a bit more for a Ford OEM dually wheel. We picked a Ford OEM dually wheel, wrapped it in matching tire and mounted on a Roadmaster Spare Tire carrier. The Roadmaster setup is a bit spendy but allows ability to use the receiver.

Thanks, good info. I plan on putting the spare in the bed of our toad. A 2002 Mazda b2300. That mounting setup in the pic wouldn't work on my rig. It has a storage door in the back.
