What is the Rim-Wheel size (bore size) used on 2005 PT?
« on: August 02, 2019, 04:18:14 PM »
I'm planning to buy a "used" tire (wheel and tire) to be used as a spare.

I will need a steel wheel, 22.5 x 8.25" wide. 10 hole with 285.75mm stud spacing (M22 x 1.5 studs). Hub-Piloted.

I think it is a 220mm bore size.  Can anyone confirm that these specs are correct for my 2005 PT?

This is what I planning to buy:

I'm posting back to confirm that the wheel bore size is 220 mm.

In case anyone is ever looking for a new wheel and comes across this thread. The wheel dimensions above are correct (for either steel or aluminum wheels) for the 2005 Beaver PT.

The compartment on roadside just before the wetbay has a 60" wide swing-up door (tire is 41"). I'll slip in there and stack my supplies on top.

I thought about that Bill.
But I have plenty of room in the basement. No shortage of space on these coaches. And storing it in the basement will keep it clean and out of the sun.

I just need to be careful that I don't muck up the outer edge of the compartment floor sliding it in/out. I give that some more thought.

Plus, once I get the spare, that will practically guarantee me I'll never get a flat.  ;D
But if I do get a flat, I carry the tools to change it - or I can call my Road Service contract and let them install it (and I wont get stuck buying a tire, or tire and wheel, at an inflated price).
