    You know it's an aftermarket wheel. You can measure it and get a matching wheel, even if it's not an exact match. The rim width is between the inner sealing surfaces of the wheel - you can measure the rim width with a couple of sticks across the wheel and a ruler through the center hole. You'll also need the backspacing, which you can measure from the inner rim to the wheel mounting surface (WMS). Then go to Summi, put in your measurements and see what comes up.

    Couple of possibilities here, assuming you have an 8" rim width. https://www.summitracing.com/search...5+4294920825+4294920322+4294915418+4294920791 3.5" or 3.75" backspacing is typical of Jeep wheels.

    Thanks a lot! If possible, I would like to have a spare similar to what I have. The radical option is to get a different set of five rims/tires altogether. My tires need changing soon!

    Lots of companies made rims similar to that in the 70s and 80s. Mine look just like those but they are now black. You might look at the back to see if there are any markings. Mine were off-brand JC Whitney specials 30+ years ago.

    You have generic aftermarket wagon wheels. These can usually be found at the U-Pull yards in the truck section. These are commonly found on older (1980s) Ford pickups. If you have Warn hubs up front, you need to measure the center hole to make sure it fits over the hub, 4 1/8" or 4 1/4" diameter.
    Where do you expect to mount the spare? If in the stock location on the right/rear quarter panel, you will need a stock width rim, and even that likely won't clear a 7" or 8" wide rear rim on the axle.
    The LKQ Medley yard up on 74th just west of the Palmetto often have old Ford trucks.

    Usually, an F150 pickup, better yet, 4wd. You need to verify that they are 5 lug by 5. 1/2" pattern. You can check inventory on-line at LKQ. There are a couple other yards within a block or two west. At these, It helps if you are fluent in spanish, which I am not.

    Be careful buying Ford wheels. Stock Ford wheels won't fit over a Jeep front hub, the center hole is smaller. Measure and compare!
