1990 M26 Wheel Lug bolt pattern

Hi group

Quick question

Recently I purchased a 1990 M26S with what I think is a the original Mac trailer

Seems to be in great shape accept it has no spair tire.

Pulled it home 440 miles with no prob but want to buy a spair before I pull anyplace else...

I can see it’s a 14 inch tire, and the wheal is 5 lug

But can anyone tell me what type wheel I should look for? Will any common wheels fit? Ford, Chevy, ????

(would be nice if Ford Ranger wheals would fit.... I have a nice set of Mags I could put on ) yea I know... jack it up and try um...

but I thought I would save a little work and ask... what do I need to look for?

I just bought a wheel and tire,, Northern Tool has a reasonable selection, my mac is a 2003 26M,, has 6 lugs on single axle trailer. I used this to get the correct size.


Don’t forget a lug wrench,, I checked all the lug wrenches in the 3 cars we own, none would fit, got a decent folding wrench from Walmart.

Blue Water Yachts May have the answer. It does’nt cost anything to ask.
