Where can I get a matching 5th wheel?

I've got an 84 CJ-7 with what I think are original stock steel wheels. When I bought my Jeep, PO did not have a 5th spare wheel, just a donut which is pretty much only useful as a bumper.

I'm looking to just get a matching 5th wheel to use as my spare. Anyone have a *specific* recommendation as to where I could get one? I live in New York City now and I'm not familiar with any junkyard parts places or anything around here, which I would think might be the best bet. Maybe somewhere that will ship to me?

thanks,
Chris

Here's a pic of one of my wheels.

Those are just white wagon spoke wheels. You should be able to get them at any parts/tire store for about $30 per wheel.

Thanks- I never see these around so I assumed they would be hard to get at the local tire store. I'll check it out.

those are not standard wagon wheels. they are cj specific.

if you look long enough, you should be able to find one. i'll look this weekend to see if i have one. i have a bunch of the jeep centercaps also if you need them.

Great Matt !
I need a centercap like that one for the front wheel on a 81 CJ. How can I make arrangements with you?
