Spare tire thoughts?

I felt dumb when I discovered my truck didn't come with a spare. There's a well for storing it, but no spare.

Since I have to buy one, any thoughts on which wheel I should get? Rivian won't sell me one. I just bought a matching Pirelli tire, but would love a suggestion as to a cheap wheel that would do the job.

The fact that Rivian doesn't make this easy is disappointing. They refuse to tell me what sort of wheel they recommend!

They didn't ask
and no, they won't sell me one.

they say they're working on a 'store'

my first real disappointment with the org
same here! No one asked me! Some obscure email came through in early March '22. I checked my configuration a hundred times, never made a change and never saw a spare tire as an offered "OPTION". Obviously I would have bought it. Imagine you're on your adventure in the Wilderness, be it Moab, Texas, or the Everglades. You pop a tire, can't reinflate, AAA can't or won't service. Let the adventure begin!!!
