So I ordered a spare tire bracket, Ounyoizs brand, for the trailer from Amazon. Appeared fairly well made and it actually is. However the bolts they give you to mount the spare are 10x1.50 thread. Noone makes a lug nut that size.
I ended up drilling out the 2 mounting holes I would need and welded in 2 7/16 20 wheel studs. This of course burned off the powder coat so I had to repaint it.
Terrible engineering. Why would they not provide standard bolts or at least a lug nut to fit. 🤦‍♂️

Thanks guys but it's done now. Only need 2.
Also the bolts were 4.5 inches long. Would have to be cut down. Just doesn't make sense why they do what they do sometimes.
