Thanks all for the responses.
I've been looking for an identical rim but no one here(none of the 15+ used tire shops, junk yards, salvage yards, "reclaimed metal" yards, etc) have them any of the dozens of times I've tried stopping in. The few places that actually manage to get that style of rim, they tend to sell them off same day or next day of getting them in. It's one of their very high demand jeep parts. Online, I can get one for around $100. Just some random steelie rim is a second choice so I can have a fullsized spare, but I'm still looking for another 'teardrop' (thanks for that!) styled rim. Honestly, anything is better than that crappy doughnut they give ya. If it's that much of an emergency, i'll just say screw the rim and drive on a flat tire. AAA is for the minor stuff!
I never meant that the 249 was bad, I love it, I just know that it tends to be very touchy to even slight differences between tires. My question was more about if different backspacing on just the one tire would cause a similar reaction as having slightly different sized tires, due to a slightly different axle to tire edge length. I'm used to some of the dumb questions being the most important ones that weren't asked so figured what the heck, lol.
