Check the date and load range on the tire sidewalls while you are at it.

Something is goofy if it's new and don't match.

Thanks everyone for your input I called the selling dealership they referred to me to the manufacturer I said pictures of the four tires on the trailer and pictures of the spare they contacted me back right away and told me to get the correct tire on the spare and they would reimburse me.

Clearly it wasn't their first report. I wonder how many they will get away with.

I would like to think that it was a mistake and not a common practice

RV dealers and even car/truck dealers have cannibalized one units tires/wheels or just a spare to get a current owner on the road or a make the sale.
Noting was said about the trailer axle ratings or its gvwr so no telling what the actual OEM tire story was for the OP unit.

Off topic, but kind of related; Spare tire on TV. Most people at least look at tires on the ground every day but often do not check the spare. I always air my spare up to max sidewall on the theory it is more likely to have enough when I need it. Yes, I have a compressor, can air up spare. But it is quicker to reduce pressure and over inflated is safer than under inflated.

Good Point ! I do this once a month during tow season..... I learned the HARD way.. had a flat and put a spare on that was under inflated...

I had a Class C with dual rear tires, so I had 6 TST senders. When I sold my Class C and got a dual axle TT, I had 2 senders left over, so I put one on the TT spare and one on the TV spare. I always know if either spare needs air.
