Is this wheel for full-sized spare?

I used the online search structure to find the Trailhawk steel spare wheel (rim). At the end I get this part:

4726258AA

It is the only spare tire rim offered for the trailhawk. What disturbs me is that the rim is described as "ccompact." The trailhawk takes a full-sized spare.

Is this the correct part?

This part: 4726429AA

looks more like it.

The steel THawk wheel is full size. I bought an THawk oem aluminum wheel and switched the Firestone a/t tire to it so I can rotate 5 tires. The steel wheel is for sale cheap if you are anywhere near me. It is too darned heavy to ship. - Ted

The wheel/tire I have in my TH spare is full-size (and I had to use it within a month of buying the car), but I'm not convinced what mopar says is the TH spare steel wheel is correct.

I live a long way from BC!

By the way, how often do you rotate tires? My Duelers already have 6000 fairly rough miles on them, and I'm not sure they are that close to new"... but I've thought about doing he same thing.

I got in touch with Moparonlineparts by e-mail, and they told me I really wanted part 4726430AA. Nowhere is that IDed as a Trailhawk-compatible rim, but it's cheap, and it's what the expert told me I wanted. If you burrow down through the menus, selecting 2014 Trailhawk, etc, all sites give you the rim for a compact spare -- which no trailhawk has. Maybe this all makes sense to Mopar, but it sure doesn't make sense to me.

Why not just buy a steel wheel the same size? Does it have to be from Mopar?
