Spare tire, wrong rim size

I have a 2005 Ranger STX 3.0 liter 4x2. After 8 years of driving I had my first flat tire. The spare matched the hub and hole pattern on the wheel. But after I tightened down the lug nuts the wheel would not turn.Tried to drive it about 50' but decided to call AAA. We pulled the tire off and saw that the rim was rubbing against the brake caliper housing. Had to get towed to Firestone to get the flat fixed. However that leaves me a spare that's anything but.
Does anyone know of the Ford part number for the correct rim and where I could find one without paying Ford prices?
Thanks - DJM
