72 Cutlass - 15x7 Spare Tire Rim questions

I have a 1972 Cutlass Supreme that now has new 15x7 Olds SS1 rims, and front disc brakes.
I am looking for a 15" spare tire rim or recommendations on what I could use thats budget friendly. I've been looking for just an older 5x4.75 bolt patterm steel wheel on Craigslist in my area, but they seem to be rare as hens teeth. Any suggestions?
Would one of these older (1960's / 70's) 15" steel wheels work if I have front disc brakes?
Thanks for any input,
Doug in NC

if you are on a budget and don't care if it matches look for a late 70s SSIII 15 x 7 with a snap-on center cap - it will work fine as a spare.

Thanks Steven. Great suggestion. I'll keep an eye out for one of those.

Your best bet is to find a 15x6 or 15x7 wheel from a 1977-1990 B-body with the small (5x4.75) bolt pattern.

Thanks Joe. I was reading through a lot of old posts last night in different forums. You really know your stuff. You're lucky I don't live a bit closer to you or I would be showing up on your doorstep looking for help. LOL.
Have a great week.
