I am going to add a second spare tire and I was quoted $174 for a direct replacement from factory of what is on my trailer now.

That is ridiculous if you ask me. A quick search came up with these for $56 each.
https://www.discounttire.com/buy-wheels/liquid-metal-supreme-hd

Am I missing something as far as quality or specifications that justifies the $174 price from the dealer?

Or is it ok, and smarter, to just go with a new wheel at a better price?

Shopping on price alone is not wise, there are a lot of unsafe cheap tires out there. Go with a quality brand from a reputable tire dealer, the rv and auto dealers are generally the highest.

It should be fine, especially as a second spare.

Your title says you are looking for a wheel. Your post says tire. If wheel/rim look at the inside of your current wheels. You should see something stamped in it stating max inflation value. Make sure that matches on the new one also.

Yes, in general, same diameter, width, bolt pattern and offset, most of which are standard for trailer wheels, will work.
You will need to wade through the multitude of responses that are overthinking it. As many of the folks here only have limited, recreational experience with trailers and do not fully understand, and therefore are basing much of their knowledge off of very limited experience.

Subjectively, unless the second spare is just so you can sleep better at night, fix the issue that is making a second spare tire seem like a necessity.

If you want to use a $56 wheel/tire or whatever you can. Hopefully I won't be behind you or coming in the opposite direction.

Grand Design wants to sell you a spare tire and discount tire wants to sell you a rim, not the same thing.
