Source for a spare tire for C43

I keep having problems with tires and rims on my 2017 C43.
Most recently, it's been a cracked rim on one of front wheels.
While I do have insurance, getting it changed/repaired is a monumental pain as it takes days to fix,there is no spare, and all local dealership's loaner are booked out for weeks.
I tried to find a spare online but can't seem to find the right size, and the local tire shops have not been much help either.
I am sure someone has bought a spare rim and tire to keep in the garage in an emergency - I'd greatly appreciate if you could share the source or gave the size that would fit.
Thanks!!

C43 Coupe
Im also looking for a spare tire since i hit a pot hole and blew my tire with a huge 3in gash on the sidewall. Knew it was coming bc 3/4 of my tires were slowly leaking air for a while now even tho i only have 12k miles.

Dealer

You could order a spare rim and tire from the dealer or order rims from the numerous posts here re upgraded rims. Lots of people have upgraded to non run flats such as Michelin’s

just a question are your rims 19”
several threads suggest 18” are more durable

the rims are 18'.
Would the spare rim and tire from a dealer be a brand new identical rim? Seems ludicrous to pay $1000 for a spare, but I don't know that I have any other choice!
