Why not Google: 6 lug Alcoa wheel? I just did and got quite a few returns.
All kinds at a bunch of different prices.
Just make sure of your rim size.

Often truck tire shops will have used ones from when the trucks go to oversized wheels.

I believe that the axle load capacity is directly linked to the wheel bolt size and number, my ORED V917 chassis is 9,000 lbs front axle and 17,000 lbs for the rear with 10 bolt. If memory serves the 225 is limited to 7,000 and 15,000 and 6 bolts with that being the case I’m not sure if a hardware swap is possible. IMHO

Blacklidge, not sure of what you are trying to accomplish--but if you are thinking of putting adapters on the 6 lug and turning it into a 10 lug "DONT". the bearings are not made to carry the extra leverage of the wheel sticking out further.  I did a lot of research on a previous MH and found out that was a bad idea.
Just my 2 cents worth

Not really enough information to make an informed suggestion.  We really need to know which model you own and possibly which chassis.  Very old Foretravels were built on Chevrolet P30 chassis.  And I can only hope that Foretravel used suitable axles to support the weight.  Many SOB did not and everything was overloaded empty.

There are at least two truck chassis that were used, and of course Foretravel built their own Unihome chassis.  After owning a SOB on a P30 chassis we're very happy with our U225 and the head-room left weight wise for our stuff.  If WE needed a new Alcon wheel, and couldn't find a good used wheel we'd go ahead and purchase a new wheel.  Given that there is no way of knowing why the used wheel was available we'd be inclined toward a new wheel.

From his earlier post.

BTW, the PN is stamped into the wheels.  U225 and U240 use the same 6.75X22.5" rims. And, at least on the 1993 U240, all 6 wheels are aluminum.

You're 6-lug wheel also needs to match the nuts already on your U225.  Some have a chamfer while the others have a spherical radius and you can't mix them.
