Default Spare tire for 2012 Plug-In

I just discovered (the hard way) I have no spare tire for my 2012 Plug-In Prius. All I know is the rim is for a 185R65/15 tire and has 5 lugs. The Users Manual says the wheel is "15x6J". Any suggestions where I can get a CHEAP used wheel?

Salvage yards.
If it HAS to be cheap, it might not match the other 3.

I just bit the bullet and got new ones. Only $200. I'll probably never use it, BUT I will feel better.
It's a 2012 and I live on a dirt road; looks mean nothing. <grin>
BTW, I bought four junk yard wheels for a previous prius (snow tires) and none fit. Their policy was "'no refund,' but we'll take any junk metal."

Well it seems to me like that was mostly YOUR fault.
