So thatís good advise on the spare rim. I got mine at wheelsnowinc as well $144 and arrived in 3 days.
The tire... ouch. Shop around, first I wanted my tires to match...itís just a thing, move on- so typically I was finding prices of $650.
. I shopped and got a new (6 months old) matching Goodyear tire for $430. I had the tire shop give me the tire codes so I could see how long theyíve been sitting around. One of his was almost 2 yrs old. I donít want that one.
. Mounted and balanced for $40 at my local heavy truck shop.
That combination is almost 150lbs. Even separately the UPS guy was not thrilled with my purchases.
. Now youíll need to carry it and recall itís heavy. So youíll need the Roadmaster hitch carrier. It makes the rim/tire effortless to mount and un-mount. The cost is a bit painful at about $600.
