Is there room to replace the full size (18") steel wheel spare in our JGC, with the spare tire mounted on the stock 18" aluminum wheel?
And do the storage bins fit back OK?
I haven't bought our JGC yet but I prefer to have a spare that has the stock aluminum wheels, rather than a chintzy steel spare
This way, I can look around on Ebay to see if I can pick one up. I did exactly the same for our Kia Optima. We discovered that we could use a full size OEM alloy provided we removed some rubber spacers the factory stuck to the wheel well floor.
FYI - We also had a "group buy" on the Optima Forum where we negotiated with an Ebay seller who had a set of 4 for sale. We did 4 different transactions with him and he split them up and then mailed each wheel out to the 4 different owners.
