Need new wheel/advice on full size spare/speedometer adjustment questions?

Howdy all,

Recently I put on Goodyear Duratrac 275/65R18's on my 2014 Overland.
I just noticed after a thorough hand wash this morning that the tire shop marred the left front driver's wheel with several dents/scratches. Barring being able to get the wheel repaired, I was wondering what exactly to order as a replacement. I have the ORA II package, that comes with the 18" x 8" polished aluminum wheels. If anyone knows the part # or can refer me to a web site that has them, much appreciated.

What do you guys recommend I could use as a full size spare and still get the cargo cover to close? The tire doesn't have to be quite as wide, but not sure what size tire to order to work with the current 275/65R18's.

Lastly I wonder if I can have the Jeep reprogrammed for my current tire size - so that my odometer and the speedometer are more accurate.

Thanks for any help.

275/65-18 is 32.1x11, so look at a 255/70r18 (32.1x10.2) for the spare.
