Spare wheel machined by chassis

My spare wheel tire side is dead, grooved in three places.
I will try to put some wood board and rubber between chassis and the tire.

Have someone experienced it or is there something missing on my assembly?

Re: Spare wheel machined by chassis

i had his happen on my durango. i ended up turning the tire over so that the inside of the rim is against the underside of the vehicle. i also put some foam between the wheel and the undercarriage. now the issue is that the outside of the rim could get dinged up by gravel. anyway i've done the same with my wk as soon as i bought it.
