But seriously, i hate buying new parts for damn criminals.

Did you find anyway to lock it after you put a new one in?
I never bothered to replace it, now I have my full size spare on my tiregate with a 1/2'' thick cable and double HD lock.

Seems like that'd block the easy access to the clip in the middle.

Any welders out there?
haha i wish i could weld, or i woulda already done something like this

Haha... I meant just a spare. $20 shipped? Hahaha... this isnt 1930 lol.

What is stopping you from fabricating your own wire and stuff. shouldnt be no more than $15 for a bit of wire and misc clamps .

Re: Spare Tire Stolen.. Opinions?

I also live in Chicago and had my spare stolen from my 2010 WK. Those bastards cut the cable right off!

I am now in need of a new one and wanted to ask if anyone has a spare they are willing to sell. Mine is the 17" with 6 spoke style. Please let me know.
