spare tire placement ...

Im going to run duals, like the SRT8 coming out the middle, but the problem is my spare tire... I live in alaska and if I"m driving 400 miles plus to fish, and i have a blow out I'm screwed....so tossing the tire in garage isn't an option. Has any one seen the spare underneath the storage compartment in the back like most saddens??? is their any room???

Re: spare tire placement ...

Could you use run flats and just carry the spare in the trunk for longer trips?

Re: spare tire placement ...

I'm in the same boat, but for a different reason. My spare is too big to fit in the stock location. I'm gonna do something about it come spring - going to build something into the cargo area so I can have my 2 12's and amp and my spare back there at the same time.

Re: spare tire placement ...

I had mine out, It fits fine sitting flat in the rear storage compartment.

The other option is get a roof basket like the rola rack sold on 4xguar.com s site. then toss the tire in that and strap it down or buy the kit to latch it down properly.

If you dont do that and put it on the stock cross bars from the roof rack, make sure that you put it on the cross bars not the roof itself, put the cross bars so each bar is under the lip of the wheel/tire. Then strap it down with good ratchet straps weaving the strap through the spokes of the wheel and roof rack. Strap the tire wheel face down not up.
