How do most of you deal with absense of the spare?

Do you just go without it or get some kind of a smaller wheel that will fit in the spare tire compartment (I assume there is still a compartment)?

Sorry for newbie question, I just don't know much about daily use of SRT-8

Crestwood1001 is an unknown quantity at this point
Well I don't have an srt, but my tires are to big to fit a spare under my wk so I carry it in the back, but if I need the cargo space and I take it out... That's why I pay for AAA lol

Comes with run flats and they all come with a spare as mentioned above.... not much else you should need.

I was thinking the same thing.... What did the wk1 have? I remember a panel flipping open on the WK1 and there was a finished storage compartment under there or something.

Re: How do most of you deal with absense of the spare?

All the WK1 had the reversible section in the floor with a compartment under it. The non-SRT's had the spare under the rear cargo floor (under the Jeep), the SRT did not have a spare due to the routing of the exhaust.

Re: How do most of you deal with absense of the spare?

I was under impression that it doesn't come with a spare because it doesn't fit (similar to WK I)

Nope. It most certainly does come with a spare.

255/75/17 KM1 fits under the WK1, so why don't your 255/70/17 A/T fit?
