spare tire details - 20" equipped
Looking for some confirmation on what size and brand spare tire is on JGC equipped with 20" rim.
Reason I ask, is that my vehicle was originally built with the 18" wheels, and dealer swapped the 20's onto my vehicle (with some apparent reprogramming of the vehicle ??) and I want to ensure my spare is the correct one, if it even mattered.

I of course have the 20" rims with Goodyear Fortera's

My spare is an 18" Kuhmo Solus (need to check size).

Any confirmation on 20" factory equipped vehicles would help.

My spare is a 18 inch kumho also, 245/ 65 /18, I have the 20s also.
The diameter is the same or off by less then a few mm. 04-12-2012 04:34 PM

So is the wheel just a black steel wheel?

Yes, the spare tire is a Kumho 18 inch tire with black steel rim.
A 20 inch tire will fit but you will have to take the buckets from the spare tire area to fit it in. I hate loosing those for a bigger tire.

Looks like they found a way to save a few dollars on every JGC. 4-20" made in USA Goodyears and 1-18" made in Vietnam spare.
