Re: R18 Spare Tire with R20 Tires Installed

Sorry redrockv8....I could not see where to edit the post to correct "warp" to WRAP. I used a heavy cloth bag to enclose the jack and placed it under the rim so it does not rattle or hit the rim.

Re: Oversized spare tire for GCs with bigger tires

That is odd. The OEM retainer I used to extend does not hit my cover......
The OEM retainer is kinda cupped to fit down into the center hole and not protrude.

Re: R18 Spare Tire with R20 Tires Installed

Actually the stock 20" do fit in the spare tire well. But you need to reverse the rim to permit the lid to close. This requires a longer spare tire hold down bolt and you need to warp the jack and...
