Spare for 17 inch Rims

Guys with 17's, I was wondering what do yall do for a spare? Can the stock steelie work with or do yall go another route?

I'm looking into getting some bigger rims and heard someone mention that I should keep my stock rims in case I have a blowout or something since I won't be able to use my stock steelie.

Never ran anything but stock rims, so I just wanted to make sure there wasn't any surprises I should know about.

So basically, what do you wish you had known before lowering your car and/or getting bigger rims?

Re: Spare for 17 inch Rims

If you size your tyres correctly you should be able to use the stock space saver with no dramas. If you're putting it on the front, try not to leave it there too long, the huge weight difference between your 17 on one side and half size spare on the other may cause some issues in the driveline. Course it might not too.

Re: Spare for 17 inch Rims

I was wanting tsx rims, but the offset was just too much at plus55. I didn't want to have the possibility of running the inner fender wall. I had a bad guy feeling on it so I walked away from the deal. It was a good price, but just like clothes, it doesn't matter how good it looks or how cheap it is, if it doesn't fit, its not worth it.

Re: Spare for 17 inch Rims

don't ever put a spare on the front...ever. always on the back...jack it up and put the spare on the back the the back wheel on the front.

Your 17's with tires should share the same overall diameter as your stock wheels and tires, and thus you should have no problem using the originals as a spare.
