Full size spare tire

kind of an odd question

I picked up a used rim+tire for a full sized spare for a trip i have retuning to Toronto from Arizona, I just don't want to be stranded between Albuquerque and Amarillo, its barren desolate country out there,

anyways, can i get the full size spare into the area allotted for the "short distance" spare, looks like its buttoned up nice in there, but i was looking for a permanent home for the "full size"

not sure if anyone has given this a go

thanks

Re: Full size spare tire

I believe a 17 or 18" spare will fit on the tire tray in the trunk. You may need to relocate your tire tools. I just bought a rim recently and am considering buying a used tire (6/32) for it. The other option is to buy a brand new tire and rotate it through each time the tires are rotated. Not sure how the TPMS will work in the trunk on a spare. Will it turn on the low light if the spare goes bad? I plan on keeping the donut in case I get a flat while the bed is full.

I don't know what happens if the spare in the trunk goes flat, but the TPMS automatically picks up the 5th wheel when you introduce it into your rotation.

Edit: Also, you don't have to reset the TPMS or do anything special with the 5th spare, everything happens automatically.

Re: Full size spare tire

There is also a kit to mount the full sized spare in the bed.

Re: Full size spare tire

A full-size spare tire is standard on Ridgelines sold south of the border in Mexico.

See "NEUMÁTICO DE REFACCIÓN," which is spare tire in Spanish.

Re: Full size spare tire

I have a question for the group.

I recently upgraded the spare tire in my Ridgeline by purchasing a refurbish Honda rim and put one of my good tires that I had pulled out of rotation from when I got a flat back in the day. --Since I pull a heavy trailer, I'm more comfortable knowing I have a full-size spare in the trunk (as the manual recommends).-- With the tire kit (a.k.a. the "Tool Box") now sitting on the shelf (above the muffler) in the trunk, I had to move my personal tool bag.

I like having the floor of the trunk empty for my grocery runs, etc. Thus, I'm looking for some sort of tool bag that I can use to put my tire kit, towrope, crescent wrench, etc. that will fit nicely inside the full-size tire's rim so it's all tucked out of the way under the bed.

I saw this photograph of a tough cylindrical bag that appears to have the correct proportions for what I'm after. However, I cannot find it for sale anywhere.


Does anyone have an idea of where I can get a good bag like this with the dimensions I need? I have about 23 liters of space; that's about an eight inch radius with seven inches of height/depth that I can fill with goodies.

Re: Full size spare tire

I did the same, bought a used wheel in great condition from a member here. I put a new OEM tire on it and I'm using it in a 5 tire rotation.

On the tray in the trunk, I've got it laying face up, with the center lock bolt holding it in place. Interesting idea with the cylindrical bag. Does laying the wheel face down scratch it up? Did you get a shorter center lock bolt (can't think of a better name for it)?
