My spare got stolen today

&^%*!
It was on my brain to lock that spare up too. Damn!
My coworker found my lugnuts in my parking spot when I left for lunch today. My office is near Baseline and Rural. The parking lot isn't really visible from the building
Dirtbags are all over the place
Good thing is the tire was pretty ripe from constant sun and I did not have it replaced when I got new treads put on last month. .
I'm going to put a nice message in my window and leave it there for a while with a video camera pointed at my jeep. I'm sure these Dbags come around often.
Now to find a rim and locknuts.

Sucks to be ripped off. What size rim do you need? I have a Jeep Ravine 15X8 rim in storage.

The other nice thing about running stock rims is that there are dozens all over CL. I was able to pick one up very close by for a 50. So I guess if I ever tweak a rim on the trail I won't have to worry about shelling out mucho dinero for a replacement. Got a new tire mounted today and I'm rollin' out for a ride Saturday. Can't wait. I'll be leaving my spare in the garage from now on unless I plan on using 4L. And locklugs are in place. Going to look into those gorilla nuts as well...teehee.
Happy trails...

Just my 2 cents, but I would never leave my spare home!

Check out my spare tire lock

Just put this on since I got bigger tires. The whole unit was under $200 but it is worth it when you have larger, heavier and pricey tires and wheels. Notice I have a case hardened lock on it which prevents anyone from turning the large screw to take the tire off. No need for Gorilla locks, etc. I got this unit directly from my Jeep dealership.

Stop in at any Discount Tire shop. They carry Gorilla and while they may have to order them, Discount has great service.
