Or maybe (if they do match up), offer the guy fifty bucks to give you your tire and rim back before you call the cops! See how he reacts to that offer.

New Jeep Rubicon spare tire and wheel

brightsidememe Already met up with a guy, that wasn't mine. He wasn't driving the Jeep though so that was kinda questionable

fccwpe Just got my McGard locking lugs today.
12-05-2013 05:48 PM
fccwpe I just left Perris for the high desert cause it was getting bad. I feel for ya though. Couple years ago my house in perris got robbed and I lost 6 firearms, game consoles, and a computer. I felt violated.

XJ_Phil I left Mo Valley about 25 years ago because it was getting so - you know!

Or at least makes it a little tougher job than just changing a tire from yours to theirs

XJ_Phil Since it was a "stock" tire and rim, you may be able to find one at the boneyard too. Call around!

Timberline Had the same thing happen to mine last year. Good news was that I still had the stock spare on it...lol I replaced with the matching 32 and also have 3 locking lug nuts and a cable lock securing it on there!! Just sucked having to buy a new rim and tire. They could have at least left my old lug nuts that were holding it on there...uugghhh
12-05-2013 08:57 AM
brightsidememe Just bought a set on Amazon
12-04-2013 06:17 PM
HappyJKU Bummer! I put the locking nuts on right after I got the Jeep.
12-04-2013 05:56 PM
Kiriesh Sadly this happens often. If you havent put on locking nuts yet I'd do that.

So someone stole my spare tire this morning. I live in Moreno Valley CA. I have a 2013 Rubicon with the new style wheels. If anyone sees one for sale on Craigslist or local please let me know.
