Hello all,

Just bought a truck with no spare wheel/tire. Wondering what I need to buy to hang under the truck in the stock spot. Some pics below.

Thanks for the help!

Presumably you want it to work on either the front or the rear, like the factory one, and the truck is to be used loaded rather than just a driver.

Doesn't leave options.
Both tire and rim need to match what's on the truck so it can be used as a dual.

2500 wheels centre/bolt circle changed with the 2011 MY.
I'm guessing the 3500 duallies might have too?

Might start with wrecking yards?

You might also check for lug nuts coming loose, particularly on the rear wheels. I used to use hub caps on my truck, but several times the lug nuts came loose, and they hid the problem for some time. Now, I torque them down, then retorque after driving around about 25-50 km, then put those plastic arrows on the lug nuts so I can just walk by and know they are tight. I typically rotate my tires 2-3 times a year...
