I found a website that gives you the lug patterns for cars so then you can find all that match. Other factors i looked at was the age, size and load capacity of the donut. It took a lot of research to find the right one at the right price.

Here is how the ugly donut looks like on. In my case it is about 1.5" lower.

I agree with the statement of being careful how old the donut is. I will feel comfortable if it is up to 10 yeards old. Probably 15 if never used. Tires can degrade from the inside out due to the oxygen in the air oxidizing the rubber.20170505_002208.thumb.jpeg.f87bfff51236adf55ba2810e0eac0796.jpeg

With the rear seats all but useless for me I went this route with a near full size.

A simple photo attachment is lost here compared to any other forum I am on. Why be different?

So if your rear goes flat you have to move the front to the rear and then place the spare in the front.

In the midst of the obligatory hurricane in the middle of a moonless night on a steeply banked hill on the interstate with very narrow shoulders and a totally uneven surface...? You know if it is needed those will be the conditions!
