Bill, good idea!!! Hopefully we can get something to work. In the meantime, I think it'd be good to remind everyone to check their current spare tire for its pressure! I'm sure there will be lots of road trips coming up and you'd hate to pull out your spare and have it with only 19psi when it'* supposed to be 60
I caught mine before I actually needed it but I think it'd be good to bring this up again - especially for those of us who don't have a compressor in the car

This reminds me, I was thinking. If you only need it for long trips, why not just throw a full size in the trunk, and take it out when you get back, and then use the space-saver for everyday use?

You can get four fullsize tires in a Bonneville trunk with room to spare as well.

Just not in the spare tire well. I had my doubts about this when the idea was originally posted.

If you are like me.... The trunk will have 2 or 3 suit cases... All of the essential fluids in a milk crate, with a Back up PCM... 2 tool boxes.... Lucky to get the trunk lid to shut... Then on the inside the personl duffel bag or what ever you want to call it... A cooler full of ice, sodas and goodies to keep the driver ( Me ) Happy... Among other crapp that I will take to the family when I am up there... On the last trip I had to keep the air struts at 30 psi to keep her level

So where do I put the tire..

Contents of my trunk? Essential fluids and basic tools in one milk crate. Jumper cables and inflator hose in the other. Cargo bar holds them forward, and 2 gallons of Toluene between.
