Good idea, unless the spare tires are older than 6 years old. Rubber dries out and is prone to cracking, particularly when sitting someplace for 6 years. Do a google on tire shelf life and it may open you eyes.

I bought two new aftermarket headlight assemblies off Rock Auto today for my 01 Bonneville. Cost with shipping and discount was $230 for the pair, which is as good as I have seen. Once I have them on I want to play around with taking my old ones apart and cleaning the lenses from the inside. The lenses are all hazed/fogged over but the headlight cleaner kits have no effect because the problem is on the inside of the lens. If they look good, I will either sell them or convert them to projectors and sell the new ones.

I'm fine these trucks are only 2 years old and these tires have the same date as the ones that I replaced.

What does the iphone have to do with "What did you do with your car/truck? LOL

The fact that you used the track to transport the Iphone? I guess you would need to strap that thing down to bed to transport it.
