I saw this topic come up in a FB group. While I still have my original unused spare tire in storage, it hasn't been in the car for probably 15 years. I'm just wondering what solutions others have used when they were concerned about needing a spare tire.

Years ago, a 275/40/17 would fit in the rear hatch, but the 315/35/17 did not fit, and I'm sure the 315/30/18's won't fit. If I put a brake kit on the front that requires an 18" wheel, then that will require a larger spare on the front, unless I move a rear tire to the front _and_ mount the smaller spare on the rear. I did drive to LSFest in Kentucky on 275's, with three 315's in the rear seat and the fourth on the front passenger seat. Then there's talk about different tire heights upsetting things like ABS. Definitely not interested in the tire slime solution... are we dependent upon a tow truck?

Looking for a spare set of OEM front LCA's in good condition. I already have the ball joints & bushings so I really only need the bare arms.

I've been searching in vane for either of the following for a set of lug nuts with the new wheels. If you happen to know where I can find them please let me know. I haven't purchased the lug nuts yet so worst case scenario I have to pick a different style. If I can't find it as non-marring, perhaps one can buy the non marring covers separately? Or I could use an existing cover from my existing 17mm 6pt non-marring socket?

1) 17mm 12-point deep non-marring socket
2) 17mm spline drive deep non-marring socket

Stumbled across these on LS1Tech, I don't know anything further about them than what is posted at this link.
