Is it OK to use a standard ( less wide) rim on a spare tire when your Trailblazer has 17'' ones ? I'm having a lot of trouble locating a spare rim.
I have an 06 Trailblazer with 17" rims that came with no spare (bought it used). Called all
the junkyards & nobody has a fit for a spare. A friend said I could use a smaller rim & tire
just like a doughnut, to get to a repair spot.
buy a real rim and tire and figure out a way to stow it on board, then you'll have a real spare tire that you can actually drive on for more than a block
Thanks,Chassy. I plan on buying a real rim & tire ...to clarify my question, is it OK if the rim & tire are narrower: eg. 16 in instead of 17 in width.
buy one that matches the other 4 [ in every way [
