[DML] Re: Spare Tire (Aftermarket Rim)

The donor vehicle was a late model Chrysler product of some ilk (like
a Stealth or something). Of all the vehicles I checked, only Chrysler
used our 4" square bolt pattern. Unfortunately Chrysler also seemed to
only use 14" factory rims. I of course needed a 15" rim. Eventually
the above vehicle was located with aftermarket 15" rims -- right combo
of diameter and bolt pattern! The rim is standard 8" width, so a real
(versus donut) 195/50R15 tire fits it and the spare tire well. I've
uploaded a picture of my spare to #5939's photo album.

Your easiest bet would be to buy a suitable rim from a catalog.
