Hi Guys. Recently had my spare stolen without any damage to the lowering mechanism or lock. Seems like thieves have a way to remove the wheel quite easy without any serious mechanical intervention. I would like to replace the spare with a steel rim and tyre. If anyone has this for sale, please let me know.

Sad to hear, even though this is a fairly common problem. The worst is that you might not be aware until you need the spare.

What size rim? I have a 15" steel rim with 31" tyre.

Just check OLX plenty for sale round about R2k

You will probably buy your own wheel back
