Anyone else ever loose their spare tire??

Recommended Posts

Anyone else ever lose their spare tire from under their truck? I have a 1997 F150 and noticed this weekend that my spare is missing, cable that holds it up is broke off clean, didn't even look rusty. Last time I used it was well over a year ago, and can't remember the last time I checked to see if it was there.... Guess it's time to make a trip to the junk yard to pick up another.

Aluminum wheel?

We replace them all the time because they get stolen. We had one truck in twice within a couple of months! The funny thing was he brought it in because the TPMS light was flashing. He looked at us like a deer staring into headlights when we asked him where his spare tire was!

It was a steel rim, but the tire was like new (but original). I don't think it was stolen, truck is parked in a garage and my parking lot at work is very busy. I guess the chance is there that it may have been stolen, but can't prove it.

I lost one off my old 97 chevy. I wish I could have seen it fly off, not just to find it but to see it fly through the air!

I was thinking the same, most likely I was going 70 when it came loose. I haven't heard of any accidents involving a loose tire on HWY 14 which is a good thing...

No, but i've been in a vehicle and had one of the 4 good times come off shocked

It's not a good thing to go around a corner and see your own tire pass you up.

Been there, at the time it was far from funny but after a few cold ones, it was the joke of the day. Who would have thought a tire not mounted to the car would travel at a faster speed?????

My 87 F150 had 4 lugs break off the left front, BAM thing went down, and there went the tire straight on down the road. Someone picked it up and brought it back to me. That was scary

I did on my blazer. I went in to get some new tires and i was going to have them switch out the spare for one of the ones that was being replaced since it was only 3 years old. They called me and asked me where it was at and I couldnt believe it. It was there when I got in the truck to drive up there. I guess it came off on freeway somewhere. I felt really bad because that could do some real damage if it hit someone.

Looks like it will be $60 to get a new spare and cable / carrier from the scrap yard, not to bad I guess.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
