I'm trying to help a fellow wheeler and FJ owner. The spare was stolen recently and, considering the time of year, money is tight. Does anyone have a spare wheel they will part with? 285/75R16 is the target size, but if anyone has a 17" rim I have a 17" tire I will donate. I am also willing to pay mount and balance costs out of my pocket.
If anyone wants more info then send me a PM. I want to preserve someone's privacy by not putting too many details in public.
Thanks guys!

I have a 17 inch rim I can donate to the cause.
Let me know if you need it. It does NOT have the TPMS, fyi.

I have a 285/70-17 Hankook Dynapro MT lying around, tire only. This was donated to me as a backup spare so I'm happy to pass it along to someone in need.

many Discount Tire stores will do a basic mount & balance really cheap (occasionally free) if you show up and let them know the situation. The DT near Thomas and 32nd street didn't charge me last time Smile Really depends on the manager and their mood the day you show up.

Is there anyone going from Tucson to Phoenix that can carry the rim up there?
I will post on facebook also.

Well guys, Operation Spare Tire was a complete success! The rim and tire were delivered last night and the deserving FJ owner couldn't have been happier or more surprised!
Thank you all for your help.
