OK, so I've come to a bit of a conundrum for where to keep my spare. With the way I'm currently doing the interior, there's unfortunately no where inside the van for my spare... I'd love to avoid mounting it on the rear door. Has anyone ever made something / bought something to mount the spare underneath the van? Not sure how to go about this. Worse case scenario, I buy another matching wheel so at least the rear mounted spare looks cool.. haha. Thanks in advance. Bramble On.

Ugh.... Sort of kills the look of the shorty dodge van. Dammit. Well, Maybe Ill make my last bench extra large to fit the spare under... doubtful that will work or even look right with what I've already got built in there... hmmm. Might have to invest in another matching wheel then... that might look cool... might.

Or you could get a smaller tire to mount on the spare rim, like a donut. a 205/60/15 tire is alot smaller around to fit under your bench, temp use only of course.

The donut idea is not terrible... I've just always been of the mind that these heavier vehicles aren't really suited for a donut... And, I will have a bed in the back... only problem is, we're setting it up like a RV/ camper so there's a table and pedestal, that drops between benches, thus creating the bed... hell, maybe I'll just get AAA hahaha. But, I could see a 5th full size matching wheel working OK...

Two bolts through the windshield is a non starter...In front of the rad makes a great bug catcher......on the roof the van will leak...donuts are for eating! A done van ways 7k plus and a donut will last an hour, terrible on Sunday night on the way home when all tire shops are closed !!!Back door it is ! But make it look cool !
