    I need it on a 16x12 wheel 38inch tire don't care much about the way it looks just for getting to the shop if I get a flat. It needs to fit a 8 lug GMC 2003, like I said I don't care if it is bald with a rusty rim just trying to avoid spending 800 bucks on a spare.

    have you checked you local junkyard or salvage dealers? they will get totalled out trucks and part them out for pretty cheap.

    I thought this was a post about LOOSING the spare tire that sits around your waist!! :crazy::crazy::crazy::crazy:

    J/K!!!

    I wish I could help ya out bro, Sgt Fishslayer had a great idea, I'd check the local scrap yards, just tell them what you want it for, such as a 2003 GMC half ton truck. They will have what you need most likely.

    Good luck!

    Go to the Tire Rack web site. They will sell you any brand, any size tire cheaper than anyone in the country. tirerack.com

    My Ford has BF Goodrich Mud Terrians on it. Tire Rack got me 150 apiece. Everyone else was 200 plus per tire.
