Spare tire..loose


Recommended Posts

Took the spare tire cover off to polish ( just easier). Checked the bar/ring that holds the spare tire on. It was loose. Took two full turns to snug it up. I know I looked at it last Spring and it was tight. We have added this to our Spring "wake-up" list...

If the tire loses air from a slow leak that ring will get loose, it is the rubber sidewall pressing against the hull that keeps it from moving. (A pretty stupid engineering decision,)  When did you last check the pressure? If you add an extension hose you can easily check it without disturbing the wheel or the cover, if you route the end out the bottom of the cover
