Just had a new 285/70-17 Wildpeak AT3W on a new TRD Pro wheel installed to have a matching spare and 5 tire rotation. The cost of the tire, wheel, TPMS, mount and balance, tire certificate, ceramic coating my spare wheel and taxes cost me a whopping $580. I know they make a spare tire steel/skid protector, but, I was wondering about just running a spare tire cover underneath. Cut a weep hole or two for moisture and dust and use a padlock to the chain link.
What are your ideas or experiences for this? TIA

I little off topic but have to ask.

Did your previous spare have a TPM?
Does your OBD pick up the signal from the spare TPM ?

Mine does not I'm replacing all 4 this week and was contemplating adding one to the spare but was told My OBD won't see it.
How about yours?

Rocks. And it is a new 285 on a new Pro wheel that I am doing a 5 tire rotation with.

Honestly haven't had any issues with my spare getting dinged from rocks. Can get scratch from all the dirt that gets stuck up in the spare well though!

No. The factory Bridgestone spare tire and wheel did not come with a TPMS. Since my 2018 doesnít have individual tire psi Iím not sure. The only thing I noticed was the low tire light come on after I lowered down all the tires prior to going 128 miles off-road. I did put a new TPMS in the new spare as this will be one of my 5 tire rotation. I donít think it detects the spare, but, really not quite sure.

If I had a used 285 on a steel wheel I probably wouldnít care. This was a inexpensive trial before my trip. I wished you could have joined us. Great time and group. Maybe next time. Three of the four 4Runners were white. You could have been the fourth. I was the black sheep.

Wish I could have! But one of our small furry familly members got sick so we have been taking care of him the last several weeks

Regarding the spare, I also am doing a 5 tire rotation but using the stock trail wheels so scratches don't like too bad haha

I have a Tacoma X-Runner, and while I was driving, the cable snapped.
Tire dropped on an angle and almost lifted the rear wheels fully off the ground.

Scared me a little.
I probably would have dropped a deuce.
