    so im buying another 17" sport wheel and tire to use as a spare instead of the oem spare so i never gotta have a ghetto wheel even if i get a flat. my question is, will it fit where the spare goes? or do i need to get a mount to put it in the bed?

    I just did this two weeks ago. You have to remove the center cap on the sport wheel, but after that it hooks right up where the spare steel wheel connected.

    Nope, just takes a little force to pop it out, then I left it in my garage. There's no need to carry around 5 caps cause when/if the spare is needed, the cap will have to come off the flat wheel so that it can be stowed, at which point it could go on the spare.
