I have a 19 inch chrome rim that has a little damage that a body shop did when they removed it for painting.
Would be great as a spare tire.

If you plan to use it for a spare it won't work on all 4 corners because of not clearing the brakes. Need a 17 inch. Just as tip.

Still not seeing your reasoning that a 17" wheel will clear brakes that a 19" wheel won't?
I think it is the offset and also the circumference of the tire. There has been much discussion on this before . If you use the 17 it will fit both front and back. I got mine from a wrecking yard works fine. Test bolted it front and back and it works fine.

Spare Tire from a TrailBlazer or Envoy, 17X7 225/65-17. Hope this helps.

He's thinking a spare but you need a replacement. 17 is the minimum but the 19 will fit fine.
By the way, Continental tires have a wheel saver design that prevents curb rash.

If you have MGP Caliper covers installed make sure you remove them before installing the spare or you will hear a horrible noise and have a wadded up piece of aluminum instead of a caliper cover after driving. Add a small wrench to remove the cover nuts to your tool kit.

Already figured that out and wrench is in my spare kit. I have everything except a jack. Still looking for an electric one. In the mean time I have roadside assistance for the jack part.

yeah must be the offset of the front wheel not fitting the rear brakes without a spacer.
