Hey Bill,Bill Scott said:Does anybody out there know if the SSR bolt pattern is the same as the Trailblazer? I'd feel alot better with some sort of a spare when I'm on the road.
P/P,Purple Penelope said:Hey Bill,
Which tire would you carry as a spare? :confused You have to guess whether the front or back is the one you will need.
Yes you do see a place for that spare tire that the trailblazer has mounted in the same spot. BUT..... with the dual exaust on either side of that location unlike the trialblazer the rubber from your spare will melt and you don't want that funk getting inside your $50,000 dollar truck now do you? :nonofiftiesnut said:Just installed a trailer recptacle on my SSR ("that should have been installed by GM") and discovered where the rear frame is designed for a spare tire. It is very simple " if anyone can show GM that the battery can go somewheres else", the missing spare tire can be mounted right where it was designed to go.
Bill,Bill Scott said:I bought a rim off of a trailblazer ( spare 17 inch salvage :thumbs ) you have to come up with a compromise between the front 255/45/19 and rear 295/40/20 the front being 28.0 inches high and the rear which is 29.3 if you go to a tire size conversion chart it will show you which sizes fall between these two heights. For instance a 225/65/17 is 28'' and a 205/70/17 is 28.3''
Don't forget a lug wrench and a scissor jack !!!
Bill Scott said:I haven't even looked at that possibility, first would the spare fit if the battery was not in the way, and second where would you put the battery if that were the case. Maybe I'll take a look at it Tomorrow and see if it looks like it's even an option. :confused
