My uncle gave me his car, and the “spare” in the trunk was a full size tire of a completely different size, width, everything… it obviously was not the OEM spare. I want to get a full size tire and wheel from the junkyard. I know those tires aren’t always in the best shape and everything, but I would could eat the $2 entry fee if the tires looked obviously bad. This would be a true spare just to get me to the shop in case I lose a tire, so it doesn’t need to be perfect.
OK, so now the dumb question part: when I yank the tire off, what do I do with the car I took it from? Is it BYO cinder block to prop the car up? Does the junkyard have things for this situation?
