    Checked your spare lately?

    Over the weekend, and since the vehicle was recently purchased used, I dropped the spared for an inspection. The tire looked as though it had never been out of the cradle. It had 18psi. Aired it up and lubricated the pulley.

    Toyota does make it easy to drop and cradle the spare.

    Good tip!

    I checked my spare recently to ensure proper tire inflation.

    Checked mine a while ago. Kinda scared to use it as it has imprints/ wear marks in it from the brackets it's tucked up to. Looks like this (not mine).

    Ditto. My spare has some slight imprints, actually very slight. It's 8+ years old and still viable (as a spare).
