    The guys at discount tire told me that putting my spare in my stock location will scratch my wheels. That true? I’m not sure how, maybe if the chain rests on the face?

    Some folks here have made a rubber pad to go in between the rim and chain plate.

    I bought some heater hose, split it lengthwise, and zip tied it to the undercarriage locations my spare contacts. Also took a short bungee cord and hooked the chain down to stop it from flopping around. I think I got this idea from @jberry813 a while back....
