What did you guys do with the donut when you got your full size spares? Is it worth keeping, or did you just recycle it?

Thanks,

My donut spare is still sitting in my garage. If anyone has an ideas of what to do with it, let me know.

Mine is in garage too.

Dealer didn't want it. So, unless someone's got a bright idea what they would be good for, mine gets dumped. No space in garage for useless stuff.

I saved my donut. Put it back on the X when I was ready to sell the X, then sold the full size spare (at my original cost) to a member of this forum.

Ditto, ditto, and ditto ...

Perhaps we should pool our "resources" and open a donut shop:rolleyes:

Thanks for all the replies. When I have my full size tire mounted, I'll have the tire shop unmount the donut, and then I can recycle the steel spare wheel.

BTW - this is for a Pilot, not an MDX. I'm glad you guys worked out all this stuff for us in advance.

Don't forget the 29 x 9 inch vinyl cover for the spare. It adds a nice finishing touch and protects the rim at the same time.

Mine is against a wall in the basement. Sometimes a large unfinished basement is just an excuse to never throw anything away :D .

fvince,
Where can I find a cover for my full size spare?

FWIW, I found one in the automotive section at Walmart for $9.95. I went to Autozone first, and they looked at me like I had 3 eyes. Walmart was across the street, and there it was. The box said it came in numerous colors, but Walmart only had the black. It looks good under the truck.

Hope that helps.

I ordered my cover from Bestop.com. It is 29 x 9" plain black vinyl.

I fits great and looks as good. I could not find one that would fit at any of the auto parts stores or Wal Mart or Target here in Austin.
