Default OT - Spare tire stolen from the wifes SUV

My wife had her fullsize spare stolen from her Durango AT WORK!

Anyone use any methods to lock those things up?

During the day and they have cameras in the lot with a security guard. She parks in the same spot everyday.

Just going to buy a cheap rim and tire but it still is cash we have to pop for.

The spare is safely hidden away inside the vehicle, but someone decided to slash one of my tires last week. I was mostly upset from the standpoint that I was getting ready to trade it in sometime in the next few weeks...

This is the answer. I am actually suprised this wasn't already in place from the manufacturer.

It hangs under the Durango.

They had to climb under it.

Seriously, that took some balls. It's not like you can do that all that quickly - at least I wouldn't know how. Doesn't yours crank down from somewhere inside the car? I have to open my tailgate and use a piece of the jack to crank mine down.

It doesn't have a hole to install a padlock somewhere?

Dunno, I never needed it before, she thinks they broke the hanger.

I guess that's possible. It just hangs on a chain that unreels when you crank it down. Someone could probably cut the chain pretty easily, if they were motivated. I wouldn't think there's any way to secure it. You could put a lock on it, but that really wouldn't keep someone from using bolt cutters on the chain.

I am going to buy the cheapest RIM and tire we can get that will get us around in an emergency, get the bad tire fixed and put the spare back, more work but then the theif gets less dough for his trouble and maybe even passes.

i got a cable/lock going through the center of the rim and then around the frame on my ranger - similar to locking up a bike

edit • thought i would mention this is common in out here in california. better be careful with us all invading colorado.

sounds like an inside job. No way could someone randomly do that unseen on a work site with cameras.

I'd VERY CAREFULLY watch similar vehicles parked on site for any unusual 'spares'.

Yikes,
I just bought the wife a limited edition last month. I haven't even really had a chance to really look it over yet all the way. I thought they had locking mechs inside in that compartment behind the third row. I gotta go check that out now!

Did you talk to the security dept. to see if they caught anything on camera?

Yeah, my wife has one too. I've had gas siphoned, never a spare tire stolen. I like Lifeafter elway's idea w/ the use of a cable lock...

Seriously, someone stole your spare tire? Wow, man that is pretty pathetic. I too think this was an inside thing, and hell, if there is no video on it, then it very well could have been one of the security guards.
