    Like many I have been loyal to the Bowtie for over 40 years and still like the older Gm vehicles. Those were built much better than todays Chinese version.
    Our welcome wagon hospitality??? Really?? You come into our home and slur what we all love over you having a "correct" spare under your bed. I really dont see how you can really think that you would have a alloy spare wheel. I check my spare about every 6k miles to make sure it is inflated and ready in emergency situations (what a spare is for) and it sees hell up under the bed. I would not want a upgraded wheel to be under there to start with.

    That's another good point Alston. My spare wheel is just a steel wheel & it looks like it's been sitting in a swamp for 20 years. I can't imagine an aluminum alloy lasting much longer than 6 months or a year without having to buff it down & recoat it.

    Do you think coach24 has his F150 yet? I sure as hell hope so. Then he can join their forum and really have something to cry about.

    I've seen this situation before in the past. The problem is not GM, but your dealership. The dealership has control over what they order, and they are perfectly capable of ordering a similar spare to the other 4 tires. But they usually don't to reduce costs so they can make more money on the sale of the vehicle. That is if your dealership cares about what they order, as I've seen so many of them really could care less.

    Hmmm. I've been educated... I could have sworn that my spare had the same wheel as the 4 on the ground (tire size was a given since I stayed with the factory 17s) and it had been included in the rotations. I just checked, and it has a black steel wheel and the tire doesn't look like it has seen pavement. Kind of surprised me because the '02 that I traded in on this one did have a matching spare tire and wheel.

    I am glad you brought this back Adam. I believe I counted this noob taking stabs at 4 stellar members. And I still laugh at the fact someone would think they would get a matching spare on a pick up. Haha!
