You are correct the whole point in the spare being mounted and balanced when you need it. What I am getting at is a spare (on all the GM trucks I have owned ) did not come with a "factory" wheel but a black steel wheel and the spare tire would have to mounted and balanced on one of the 4 wheels cause I am not going to be rocking 1 steel wheel and 3 factory wheels on my NNBS to try and save a buck. Am I missing something with expecting a 5th factory wheel as a spare?? I am a very simple man so this night be going right over my head.
