They look to me to be Outlaw II's in chrome, but I don't think they make them in chrome anymore, just aluminium.

they're chrome plated steel. didn't see them on AR's website, but you could put an AR centercap in them.

Good observation. I did notice before that the Outlaw II's actually have 12 holes around vs. these with 10, but thought maybe it was just an older style wheel. Even if it's not the same wheel, it's close enough I doubt anyone would ever notice, especially if it's just for the spare.

yep. very common style, go with the cragers mentioned above, or i bet you could even find some generic in that style too.

nobody is going to notice if the centercap is different.

thanks guys, now i just have to track down a full size spare tire, the one on the stock set is the 14 year old one from the factory. would running a spare that is slightly smaller than my 30's hurt it in an emergency? by slightly smaller, i mean the stock size tire from '95

you won't even need the center cap if it'll be a spare. just use the one from one of your wheels when the time comes.

will there be any proplems if the spare is slightly smaller than the other 3 tires? my spare right now is one of my winter tires but i will soon need my old spare which was the stock size tire which is the metric equivalent of my 30's but is still smaller, will it be a problem?
