Spare jacked in the night...what kind of cable will I need?

Upon my first trip to the dealer for an oil change, they asked me if I was aware my spare is missing. Apparently the hot new thing is to clip this style of spare in 15 sec's and you'd never be the wiser.

I have to get ready for a road trip, gonna contact my local junkyard for a crappy spare and rim, they should be able to help me with the right size.

Any ideas on what to expect for the cable/chain that attaches it?
I haven't even seen it so I can't visualize what it looks like. Will I need to get
one from the dealer that is specialized for my make and model?

thanks a ton, you guys are the best..........

Not really, I don't park in Chicago neighborhoods that will block up cars and it stays in a garage
in my backyard. just mainly concerned with getting 'roadworthy'.

btw the KK spare is underneath and a small cable clipper will drop the tire down and off it walks...

So apparently the word from the dealer parts guy is the compact (shown above pt#) goes for $70
for the small one that takes donuts, the full size one is for a full size wheel. They can only get the compact before I leave so I may have to order it today and it'll be in the dealer from the local warehouse before I leave.

I guess a donut is fine for emergency, it'll all be interstate so no need for a full size...

thanks for the helpl, and for the record, I got the winch off and there's no cable hanging out of the hole, I wonder if that could be evidence of 'winch failure' in which case that outta be covered?
