Spare Tire Needed

I'm trying to find a spare tire for my 2006 Commander. Some POS stole my spare tire from under my car some time this week....the joys of living in Chicago!! Anyway, I have the base model wheels (17" aluminum cast). Any help would be much appreciated.

Well you could try a junkyard or a wrecker. That would probably be your cheapest solution. If you want to buy a new rim and tire, one of the cheapest online places I've seen OEM wheels is

[SIZE="1"]2008 WK Overland HEMI - Modern Blue Pearlcoat
Fully loaded with slush mats of course.

MUST GO! 1994 Limited ZJ 5.2L V8 - Light Driftwood Satin Glow
It's a 94 5.2L Limited - trxus 33's on 15x7 steelies, 4.56s w/ front OX and rear trutrac, NP242 swap, novak shift kit, Kevin's ultimate 4.5" lift + ACOS, ARB front bumper w/warn M8000, rear tomkin machine bumper w/ tire carrier, kevin's hardore railz, kevin's ultimate tc skid, kevin's trackbar conversion, rusty's gas skid, flexalite efan, Kolak's performance ignition and brake upgrades. ViAir OBA, custom storage/sub box and I'm sure there's a bunch of other things I'm missing. Everything is a little over 3 years old with less than 10K miles. Looking to get around $4k.

I haven't had any luck finding anything online. Everyone is selling 4 and so far i haven't been able to find anyone willing to sell just one. Here is a picture of the wheel that I need. Thanks for the help guys.

If the link to the picture doesn't work, I'll get one up by tomorrow.

If you have a Discount Tire store near you try them. I have gotten just one wheel from them in the past. Your insurance cover it?

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Thanks for the help guys. I just talked to my insurance guy yesterday, turns out all I have to pay is the $250 deductible. Not bad considering I also got an estimate from the Jeep dealership yesterday for about $750 with installation.
