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.

Thanks.

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 www.aaarims.com

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?

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.
