Hers is a different style but just need for a spare so doesn't matter as long as its a wk rim or even just fits no matter what its from. If you're coming to Toronto this weekend bring it and we'll see if it fits. Joking of course but it may not be cost effective to get it here, but it may come to that.

LOL, yeah shipping would kill, I didn't notice you were in Canada sorry. I have to go to North Bay sometime this summer but I couldn't tell you when.

Its not really that far actually, by coincidence just about the half way point on your way to North Bay. I'm going to look into shipping cost just for the hell of it. You probably know this but if not, passport required for us to go stateside and you here. Never required until a few years ago, any id like drivers licence was all we needed.

near Toronto, a place called Oakville. I guess I should update that info. Seems like they're almost giving those rims away eveywhere but here.

I have a full set of 18" rims from my 08 grand Cherokee. 5 of them. you can have them for free if you pay shipping, or come and pick them up. I'm in Edmonton, AB.

They are the chrome 10-spoke or something like that. They aren't in the best condition, but they aren't bad either. all 5 have winter rubber on them, about 40%~. The one full size spare is mint with 100% rubber.

WTF, rims everywhere but here? thats a very generous offer and I appreciate it. but shes got 17's with almost new rubber so I'm just looking for 1 rim for the spare. now if was closer I'd take you up on that just to fill up more space that I don't have in the garage.

Why not just buy a steel 17" rim from a tire shop or even Canadian Tire to use as the spare? Probably runs about $100
