Need help from fellow Jeep Renegade owners!!

I purchased a 2016 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk about 8 months ago and I love it. Ive only had one problem with it and it was the radiator but thankfully the warranty covered it.

My problem is actually related to the spare tire. When I purchased my Jeep Renegade, I am 99.9% positive my TH came with a full spare and a TH wheel, however, I opened my truck today to vacuum the back and noticed I have a worn out, beat up spare with a black wheel. The only thing I can think of is that the Dealership swapped my tire, but I don't know why. I've taken it to service twice, once for the radiator and the other for an oil change.

To make my story short, that the dealership basically told me that I'm lying. (Unfortunately, I never took a picture of the spare when I purchased my Jeep, I mean, who does) The manager at my nearest Jeep dealership, told me that the Renegades have never had a TH wheel in the spare tire. However, when I left the place I googled and saw a couple pictures of a full TH wheel in the spare tire.

I would like to ask all you Jeepers that own a Trailhawk model to post a picture of your spare tire and wheel and also post the year of the Renegade. I want to find out if all TH models come with TH wheel.

(I attached a picture of the ugly used spare they left in my Jeep, they could've at least washed it!)

Did you ever resolve this? I just looked at my door placard tonight before work and it says it has a full size spare tire. I can double check after work if you like. Mine is also a trailhawk.

My Renegade Trail hawk came with a full size stock Goodyear on a black steel wheel.

Ladies, when a man tells you he's going to do something, He will. You don't have to remind him every 6 months!

My wife is trading her 2010 JKU for a new 18 Renegade Latitude or Altitude tomorrow, we looked at a Trail Hawk on Saturday and my dealer told us the Trail Hawks came with a full size spare. Part of the off road pkg. I remember seeing one in the trunk area.

2015 Trailhawk, full alloy wheel just like the ones on the car, it even has the pressure sensor installed, it read just fine when I used it. It is quite expensive, wheel+tyre+sensor, how it is sold goes up to 550E, 600USD, expensive. (Here in Romania) All Trailhawks come with it, I`ve read the papers with optionals and prices on all years. Yours had been stolen. But you cannot prove it unfortunately and I know of a service that didn't know of one employee who was replacing original parts with Chinese crap... It's possible that the representative doesn't know what mechanics are doing or .. I don't know, himself might be involved.. Keep confronting them, sue them, bring your witnesses, I don't know, you can't leave it like that, it's outrageous! I'll send you a picture tomorrow maybe, but it's irrelevant, you know what you had in your trunk!
