Llooks like you need to do what i do. Carry two spares, one under the hood, and one in the back, both fullsize and keep a couple of spare at home also. And a BFH to fix those tweeked rims. A can of starting fluid and some matches for stuborn tires that come off the bead to(but use caution using this method of setting beads!!)

How did you do that to that rim anyway? Looks like you were having fun!

Well - that spare rim is pretty weak - that's why we tell folks not to run them off-road (people are constantly tempted as they are 15" rims). They are thin and wimpy.

I lost the spare in the Tahuya ORV park, I was floppin up a nasty hill in 4-lo with 2nd gear pinned and it geal real skinny at the top with trees on both sides with tall roots stickin out all over. If I had stopped when I noticed it, I would have slid into and bounced off lots of stuff with no hope of stopping till I hit the bottom so I kept on it and jumped the ~7"~ tall tree roots. That sucker bent my Radious arm back a bunch and twisted my lower arm real bad. My CV shaft now rubs on the part of the body that hangs down behind it. I'll take a picture of a twisted stuff the next time I'm in the shop. I killed the 13incher the night before and put on the spare for "tomorrow's" run. I put the flat 13incher back on and drove home till it was nothin left and finished off on the clampin 15 spare rim:headbang:

It rubs the fender when I turn far right and it pulls a little to the right, but it's not bad enough to cause premature tire wear. It'll be fixed soon anyways.

Good whack to the tire in the right place will do it.
