When you upgrade your non-Brembo DD to Brembos, the stock wheels wont clear the fronts, so often people will go aftermarket or get OEM SRT 20x10 rims... mmmm, stance...

So to no one's surprise, the factory spare tire won't fit the front Brembos either, plus run-flats are expensive and eventually also ride like garbage.

To avoid using a wheel spacer and other issues that brings, plus if you use the DD to tow, you want a fullsize spare for the just-in-case moments. For those that don't have a spare, check out the pics and you can likely get the OEM parts to install and get the wind-down/drop-down spare in the rear. This will also prevent the issue of having to do a half car tire rotation if you get a front flat, as you'd have to take the spare, put it on the rear, take the good rear tire and move it to the front where the flat is. Yuck.

You'll need:

1. Wheel - Any 20x10 that matches the offset of your current 20x10. Mine was easy, I use Mopar OEM 20x10 so I just went to Ebay and looked for a 20x10 rim. It doesn't need to be pretty, just round, haha!

2. Tire - You need a symmetric or asymmetric tire for the spare - DO NOT GET A DIRECTIONAL! (see here for options: Non-directional options for the 295/45/20? - Found a few)

3. (Only if you don't have a spare underneath, all the OEM parts - crank, plastic splash guards, etc)

Just IMO, that tire being seen hanging down looks terrible. I'd rather deal with the hassle of the one side tire rotation instead. How often do you really get a flat?

Just curious, why do our DD’s with runflats come with spare tire? I have a 22 TNG with brembos, can’t I just remove the spare? Is the spare they put under the car even going to work with my brakes? Figured take it out and remove slash guards and it would give a better look at the rear suspension, no?

My 2022 RT TNG comes with no spare tire, considering to get one. Does anyone know if the factory 20x8 wheel fits the front Brembo? If fits, what the offset should be? Still 50mm? I don't mind to use a 265/50R20 tire temporarily, it should be seen less from behind when hanging in the bay. Thanks in advance.

The spare is for towing and getting a flat you can't tow on the run flat. Oddly while towing was the only flat I have ever had I picked up a piece of metal at the boat ramp and it punctured the tire.

Why dont you have a spare ? did they discontinue it on the 2022 ? My 2021 Tow N Go has a full size spare

I know on older SRT vehicles they always included a pump and slime sealer crap, I guess since most spares don't clear the large brakes. 20x8 wont clear brembos.

I just got an email from Modern Spare, they are going to work on a package for our Durangos. If you have the 6-piston Brembos up front you will need to use the spacer just like on the Challenger or Charger. They told me they will get back to me in March when they get their new shipment of wheels in.
