I just checked under my new truck. Nissan decided to cheap out on us and give us a full size spare....on a cheap steel wheel! WTF?! $40,000 for a new truck and I get a steelie? My 04 SE had a full size spare on a 5th alloy wheel! :futwice:

Maybe some Dealers are stealing or taking off the Alloy Spares and switching them with Steel wheels.
They take off four spares off of four trucks, and switch them with four steel wheels from one truck. Then they charge the unsuspecting customer for a set of "Optional" Alloy Wheels.

I think you hit the nail on the head there!

wrong size tire. my 18's are an inch bigger than the spare.

275/70r18 vs 245/75r17 dealer kicked me around via phone, have to go over there and make a stink i guess, my sales guy was not in and that is whom they told me i have to talk with.

it sounds like your dealer swapped wheels from a 07 xe. If you do have an pro4-x then you better take that sucker in quick because if you get a flat front tire you will have to remove 2 wheels in order to use that spare because it won't fit over the front brakes on an 08!
