Anyone have any experience with storing their spare up on the roof?
I upgraded to 255's on my old Suburban, so the spare no longer fits in the interior cutout for it. So it's going on the roof. I bought a Smittybilt brand tire cover, I figured I would sew some webbing in an "X" to it so I can tie it off to the corners of the factory rack. The tire will rest directly on the rooftop "runners".
One problem I forsee is that the roof is crowned, and the tire won't sit flat. I am hoping that the webbing will keep it from teetering from side to side. Anyone else forsee an issue?
The truck is 2000 miles away, so I won't get to this until later this year...
