My F250 has the spare wheel rim different than the others. Didn't know that was a thing.

I didn't see a lot of rust.

It seems like I always have donuts.

Are those space-saving spares?

I am only concerned about this since I found out my Marathon/Baja Bug/Jubilee wheels are by Lemmerz:

I like this a lot. I picked this thread because it has a Golf VR6 engine and transmission.

That space could still be used, even if ultimately restricted to carry a kid or a small dog
