Might be worth trying a few tyre places .. Bob Jane/Tyrepower etc etc ... They often get new vehicles in to have aftermarket wheels fitted and the old (new?) ones just sit there. I got 5 rims for my Landcruiser about 2 years ago for nix, but I was buying a set of all terrains at the time. Haggle, because if you don't buy them, they will sit there even longer.
Cheers

can back that up. I got my extra spare rims for my rodeo from
tyrepower. new $60.I tried wreakers and was not going to pay what
holden dealers wanted.I was lucky or unlucky staked a tyre first trip less than
1000 k,s. took it in to see if it was repairable and got talking about
spares.he said I,ve got some out back . so yea tyre places are worth
trying first. cheers brian

HI Barry
for my spare i use a standard steel rim off a navara they are easier to find, to save space i fitted a narrower tyre of the same rolling radius, although mines a 95 i assume they are still the same on the 2000 model

Barrie,

If all your after is the extra security a second spare will provide, why not just take an extra tyre casing, minus the rim. A lot less weight.

Of course, you would need access to tyre repair equipment such as Tyre Pliers, or R&R Beadbreaker and a good 12 volt tyre pump, but that is sensible investment for remote travelling in any case.
