I found NOS US-Mag wheel for spare tire. Wheel has been made late 1960´s or early 1970´s. Little cleaning and it looks good as when it was new. Pictures of wheel and other spare tire related items are here.

Always, I have only these eyes :wink:

Now spare tire session is over. Rubber is mounted on the wheel and it is in the trunk.

A donut spare is ok if you are going to stay around the house. I bought a wheel like the ones on the Bullitt along with a BFG and put it in the trunk. Last year I was enroute to Orange Beach Al when I ran over some debris in the road and tore the sidewall out of the tire. I had to run the spare for 3 days before being able to purchase a new BFG. If I hadn't had the right spare I would have been shut down for 3 days.

Actually this donut is right size. 195/65-15" tire has same diameter as 225/45-17" tire. I can drive home anywhere with that wheel tire compo. If diameter at spare tire and other tires is differet and I blow rear tire then it will be problem besauce limted slip rear end will burn/worn out (traction lock if you use Detroit locker then it is different sittuation).

I was thinking about the donut spare -- you can get them for about $200. What did the real wheel and tire cost you ?, and did it sit in the well OK ?? This can of fix-a-flat set-up really s-cks.

John every once in a while a member on this site will get new wheels . If we are lucky he or she will sell the bullitt wheels to us. To use the full size wheel as a spare you have to let some of the air out of the tire, it will then fit in the well. This is not a problem because we have the fix-o-flat compressor in the trunk to pump it up should the need arise.I was lucky enough to get one from a member a couple of months ago at a very good price.Watch the forums and check in daily.Post up letting other members know that you are in the market to buy a full size bullitt wheel/tire for your trunk.Getting one is kind of a right place right time thing,the four wheels were gone in about 3 minutes.

RC,

Yes, Brenspeed is a Paid Legit Vendor now.

I know because I Paid for it Personally.

Brenspeed did the Banner Specially for this Bullitt IMBOC Site.

That is why it has on the Left side of the Banner different Pics rotating of the Bullitt Mustang.

Plus the Green Color for the Banner.

It is Not a Generic Banner, it is Specific to IMBOC.

The Brenspeed Banner is at the Top Center along with I think 4-others.

They Rotate as we log onto the Forums or do a Refresh Screen.

Refresh your Screen and you will see the different one's Rotate.

As I recall they are:
