    My spare on the external carrier has been locked for about 20 years now. I need to check if the lock still works. Thank goodness I've never gotten a flat in a loooong time.

    I've used a bicycle u-lock through the wheel in the past to lock the spare to something.

    My spare tire carrier is on the outside and when I take the nasty wheel and good for nothing bald 31 (even more bald then the ones on the truck) and put a 33 with a nice wheel I'll lock it up.
