Thanks, that helps a lot! I'll be ordering that shortly!

Looking at the website, it appears that part number is for the steel wheel only, no tire.
I think I may go check the salvage yards first as its gonna get pricey if I buy all new and still have to source a tire as well. Didn't really want to have to do that, but if I can find a wrecked 300/charger/challenger, I might be able to pick up the right spare if somebody didn't already beat me to it.

Ahhh, hadn't thought of that. Yeah, a front end damaged Challenger will be your huckleberry ;)

search your local craig's list for "donut spare", you might get lucky...I found 2 here for sale which would fit an LX (one for $35 and the other for way too much to bother with).

You're looking for 5 lug spares that are similar in appearance to this one:



The bolt hole pattern is actually 5x115 if you find any listed by bolt pattern.

Found one on Craigslist today. Was 65 miles away, but that just gave me a reason to go drive. Lol. $25. From an 06 Chrysler 300.

That should work fine...make sure to check the PSIs before stashing in your trunk for later use, it's likely lost 15-25 lbs at least, maybe more if it's just been sitting. Air it up to 60 psi (or whatever it says on the tire-it will list target psi molded into sidewall) and you're good to go.

Note: If they include the scissor jack and lug wrench with it, the lug wrench will likely be for 21mm lug nuts, but your OE lugs are probably bigger (22mm or 7\8"; same thing basically), so you wouldn't be able to use that '06 lug wrench on ur car's lugs, but keep it with that '06 scissor jack because the jack's up/down nut will be same 21mm size.

I already bought the factory correct jack and wrench from Chrysler, so no issues there. The tire looks to be in good shape, but it's still 11 years old, so I may replace it in the near future. It is 60psi.

For tires, I think 7-10 years is max life. No cracking? It's hopefully been out of the sun it's whole life and will be ok

No cracking, looks good. But 11 years sitting in a so cal trunk (a lot of heat exposure), I'm thinking I should replace it sooner or later.

The Dodge site will let you order a compact spare with a 2018 SXT Plus with Blacktop package. Rick Keefer Dodge has a 2018 Challenger SXT Plus with Blacktop Package and the compact spare. Tried to put the links up but I am not worthy.

I could not believe it when I saw that you had to order a spare for an 2017 SXT Plus for $300 when in 2016 the only way you could not get a spare was if you had the HK sound with subs instead of the spare.

I cannot speak to the difference in all those, but I have weighed the spare tire & wheel, and they comes in at 11.34 kg (25 lbs) IIRC.

04782819AB, 04782465AB or 04895689AA comes as wheel (tyre + rim) or just as rim (without tyre)?
Should be rim and tire. I’ve never seen just the rim available anywhere.

If I had to guess, I’d say that rim weighs 3/4 of what the rim and tire combo weighs, so 7-8 kg probably.
