sorry if it was already answered somewhere... but before I order a full size rim, will it fit in place of the donut?

thanks,

Chris

interesting question..
But im going to guess no.

The standard traverse gets NO doughnut spare.
Order separately or get the tow package- and you get a spare doughnut....
Youd think that the tow package would get you a full size spare--- but it does not.
I have not seen the mechanism for raising or lowering the spare either... is it a winch?

yes, my 1LT came with the spare doughnut

I also have the trailering package but, it's still a doughnut.

Yes, I did not try it yet but it looks like it's the same concept as my Xterra.... you just lower the tire via a bolt located in the trunk storage compartment. In my X, it's chain that lowers the tire down.

I called the dealership and the guy that answered at the parts department said "well it's a new car so I'm not sure." huh?... the 2010s either are or will be on the lot soon.. come on!

I remember when I bought the car they showed me a list of all their machanics... and their years of experience ranging from 2 - 30 or 40 :) ... you would think that my question was a simple one. I guess I can call again later & ask ... hopefully getting someone else.

im thinking the area where the spare doughnut sits---is designed specifically for a tire the size of the doughnut...
Anything bigger will not fit-- will ve bery visible--- or would require significant mods. let us know.
