It's really simple.

Buy extra wheel and tire

Remove doughnut

Force the spare in. It's really tight, but just keep pushing and it will slide in. (Gross Stop Thinking What You're Thinking!)

As for the carpet, I just placed it back in the car with the spare in place and drilled holes on either side and the top of the tire (be carefully not to drill into the tire!).

Took both the carpet and tire out and placed it on some sawhorses. I lined up the tire on the backside of the carpet with the holes I drilled earlier. then I traced with a sharpie around the tire.

I then took the tire off and used a jig saw to cut the carpet. I cut on the inside of the line about 1/4". I test fitted everything and then used a dremel to fine tune it.


It's really simple.
