After getting my DD bullitts, I decided to get rid of my skinny spare tire and replace it with one of my extra bullitt wheels. Only thing I had to do is extend the jack/tire hold down hook and take out the board between the carpet and spare tire. Then cut the carpet out a little bit, then drop in the wheel. Good idea IMO, what do you guys think?

It looks good, even if it adds a little wieght.

I think it was a great idea. That way when you get a flat you have a spare with style..

I think it's awesome! I was actually thinking of doing the same thing! Unless someone buys mine, but they are FRPP 17x8 forged alum bullits :P anyway. nice deal, looks pretty good!

PS, wouldnt a little weight in the rear help out? I mean our rearends are pretty light... and people move the battery to the rear to put more weight on the tires.... My friend actually ran .2 faster on the 1/4 with his spare IN...
i agree that it technicly will help...but who can justify what .2 of a second came from?

I got the hardware from ace hardware. Home depot didnt have anything that would work. The three things that I circled in pic #3 is all I needed to get. One, 8mm hex bolt 3 1/2" long and two couplers.
