I'm looking into replacing my donut spare with a like kind (T125/70D15). Having said that I been thus far unsuccessful in locating a new replacement. I don't trust a 24 year old tire on the road at hiway speeds. What are you guys out there have done about a replacement?

The tire can be bought from Tirerack.

Do you need the rim? If so, maybe ebay, or a junkyard and mount a new tire on it?

Also, have you contacted a local tire shop? If you can order it from tire rack, any tire shop should be able to get one.

I think certain PT Cruiser models with the 5x100 bolt pattern may serve as a substitute.

I ended up getting a replacement off of eBay for about $45. That's $32 for the spare and the balance was shipping. The spare was off of a 2005 GM vehicle. Brought my spare and the replacement & the swapped out the tires.

Pick-a-part here only charges $12 for a spare rim and tire.
But spare tires are out of the sun and weather and usally are decent.
Make sure to check the pressure from time to time.

Yup... I drove 2 hours at 65mph on my donut spare in a non-fiero vehicle. I checked it though and it didn't get warm.... I figured I was lucky it didn't blow out

Oh, 55mph was max speed listed on spare.

Ummm that doesn't sound correct. Having sold GM vehicles from 1977 to 2014, I don't recall ever having a tire with that low speed. They were 55 and 60 and marked on the tires.
