The quote for a new spare tire carrier for my 1995 T100 was $98.00 + tax. I went to the salvage yard a couple of times and found one. The front desk guy initially said it would be $20.00 to purchase it. I looked down for a while to consider it. He then said well, maybe $15.00. HA!! I didn't realize it was up for negotiation. So I went out in the salvage yard and took off the 4 bolts/nuts and got the spare tire carrier. I decided not to clean it up. When I got back he looked at it and said the price would be $10.00. Yes!! And the wind down mechanism works fine. I also found an almost new wheel at Discount Tire, which is nationwide. The original wheel was $135.00. They charged me $35.00 for it. So,including tax, I saved over $200.00 buying used versus new. It pays to shop around.
