    I found a new spare tire kit that fits Scat Packs and SRTs without spacers. It includes a wheel, donut tire and scissor jack. It costs $299- about the same if you had ordered the spare from the factory. For those of you who drive long distances, this may be a smart investment. Here is the link:

    I have a 2017 Challenger TA 392; will this spare tire fit that model too as it does have the Hellcat Brembo brakes front and rear?

    I believe so as long as you use the spacer....

    I notice that the spare tire is 18". My R/T blacktop package has 20" tires. Anyone have an opinion on whether an 18" spare would work for short distances when the other tires are 20"?

    it will work but remember it is a temp tire. don't use it for long. best thing to do is if you have a flat on the rear, change one of the front ones to the back, and put the spare on the front, I know it will be a pain in the ass, but it would make sense to keep like tires on the drive line part.
