I'm looking to upgrade the tires on my 2021 Crosstrek sport, and I need another wheel for the spare. I am going to stick with the factory wheels for now. Does anyone know where I can get a cheap / used wheel that looks like this one? Pretty sure it is this "17x7.0-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, dark gray finish" that I am looking for (came on the car when I bought it).

Sounds like they're planning on getting new tires, and wants the 5th wheel prior, so they can buy all new tires.
From my understanding anywho!

Tai - I would search local Craigslist, Facebook market place if you want to just pickup. Like Sarang mentioned, ebay would have them as well.

Yes, I want one extra wheel so I can have 5 matching so that when I get my new tires, the spare matches.
I've looked on Ebay, I just can't find anyone selling this exact one other than sets of 4. I'll look on the other sites too. Thank you!
I'm excited to finally start my upgrades that I've been planning for so long!

i wonder how many guys who have a full size, matching spare have actually had to use it?
I’d rather not wait until I need it to get it😂 I have a lift and bigger tires, so the donut spare that came with the car will no longer work. I don’t want to be stranded on a back road with no reception and no spare😂

Flats only happen when you least expect them and when it is most inconvenient. If you dont get the full size spare, you will have a flat in no time. If you do get the full size spare you probably will never have a flat. Just Murphy's Law.
That's exactly it! I'd rather have it and never need it than not have it and need it. I think I may have found one that will work. Why was one matching wheel the hardest part of my build to find? Haha

well the car is equipped with a spare and i have a AAA card :cool:

but yeah if i spent a lot of time off road in remote areas i would want a full size spare and a different jack
AAA Card isn't going to do anything for me when I'm off grid :) Although that would be the cheaper option!

you probably know some of the most heavily modified vehicles on the road never see the dirt :ROFLMAO:
At least they look cool, right! I actually work in the Overland Industry and love to off-road and camp. I'm a bit limited with my stock Crosstrek right now, but my upcoming lift, tires, and other mods will help a little. I have a custom sleeper system in the Crosstrek that allows me and my 6'2 boyfriend to sleep comfortably in there :)

Working in the industry I see a ton of glam builds that never see dirt. But hey, at least they look cool 😂 Fortunately mine will not be like that!
