How do you use the spare tire mount in a silverado?
Get your jack handle out from under your back seat ( that's where mine is ) and there is a hole in the rear bumper probably on the right side by the licence plate. Put it in that hole and you will find a place for the end of the jack handle. It is @ a slight angle. Turn the jack handle counter clockwise to lower your spare tire to the ground and clockwise to raise it back in place. Jef

I have a 2005 Silverado that I'm installing a hitch on. I tried lowering the tire using the crank provided, and it only dropped a few inches. After a few tries, and a few choi…ce words, I broke down and looked at the manual. Check out your owners manual for a description on how to remove your tire. I finally used my air ratchet, and unbolted the $@#!# thing, and removed the whole assembly, and threw it in the back of my truck. I may try some WD-40, or some other penetrating oil to free it up. I really don't want a spare tire sliding around in my truck bed.
In the jack kit there is a rod that inserts under cap on bumper by license plate. You might have to have someone wiggle tube under the truck to get it to snap in. 5-6 cranks …it is down.
Use the Square end of the jank crank rod. I had the same problem
Not on mini-rim. Need std. sized rim

Yes and no. If it isn't too much different then you can use it short term on a non-drive axle. In other words, put it on the front if your car is a rear wheel drive or put it …on the back if your car is front wheel drive.
Yes it can, and in fact that is what you would want to use as a spare tire. Otherwise the spare would only be good for one side of the car.
Most are limited to about 50 miles. Most are limited to about 50 miles.
If you get a flat out in the bundu, what are you gonna do without it.
If you are referring to how to wind the cable back up into the spare tire well, there are clear instructions on how to do this located in both the owners manual AND on a deca…l in the rear compartment of the vehicle where the jack tools are located. There is a small opening covered by a plastic trim flap in the rear deck in the tailgate area. Insert the portion of the jack handle part into this hole until it contacts the winding mechanism and then turn the handle clockwise until the cable is retracted.
Usually a spare tire is as good for a short time as a normal tire but of coarse change as soon as u can
