Hello Everybody...

I have a '99 XLT with 233K and a new set of Continental Contitrac tires. I got new tires because I discovered one of my BFG A/T's had gone flat. This led me to the discovery that I no longer had a spare. The wire from the bed-spare-tire-carriage-assembly was just dangling. The tire sellers told me it had been cut as opposed to being worn away by weather or other.

I wonder.....

1. In my complex there are a variety of other Rangers that are not in as good a shape as mine. If I had a suspect in mind, is there a way to get a VIN from a rim? Is there any way to prove that my old rim is on one of these clunkers out in the parking lot?

2. Continental - good tire? Good choice? $433 for 4 new tires and a new rim for a spare.... :-(

Thanks!

Welcome! Only kind of # on the rim would be stickers from the factory I believe, unless someone put there own serial # on the rims....kinda doubtful. I have heard of continentals, I couldn't tell you good or bad though
