Spare Tyres for the Gibb River Road
We are heading to the Kimberley in May, exploring Gibb River Road etc. and have a question about spare tyres. We intend to have All Terrain tyres and carry two spares. But do we need two spare wheels or just a second spare tyre?
We would need help to get the second spare onto the wheel rim if we needed it. How easy is it to get this help? We thought we would carry a second wheel, but the rims on our vehicle are around $700 each, so we are thinking about just carrying the second spare tyre without the rim.
We are careful drivers and will let the pressure down etc.
We have found your "Destination Kimberly" fantastic!! Thanks
