    i have a 60 with 2 lpg tanks where the spare tyre used to get kept, the car has a tyre carrier on the back but the design is crap cos it ads about half a meter to the back of the car. does anyone have any good ideas about where to stick a spare tyre.

    A good quality bumper/tire carrier is your best bet. I have mine on the roof rack and its a pain in the ass to deal with and adds to your center of gravity.

    The next option is in the interior, but that takes up cargo space if you do any long runs or camping trips....

    I would either get a cargo mat from spector offroad and strap the tire down in the back or spend a few hundred and get a Thule roof rack and throw it up there.

    If your in OZ go to a junk yard and get a bumper off a wreck. ARB made them for a while, Kaymar makes them now.

    You are in OZ? didn't I read that on another post?
