CHICAGO - Spare tire theft is becoming an increasing problem for auto dealerships and fleets who own SUVs, pickups, and vans. For vehicles with a spare tire attached to the undercarriage vehicles, SPARE SHIELD (U.S. PATENT PENDING 12/362,172) can save you hundreds of dollars in replacement and repairs, according to the manufacturer.

In less than 30 seconds, a potential thief can cut the cable or chain that attaches your spare tire to your vehicle.
