Hey I wanted to see if anyone know thread and length on the screw that holds down the full size spare?

Reason I ask I put a stock Trailhawk wheel with Falken A/T Wild Peak and now the screw length is too short.

I read somewhere we can flip wheel get space and use smaller screw.

Renegade TrailHawk uses M8 1.25 X ? not sure if same on 2018 Compass.

Shorter length on Renegade TrailHawk needs M8 1.25 X 50 and you flip the spare and get room

I read on our forum they flipped the spare same way on Compass TrailHawk and it worked.

I just tested seems it would.

Just need to confirm size and length of bolt.

Thanks ahead of time.

Hi,
I used a bolt M8x1.25 L=80mm with original washer.
Fits good.
Other guys don't use a bolt at all, nothing happens they say...
But I think it is not safe.
Anyway, you get a bigger space in the trunk, really.

Just drive to a hardware store, walk in with the stock bolt and tell them you want that but X inches longer.

Most have a bolt size/thread checker somewhere in the hardware isle. Lots of parts stores like o'reily has them too.
