Need help from fellow Trailhawk Jeepers!

I purchased a 2016 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk about 8 months ago and I love it. Ive only had one problem with it and it was the radiator but thankfully the warranty covered it.

My problem is actually related to the spare tire. When I purchased my Jeep Renegade, I am 99.9% positive my TH came with a full spare and a TH wheel, however, I opened my truck today to vacuum the back and noticed I have a worn out, beat up spare with a black wheel. The only thing I can think of is that the Dealership swapped my tire, but I don't know why. I've taken it to service twice, once for the radiator and the other for an oil change.

To make my story short, that the dealership basically told me that I'm lying. (Unfortunately, I never took a picture of the spare when I purchased my Jeep, I mean, who does) The manager at my nearest Jeep dealership, told me that the Renegades have never had a TH wheel in the spare tire. However, when I left the place I googled and saw a couple pictures of a full TH wheel in the spare tire.

I would like to ask all you Jeepers that own a Trailhawk model to post a picture of your spare tire and wheel and also post the year of the Renegade. I want to find out if all TH models come with TH wheel.

(I attached a picture of the ugly used spare they left in my Jeep, they could've at least washed it!)

Is there any way you could post a picture for me? I'm under the assumption that the '15 and '16 TH models came with a matching spare wheel and now the newer '17 and '18s have the black spare rim.

2015 came with full sized matching spare on the TH rims. 2016 and 2017 came with full size spare on a steel wheel or something. I.e. not the pretty rim.

Is there a way to confirm that '16 models did not come with a matching spare? I can almost sware mine did.

Hello mrsig, are you able to put the floor cover down with the wider spare tire?
