What worries me is the wheel is still out there on the side of the carpool and no real way to grab it.

Here is the rim. I was wise enough to bring 2 spares as they are not the same size. I was wise enough to bring plant of tools and the cars jack. I was dumb enough to forget the extended lugs needed for the spare wheels. wife is on her way.
