One of the reasons we went with the HG Adventure series is that the strap should make it fast to pull the spare, and we didn’t have to worry about wheel backspacing or bolt patterns. But making the tire fast to remove for us also means that it could be almost too easy for anyone to make off with. So the company includes a cable, and you can use your own lock or the company can provide that as well. One minor thing we didn’t like is the little bit of slop on top of the tire in the strap. Don’t get us wrong, that tire is in there tight, we just couldn’t get the strap to lay any closer than it does here.
