Spare Tire Gouge

Greetings. Thought I'd share a spare tire issue. Pulled my spare down to inspect it. First time I looked at it since purchasing unit at the end of April. Found a gouge in the sidewall. Sent pic and info to Tredit through the their warranty submission website. They were very responsive. Tire is covered under warranty. They are sending me a check for the tire value. I replaced the spare with a Hercules S 901 G rated tire. Also found the bar imprints on the sidewall due to the mounting system. I will be adding a piece of plywood to the mount so the new tire will rest on that instead of the bars

I've heard of several people who put pool noodle or pipe wrap in there to protect the spare as well. Sometimes it seems just running it up too tight is the problem.
