New guy 99 Ranger xlt I have a problem no spare tire key.

First truck i ever owned, i hope its a reliable truck, cause my intrepid was a lemon lol.
3.0L V6 automatic 4 door model, 97k miles. Ive owned it for about 4 months.
Just bought new tires today general altimax RT.

But I have a problem, the spare tire is the original firestone wilderness that was recalled. But i cant change it, cause i need a key to get this lock out, and i dont have a key. I want to drill this thing out, of the easiest way to take it out, and have no lock. If i were to drill it out, how long are these things?

any help would be great.

Shane

Welcome to the site. I drilled mine out because I also didn't have a key for it. You don't need to worry because the thing you have to turn to lower the spare is pretty far in that hole so just give it hell and drill it out haha
