You can still get those directly from the dealer. Remember that the front and rear use different studs.

And on that note, does anyone know if the spare carrier on the back uses the same stud as the front or rear that Billjohn just mentioned? I'm swapping tires/wheels with another Sami I bought and they're bigger. It'll only fit on the spare carrier if I flip the wheel around facing the tailgate. I'd like to get longer studs for the carrier, but wasn't aware of the difference that Billjohn just mentioned. What's different? And do any aftermarket or parts stores carry longer wheel studs to replace the ones on my carrier so I can have an oversized tire still fit on it without flipping it ugly side out?

The difference is the base. one has a base that has a flat spot on the side. It is not a length difference.

Here is an idea that made sense...
Spare Tire Ext. Mount - iZook
I am not sure if you can still get these from the original manufacturer (Designs of Steel), but you can use it as an idea to make one up (or have it made by a local welder).

The part may no longer be offered for sale(?), but it's still available for viewing on their website at: Spare Tire Extension Mount - Suzuki

Edit: Although there is still an orphan web page for it, that may _NOT_ mean it's still offered for sale.
