Is this a standard item on the V6 Sport? If not, does toyota offer this as an add-on option...how much does it cost? What does the spare cover look like if its not the hard shell?

Hard shell covers painted to match the vehicle are standard on all 2006 US RAVs. The "Limited" version is a two piece cover (front and back) that snap/buckle together... allowing the outer cover to be LOCKED on. The base and sport models has a hard outer cover that's held on by an elastic/vinyl band (very tight fit).

Does anyone know if the Limited Hard-shell will fit on the 18" wheels on the Sport? I might want to see if I could get one someday.

Thanks flyingn

I knew I would get an answer (maybe one I didn't like but an answer nonetheless) on RAV4World.

Having read your posts, you seem to have a lot of info on the RAV4, along with many other people on this site. Toyota should set up a Q&A site and hire all of you to run it.

Why wouldn't the Limited spare tire shell NOT fit? The over-all diameter of the 17" and 18" tire packages are within a 1/2".

Consider the fact that both the base and sport models come with the same spare cover. You guys already know the wheel sizes between the 2.

What may be more important is the aspect ratio of the tires and the offset of the rims between the two 4.3 models. I would say that someone will have to take a chance and see whether it will fit or not.

Back when the 4.2 RAVs were first released, I really liked the hard spare tire cover. I took the chance and bought one from the dealer, and luckily the wheel/tire combo between the 4.1 and 4.2 were similar. :D
