lost a shoe, got to run a smaller tire for a couple weeks

I picked up a 95 YJ a couple weeks ago and the tires were almost shot and I lost one a couple days ago. The spare is a 30x9.5x15 and the tires on the jeeo were 31x10.5x15 is this gonna cause any trouble with the rear end? should I put it on the front? I have to run it for a couple eweks until I can afford a replacement

Ya, put the small one on the front.

Check your local craigslist in the mean time.

Good luck.

I hear you. That sucks a wet mop.

Have you tried any of the used tire places in your area? I've had some luck in the past doing that.
