flat tire pulls with spare

ok so last night i went out to my jeep and say that my front drivers side tire was flat luckilly it was the front since my spare wont fit on the back ( 33x13 on stock rim.. yeah... lol ) so i was driving it today and when i get on the brakes it pulls hard to the right could this be because of the back spacing being different or what? thank

Yes that would cause pull, because the steering axis isn't in the center of the wheel. So both front wheels are always pulling backward (in RWD mode). The stock wheel, because it sticks out less, has less leverage than the aftermarket one
