And it's a spare - it doesn't have to be pretty. Buy a used tire off Craigslist or a local tire shop. Be sure it has at least halftread life and is in good condition, of course, but it's just to get you rolling again should you need it.


YUPPP... my spare has JUST enough life to get me to a local shop in case of an emergency.... i know its not the besttttt way of doing things but its good enough to hold me off untill i get my 285s

How pissed would you be of you destroy a diff just to save $50 by not buying a full size spare?

So while we are on this topic, could you run a 255/75 spare when the other 4 are 285/70?

You can run whatever spare size you want; but when you need that spare your always gonna be best served w/ a FULL size spare - period.

FYI, an offload park will not let you in without a full size spare
