Spare Tire size

If I go with larger tires dose the spare need to match for the BLD & Stability Control to function Correctly? How big of a tire difference wold it take for the BLD to start applying brake to the larger tire?

The ESP/BDS/BLD aren't the problem--

It's the differential/spiders gears on the same axle, shouldn't be "confused" with different size tires, they've been known to go "BOOM"-from the different RPMs introduced-

Spare should be exact same size in diameter--width can give a little, but diameter should be the same-

Strictly for safety purposes the spare should be included in the tire rotations and OF THE SAME MFG-

No you shouldn't JUST GET 4 NOW and plan on updating "LATER", I won't give any acceptable size differences--to chancey-

Good luck
