Who really has a spare tire with all of our lifted or "to be lifted" trucks driving around?
I have been wanting to mildly lift my truck but have been struggling to maintain the 33" tire limit to stay within my spare limitation (my spare is a lt305/70R16)
My truck with that mild 3" lift would probably look best with 35x13.5x18 or 20
but then I wonder if I could shoot myself in the foot for not having a spare.
Do we really need them - I mean with our tires rated heavy duty, heavy ply's, heavy capacity, and oversized (most of us) carrying a spare that meets our size is kind of not possible.
I dont know about you - but I need the space in my bed - no room for a 33' or 35" or whatever spare smacking around in there. If it wont fit under the bed - where to then - or simply why carry it? Havent needed it yet - then again - when you do need it - how grateful you are that you have it. Kind of like before i put a generator in my house - I'd loose power every time the wind blew more then 20mph. But since I put in a generator - the power has never gone out - including during storms and hurricanes. Now if I get rid of the generator - sure as that stuff - the powers going to go out!
