Question for those with 20" wheels

I was just curious if your spare was a 20" as well with the same model tire as the other 4. The reason that I ask is because on my truck I have the 20" with the Goodyear At's and my spare is an 18" with the Contenental all season. Is this right or do I need to go chew on the dealer. Thanks, Mike

weird... I just have the 17's with 265's on my '06, but my spare is also a 17" with the same size and same BFG tire as the other four. Only difference is my spare doesn't have raised white lettering.

you guys might wanna make sure your spare is the same diameter as your other tires. You could really chew up your diff if it isn't.

I am going to go back and talk to my dealer because I agree that they should all be the same size, you have these limited slip and traction contrll diiffs and a different size spare could really screw things up. Thanks for all the opinions. Mike

The wheel size makes no difference at all...the outside diameter of the tire is all that matters. I have the OEM 20's and my spare is an 18" with a Continental tire. The reason that the person with the 17" rims also has a 17" spare is because the 17" whel is the smallest that will fit around the brake rotors. If you want a matching spare, you will have to buy a wheel and tire from the dealer. have fun with that!

The Diameter of the TIRE, not the rim size is the most important thing.

I have 20's and my spare is an 18" as well. Remeber that a spare is JUST that, not really meant to run over 50 miles before getting changed. We redneck truck owners sometimes think that it is our own personal high performance tire store, and make a spare do something it is not meant to do!
