Any need to carry spare??

I lifted my 04 CC 6.5 inches and running 37 inch Toyo MTs. Is there any need to carry the stock 31.5 spare around? Would it even touch the ground? Would truck drive with limited slip rear? Thanks

I would look into a full size spare or at least one closer to the right size. Just in case. And I would bet it still touches the ground and it would move even with the limited slip just run the chance of burning it up.

I would definitely carry a spare. When I was running 37s on my truck, I had one go out on me and that little stock spare is what got me home.

That's the best solution if your not going to carry the same size tire as a spare. If you put a smaller tire on the rear and drive several miles you'll turn your limited slip into crap.

This.

I decided that was too much of a PITA so I bought a full size spare.
