Just had a thought.... With the larger tires, the overall tire diameter is 1" taller than stock.
If I use the space-saver spare, will I cause damage from having two different diameter tires on the same axle? :hmm:

Is it AWD? if not then don't worry about it. Don't run it like that any longer than you have to though.

you'll definitely put wear and tear on the diff(s) doing that, yes

Yes. Also I’m guessing the bump in tire size will give you warranty issues if they arise

Oh, actually.... the spare is a T135/80D17... which is already smaller than the stock tire size. :hmm:

So it may not be an issue. Especially for <50 miles @ 50mph

you have probably never sent 1 ft/lb of torque to the rear wheels. If you get a flat just put the spare on the rear temporarily

Ah, that's a good idea. Then just drive it lightly so the fronts do all the work. :nod:

If you had a Tacoma you could carry a full size spare.
