285/75/17 spare

Recommended Posts

For those of you running a 285/75/17 (or larger) tire, what do you do for a spare? Im about to pull the trigger on a set but I need to be able to carry a spare. There is only a hair over 33' between the frame rails, not quite enough. I'm thinking I may scab in a few pieces of angle iron the same depth of the frame rail so that the spare rests flat against the frame and the angle, but that also means it will now be hanging down 3 to 4" lower. Just curious if you guys have come up with any other solutions.JR

A 285/75 is about 1/2" taller, it's just not going to fit between the frame rails. I'm on the fence about doing what I had mentioned in my 1st post or just finding a used 285/70/17 for a spare. They are much more common but if I ever got a flat on the rear I would have to swap a good one to the rear then put the spare on the front. I would much rather have a matching spare if at all possible.JR
