Stock Underbed Spare Tire Carrier (sizing)
As my sig says, I have 32x11.50R15 tires. I currently have the OEM stock tire. I desire a real spare that will fit under the bed.
I've read that a 31" tire fits under the bed. I've also read that a 32" tire w/ 50% tread fits under the bed. Using a spare like this I would need to deflate the opposite tire to level out the truck.
I'm thinking of getting a new 32" tire and using that as my spare. Since it wont fit in the spare tire spots, I figure I can just deflate it to the 31" tire size and shove it under the bed. The benefit to this would be that if I get a spare, I could drive to the nearest gas station and pump air into the tires and be at 100%. Or, on planned offroading adventures, I could bring a portable tire inflator with me.
What do you guys think of this?
Oh yeah, can my stock jack still extend enough to lift my truck off the tires?
