Donut...?

Just bought a new 2010 a couple weeks ago and just noticed now that the spare is a smaller 235/50/16. Is this usual for Rangers? It seems odd and crappy that a 4x4 truck would come with a donut for a spare.

Fullsize spares are always a factory an option. Never standard except on luxury cars and huge trucks like F-250 and bigger.

Lame on Ford's part. The girlfriend's baseline Jetta came with a fullsize spare. On the bright side, at least I'm not driving a VW
