35's with a 33" spare?

I got some BFG 35" Mud Terrains last week and I have 1 good 33" Goodyear Wrangler MT/R and was wondering if I just mount it on a crappy rim will it be ok on the truck for a day or two if I happen to get a flat. You know just til I can get a new tire.

Thanks,
Roach

man that would be goofy. idk find a junk 35

the nice thing about a good mud tire is ridding on the road you really should never get a flat. they are so heavy and thick walled its hard to do. since buying a good mud terrain i have never had an issue.

i just wouldn't put it in the back if you have any traction devices it'll screw it up.


if it works to get you home... it works to get you home right?

it would be bad to run a smaller tire in the rear if you have a ls diff also.

yeah just throw it in the back. I have a spare 30" BFG A/T I got for free but I have 31's. its a just in case. Its only going to be on there for a day or two before I'd get a new tire so nothing to worry about. Just put on the front thats all.

his truck is 2wd and has a open diff, so he will be fine with the smaller tire as a spare.
