I'm sure at least some of you have had to change a tire on your truck. Do all the new trucks have the "Temporary Use", 17" spare?
There's more rubber in a condom than on those things. Hardly any tread. Doesn't look like there is enough room for anything else though.

Well at least I know I'm not the only one with a dinky spare.
I never even thought to check to see if the tire sizes were all the same when I looked over the buyers sheet.

It is just .....Fiat...Ram...Dodge's way cutting cost! I was pretty bummed at the STEALERSHIP when I bought my '09 Ram BigHorn Hemi and noticed that I had a Wimpy Spare instead of a real spare!

Oh well, the spare is for an emergency and to get us to the tire store anyways lol!!!

20"?? How???
I thought all since 09 were alike. There is no way a full size will fit under mine...at least it doesn't look like it's even close. The 17" doesn't have 1.5" clearance.
