Re: Compact vs Full Size Spare TIre

That's a sad story, I hope it turned out with a happy ending. Christmas Eve...I guess there's never a good time, though.

So this seems to be falling into place. The back only spare is a Summit issue with the "compact" tire and the "full size" spare on the Overland is good for front and back...

This seems to be a bit of an oversight on some designer's part. I bet a lot of people discover this roadside!?

Yeah...kinda annoying on Xmas eve. The biggest surprise was the cost of the pirelli run flats. $599 Aussie each. Merry Xmas to me.

Yeah...they needed a deeper wheel space for the width of the pirelli's, but I get that would not work out one way or another for cost or practical reasons - either a more shallow boot area or deeper wheel well...either way more cost for jeep for modifications that would end up costing us more. There are still more positives than negatives on the SRT
