Spare Tire: biggest size?
 
anyone know the dimensions of the spare tire? 18 X ?
and what's the biggest tire size/rim anyone has been able to fit into the well.

Wanting to replace the cheesy spare with a real 5th tire, but want to see what others have been able to fit in there. Tx.

I plan to use the 265/65/18 size (31.5" diameter) on my new Overland and understand that this tire will also fit in the spare compartment (presumably on the spare rim) and still allow the lid to close fully. Larger sizes are problematic, but others may have different input. There are other threads here that discuss this issue.

I THINK the spare rim is 18x7 or 18x6.5. I replaced mine recently with an 18x8 steelie with 265/65 tires and they fit tight.. but they do fit!

chibianh, with the wider spare rim, are you still able to fit the jack back in the spare compartment in the same fashion without problems?
