Received mine and had it mounted on the spare. Fits in the spare compartment just fine. Thanks for the heads up on these spares.I bought this one for my spare (245/70r18) 245 70 18 GOODYEAR SPARE - New Takeoff 245/70/18 - Spare for 275/65/18 GOODYEAR | eBay
Currently running stock sized Defenders and Blizzaks and both sets are on their last leg, so upsizing this spring and will mount the new spare then when I switch to 265/65r18. The calculators state that 245/70r18 is 31.5", yet the seller (9 still available) state they're off trucks that had 275/65r18's which is 32.1". Though, if those were 2wd capable vehicles, it wouldn't make a difference.
Net is ... at $31.50 a tire shipped, I'll take the chance. Believe the tire had a manufacture date of 32 week of 2019 on the one I received.
Yes both buckets fit. You need to give them a little pressure to fit exactly right but not a big deal. I didn't measure it against the 265/65s.
Did you see my post (#19)? I don’t try to close it b/c it puts more pressure on it than I’d like, but at 24 psi, it did close.Thanks - thinking 265/65/18 on the TG for the spare only and the rest RG but also want to fit the spare properly in the boot! Don’t want to go to a full road tire just in case I get a flat in the bush and need something a bit more robust
Check Nitto’s site and see what the width measurements say. As long as it isn’t a wider tire, it may work a little better. It may still have to be aired down though, if you want the lid to closed.Thanks yes - I did check that out. I’m think I’m keen on getting a decent fit. The TG don’t have those side lugs so maybe they’ll fit a bit more easier. What do you reckon?
