    Default spare tire

    I have an 07 classic sierra. I put 305/55/20 on it. Has anyone here put either the same size as a spare underneath or at least put a spare that is the same height?
    I'm gonna start towing a 30ft camping trailer and would prefer to have a spare that is at least the same height as my regular tires just in case something were to happen.

    When I bought my new tires I went from 265/70/17 (almost 32") to 285/75/17 (almost 34") I bought 5 so I would have a spare, I figured not much good to have a set of tires that if I end up with a flat I can't change.

    Where did you put your spare though? Did it fit underneath the bed where the original is?

    I never tried because the hoist for the under the bed mount was messed up, I just put it in the bed of the truck.

    you can always take one of your wheels off the truck and try it.

    If you guys want to find the right spare tire, or a good and durable GM Truck Parts for your truck, try to research around the marketplace or here in the internet. Finding the right one will really give you more time to evaluate what kind of spare tire or parts you need in case of emergency. In this way, you can less spend on your parts and have a long duration of your products as well as your truck!
