Default Spare question

I have a 2nd Gen with stock 4th Gen 20" wheels. I want to add a 20" spare but not sure if it will fit in the stock spare location. Has anyone fit a 20" in the stock spare location?

Wheel size isn't as important as tire size. What size is your tire?

Tire size is the stock tire on the 20" wheels, if I remember correctly it might be roughly a 33" tire.

If it's stock, then it's probably a 275, which translates to about 31". But I think even a 33" would fit up under the bed.

275 is the cross sectional width,
has nothing to do with diameter unless you have the aspect ratio

a stock 275/60R20 is 275mm cross sectional width, translates to 10.826" wide
x 60% (60 is aspect ratio) = 6.495" Sidewall height

Sidewall x 2 (top and bottom) = 12.99" + wheel diameter (20" ) = 32.99"


My stock spare is a temporary use 235/85R17
the overall diameter is 32.7" almost the same as a 275/60R20

Some guys were picking up a full size chrome clad 20"
removing the plastic chrome cladding and using that on a 4G





The bore of the center hole is larger on the steel wheel,
(no cladding material in the way)
A chrome clad 20" wheel has the cladding blocking part of the bore and wont work unless you peel off the clad.

So you either need a smaller T,
or get a black steel 20" wheel/spare from a 3G Hemi.

(my 04' had Polished Aluminum 20's and a black steel 20" spare and full sized 275/60R20 good year tire)

Stock tire size will fit. The rim center bore may be too small for the bracket on the cable to fit thru but the tire itself will fit.

My 2013 Longhorn came with a 275 60R20 spare on a 20" black steel wheel.
