Default spare tire

im getting new 305 55 20 nitto's put on and i was wondering if anyone has dropped their old spare tire and put a tire the size of a 305 on the truck as a spare tire? will it fit? i travel pretty far everyday for work and i dont want to be stuck on the side of the road with no spare!

It's .2" taller than a stock 275/60/20, but is wider...should work fine!

Wouldn't it be better to leave your OEM full size spare tire under the truck and use it as a spare only when needed?

That's what I was going to suggest too. Just drive it far enough to get the flat tire fixed.

yeah i have another thread about this in wheels and tires. the new rams come with the largest doughnut spare on the planet. you cant mount a stock wheel under the truck the centerbore at the face of the rim is too small to fit the hoist through it. i'm also concerned that getting that wide a tire under the truck would stick out under the bumper and look bad.
