Spare Tire

My TJ has 31's but the spare is a 215R15.

Curious to know if there are any issues if I ever had to use the spare
(only short and temporary of course)

have only the dana 30 and 35.

and I'm not using a piece of wood as a spare.... LOL ...

I hate improper sized spare tires. just go buy a 31'' spare.

Its improper, and shouldn't be done.

as long as you don't go in 4WD, and don't have a LSD you should be fine.

Its one of my pet peeves.

Strangely when I bought my jeep it had a 30'' spare (flat), and 31'' tires on the ground.
within a cpl months I had a sidewall fail on one of the 31's so I put 5 new BFG's on it (stuck with the 31'' size due to me being too cheap to buy a lift.)

I'm so much happier with it since the tire swap. I say proper spare tire, or no spare tire.
