Trailer Wheel/Tire for Spare
Going to sell my old wheels, including the spare to make a set of 5. I'll have to replace the spare with something - thinking a 15" trailer tire.

Rated to 1820lbs, bolt pattern looks like it will line up (5x4.5). The overall tire dimension is 28", which is about 2.5" shorter than what I have on now but hey it's a spare.


Anyone know if this definitely won't work or is a bad idea?

No opinions?

I would not do that. But that's just me. Get a matching spare to whatever you have now

I wouldn't do it. The wheels will spin at different speeds causeing premature wear on your spider gears and crazy steering. Hit up Craigslist for a used tre in your size.
