Also, the Load Range B tire probably doesn't weigh as much as the C tire. And the Destiny's will likely weigh different too. Couldn't this screw up braking too?
If the jeep came stock with Range C tires, then the Range B might not support the rated payload or towing capacity.
What is the spare tire?
That being said, if the previous owner did okay with this setup, you'll probably manage fine too until you end up changing them. But please, when you do, buy an all-new set of 5 tires, including the spare. Give your jeep some love.
I'm sorry the previous owner of your jeep was retarded.
The spare tire is stock wheel with stock tire, very badly worn due to bad toe alignment
The four wheels on the ground are some D window black wheels. I haven't taken them off yet in order to find what brand/model they are. So the spare is basically useless.
Thanks for the info. I will continue driving it but will probably be looking at tires next. Sounds like I could get three tires (FD, FP, spare) and replace the Goodyears and the stock spare with Definity Dakotas, and possibly buy a 5th wheel to replace the spare. Or I could just get two tires for now and continue to have a ghetto spare.
Based on my build sheet this is my stock config:
Full Size Spare Tire
30X9.50R15LTB Wrangler OWL A/T Tires
Goodyear Brand Tires
15X8.0 "CANYON" Aluminum Wheels
Matching Spare Wheel
All Aluminum Wheels
