My Stealth Performance is exactly the same. Four 22” General Grabbers and an 18” Crosswind A/T spare.

Got it - yes on all accounts. I had a typo on the 4 running tires and thanks to you all I now know the spare is doable if I need it :)

Its a spare tire, its made to get you home, not to be match/pretty. You should then complain that its on a steel wheel instead of a matching wheel........

I agree with these statements. However, even if you buy the same size tires but from different manufacturers, the outside diameter will be different.

Accordingly, it is always advisable to use the spare on the non-driving axle. So if you have a flat in the rear, put a front tire in place of the flat and put the spare on the front axle (disengage the 4WD). This is especially important if you are towing or going to drive a long distance on the highway.

So how do you do this on the side of the road with the one crppy jack in the car? lol. I know what you are saying, but we usually never have a spare jack when the tire goes down...

You can ask the road side assistance folks to do that for you. Or you have to do it twice. Put the spare on the front location, then put the front on the rear.

Again, no need to do it under normal situations (short distance), but you will hear the rear differential whine pretty loudly with the spare.

Roadside Assistance? lol. I live in the middle of nowhere, they would get here 3 hours after I swapped the spare on and went on with my life!
