    Mainly just day or weekend trips somewhere to have a bit of fun on some rocky trails and hills. Won't have the setup to do any real rock climbing or anything crazy like that. I do camp from time to time, but nothing too terribly remote by any means.

    A 255/70/R18 tire diameter is 32.1" and a 285/55/R20 is 32.3" so, not much difference.

    Yep. There's a 1.5" difference between the spare and new setup though so I'll end out replacing it. Might be able to at least keep the rim.

    Ok, I checked a tire size calculator and the diameters I posted in post #32 would be correct for the two tire sizes you referenced. Only .2" inches difference between the two.

    Great minds! What I didn't like about my spare was the "not for highway use" stamp on the spare tire. I thought, as long as I am getting a new spare, I might just as well get a matching wheel too but I could just as easily gotten a new 255/70/R18 tire for the spare steel rim.

    Nope. My spare was a 255/70/R18 and my tires were/are 285/55/R20. But there is only a .2" diameter difference in the two. My spare was marked "not for highway use" which I couldn't live with. Very much an emergency use only spare and not to exceed 50mph....

    I have a 5th spare that I rotate in. I put a sensor in it and everytime I rotate, my light stays on for about 10 miles and goes out.

    Unless you dropped the spare and looked on both sides of the tire, it may be stamped on the other side of it. I believe I had the same spare manufacturer as you...

    Just looked under AGAIN, mine's a BD too. Excuse Mich in previous posts, my stocks were originally BD HT's.

    Ok Ron, cut it out! (steps out to drop spare... kidding)

    Priced out an extra NRG 295/70R18 on Method Mesh, would be $700+tx, ouch

    Didn't really shop around, I'm in Canada so it would be 1010tire and 4x4WheelParts I'm going off of. A used 295/70R18 I'm guessing would probably be $150 installed on my steely.

    Edit: I'd probably get a deal off my buddy who owns a custom rim shop, maybe save $100 if exact 5th.

    One thing to keep in mind......if your spare is fairly close in height to your good tire on the rear, you can air down one of them to equalize height between the two. Just sayin. It's only temporary till you get home.

    What would you consider hard off-roading? What may be hard to me might seem like a Tuesday morning drive to work for you.

    Alright, for all of you who do the 5-wheel rotation thing, is there a specific rotation pattern you follow, and how often do you rotate? I do a lot of offroading and have upgraded to larger tires, so I want to include the spare tire in my rotation for reasons mentioned previously in this thread.

    This is interesting about your TPMS light. I wonder if the TPMS system is only monitoring four of the five tires, which I've read is how it works. So that as long as the four tires it's monitoring are within range, and are properly inflated (even if one of them happens to be mounted in the spare tire location), the TPMS system is happy.

    On a 2018+ with the 4 tire pressure readings on the dash is it best to put a TPMS sensor in the spare if doing a 5 tire rotation? Would the spare TPMS sensor screw up the dash display?

    No. The TPMS in the spare won’t affect it because the truck only monitors 4 of them. But if you rotate tires, you’ll have to get it reprogrammed to the 4 tires on the ground. I have 5 TPMS but only 4 are being monitored. I’m not even sure which tire is the one turned off right now but I know it’s one of the 4 on the truck. Not a big deal to me because I air up/down so often I’ll know if I have a slow leak. And when I’m offroad and aired down, the light is on anyways so it won’t tell me if I have a flat anyways. If I knew this when I bought my tires, I wouldn’t have bought the fifth TPMS.
