That sounds like a good idea. You may be able to find someone with just one wheel on ebay to keep the cost down. A 4000lb trailer should be no problem at all for your 4.8.

It should NOT matter since both 275 and 315 (oem tire size) have nearly identical overall rolling diameter.

I agree - the 275 should be more than adequate for a spare...

I'll try to tonight. IIRC it's a 17" spare tire and when I saw it I thought, hey this can't be right for a 4.8is? But it is NOT a mini-spare and I sure hope it isn't some yahoo that owned it before who swapped it out? Don't get me wrong, if it WILL fit I'd rather have that than a mini-spare.

I'll double check when the rig gets home. It's definitely not a 315 hahhaa. It's a 275 with a taller aspect ratio to keep the rolling dia the same so it should not matter.
