    My '73 has 14 inch rims in the front and 15 in the rear. How do you deal with carrying a spare tire?

    If you mismatch the tires on a limited slip axle for and extended period of time it will cause premature failure due to the constant "slipping"

    Yes, get a spare the same OD as the rest tires.

    His original post implies the front and rear have different OD and that's his dilemma, what size. :)
