You live with the mismatch up front until you get home.
14/15 is not relevant. it's about OD.
If it's harmful to the rear end, and only harder on wear on the front??
I would match the rear, and not go flying down the highway if you get a flat in the front??
Dude are we really going to be like this? When someone staggers the wheel sizes the general assumption is the OD is going to be different because they are messing with tire sizes to achieve a specific look. You're right the OD is the significant issue but why would he be asking if it wasn't different? Man did I piss in your Cheerios or something
I chose to carry a spare the same OD (happy Scott?) as the rear tires. If the front went flat I was more willing to deal with the pull, wear etc then risk the rear end damage.
I say find a 15" spare, get it. The thing should get ya off the highway and to the nearest parking lot where you can get help fixing the tire that went flat properly.
Not drive home for miles.
No problem! I'll add lol. Just saying it's not a complicated decision. You were right about rear od.
The 14/15 comment was more 'in general' in nature. That doesn't matter. a 215/60/15 & 255/60/15 combo has the same problem
Don't make me jinx another brake line
you sonofa%&^@$%^!#$@% lol
Buy a new set of 5 matching tires/wheels
Unless you have the same tire height front and rear - a spare tire is a waste of time/money at least 50% of the time. And if the spare tire is old - it's a waste of money 98% of the time.
I don't have a spare tire in any of my toy cars. Now I have a lot more trunk space!
I can't mount a 275/40/17 on the front and the 235/45/17 won't match up on the rear. Not even sure that a 275/40/17 would even fit in the trunk...
Hey Brian.....dig up one of those cans in the backyard and buy a pair of wheels and tires. LOL (I might see you in mid Jan.)
