    You could carry a single wheel size and a tire that would get you down the road if needed.

    Why's that matter? Spare just needs to clear the brakes and have the same bolt pattern.

    You shouldn't run tires of different sizes on a limited slip rear.

    So a 19" spare might rub on the front or an 18" spare might jack up your diff. What to do...

    They're only .7" difference in diameter front to back. I wouldn't think that would be a huge issue for limited spare duty. But oh well.

    One tire spinning faster than the other on a unit that is designed to force both tires to spin at the same rate isn't going to work out well.

    Less noise too with smaller tires. No spare tire now? runflat tires and those don't ride comfortable.
