I know the height is about the same with aftermarket wheels, but can you still put the spare tire on?


Has anyone had to ride on their 22 or 24's and one donut?

I road on a little ass donut and 20s couple months ago. I canít imagine doing that with 22s or 24s. I traveled a couple miles so it wasnít that bad.

Maybe little donut isnt correct. Isn't the spare tire the same size as the stock wheels?

I was just thinking about this, because I am taking a little trip up to NY tonight....and thought, what happens if I blow a tire on my 22's?

oh my bad. I guess it would be fine since they are about the same size.

You will have no problem running your truck with a spare as long as you didn't upgrade your brakes to a larger size.

I had a flat tire last week on my 22's and had the spare put on. I had no problem at all. The tires were so close in height that it didn't matter. The air-ride suspension also made the Escalade level while I was driving. You will be completely fine while on your 22's. Good luck.

Thanks.

Had this happen to me. Had to rotate the rear tire to the front then put the spare on the rear. PITA!!!

I understand. Only works if you didn't upgrade your rear brakes too.

It's not something you think about when you buy your rims.
