Default spare tire for 03 level II????????

ok so i got to thinking i never looked at my spare tire under it. like actully looked at the size and all. so i go look and it's a 16 inch rim and a 245 tire. ok now i know the level II comes with 15 inch alcoas and 31/10.50/15 inch tires. am i missing something here did ford actully give me a 245 16 inch tire? where i would never have any use for it?

Did you buy the truck brand new?

If not maybe some one just threw a bigger tire under there.

Maybe ford just puts one tire on all vehicles to save cost of putting 2 different ones on

Well you could use it be for a short amount of time.

I would just get a 32" tire for a spare. I dont think you can fit a 33" up there.

The only consistent thing about Ford is their inconsistency.

My stock spare was just like yours. I actually used it for a week while I waited for a replacement tire to come in. Probably put about 400 miles on it. It didn't mess anything up, only had it in 2wd while using it, but it still worked fine as a spare. I would leave it on there, until you get a full size spare. IMO, it's better to have something than nothing.

Been through this one before. Don't understand why they don't put the proper tire under there.
