I have a '99 ranger stepside (just got it a short time ago) and have all sort of details to take care of. One detail is the spare tire. Or rather, lack of a spare tire. I'm running 225/70/15's all the way around. Today I couldn't pass up a deal on a "donut" and went ahead a bought it.
(I do a lot of impulse buying - wives, scooters, cars, trucks - anything expensive) Just kidding about the wives, but everything else is pretty much true. Back to the subject at hand: The donut is the correct bolt pattern - 4.5 - but the diameter is 16. Will this thing work for an emergency spare? I'm not planning on ever using it, but don't feel comfortable with no spare at all. BTW, it is a 2WD. Thanks for wading thru this, and any advice will be greatly appreciated. Bill
