I don't think you will be able to.

I don't know about newer trucks but my '96, I could not even fit a 30/9.50 under it.

Since you didn't specify I'm going to assume your question is pertaining to having a 32" spare...

Answers vary. Some will say they have done it, some will say they have tried and failed. If I were you, I would take a 32" tire, or ask the shop you're buying from to borrow one, and try and see how it fits.

I have a 33" tire under my bed. It doesnt fit perfectly in the frame rails but it still fits under the truck.

he has a hitch. my advice is to keep the best one of the tires you already have, put it on a rim and keep it as a spare.

yeah if it was me i would get like the largest tire that i could squeeze in there, it will be big enough to run you home, then you can get your normal tire fixed and throw it back under.

this is very true, and being aware of where you are, warehouses and things like that have a lot of nails, and being close to camp sites and things like that, ummmmm but yeah tires can help.
