Default '97 spare tire

Hey everyone,

what size tire can i fit under the bed of the truck as a spare? Right now I have what looks like a full size tire as a spare but I can't seem to fit it in the carriage under the bed, so its just chained up inside the bed. I don't know the size precisely. Did the 1997 come with a donut or smaller sized tire or am I able to fit a full size under there?

Thanks for the advice

I figured it out. My assembly was rusted stiff so the swing bar was stuck in one position not allowing the tire to slide in.
