Full size spares are usually the same tire that is on the truck when you buy it. Just check it for dry rot, cracks and all that before trying to log a bunch of miles on it

I once, drove on my spare for 3 months, so I think you should be good as long as there is not cracks and rot like others have stated.

You will be fine. I've seen people drive a long time on temporary spares, so a full size spare will be fine.
