Hi Jake.

I bought a Shogun Diamond which is fitted with 20" wheels shod with 255/50/R20 rotational Tyres. However, the Spare appears to be a different style alloy fitted with a 265/65/R17 Tyre?

Expert:  Jake replied 2 years ago.

There is only a 2% difference in circumference between the 2.

If you need to drive for any extended period on the spare or in 4wd or all wheel drive you will want something less than 1% to be safe and prevent any differential or transfer issues.

The PERFECT size tire for your spare would be 275/60/R17
