Dought it since the POS spare that is there today hardly fits..
And it's tiny!

Get tire-on-a-can and ditch the spare..
I've upgraded to the 13" PBR brakes so I have no use for mine
so instead of that heavy @ss tire I've got a little can..
Worth at least .00001 on the track! :D

No, it won't, and there isn't much room to make the well bigger.

Yeah I know the tire on a can sucks and makes you
tire guy pretty pissed off but when it's the only choice
it's better than getting a towtruck...

I really should start carrying something like that with me. Right now AAA's tow truck is my back up to the tires on the car and I'm going to be doing a lot of long distance driving in the next month. I quit carrying the spare because I figured there is no way I'm putting it on the back and ripping the **** out of the trac loc and if I can't run it on the back then why bother carrying it at all?

4 Cam Bird... if you have a flat on the back, put the spare on the front and put that wheel on the back. PITA, but you don't tear up a trac-lok or have to wait for a tow. Been there, done that.

That only works if you have the same size tires on the front and rear. I have the same issue with my MN12's.

Here's a pic of my backup:

I was able to have my frame shop do some custom welding to ensure that a full size SC spare will fit in the trunk of my latest project. It fits nicely, though it is at a slight angle due to rear swaybar issues.
