    Do you guys have the same size spare just in case?
    Diffs don't like a smaller tire on the same axle.
    I'm probably going to go with a cheap same size tire for a spare if I go bigger.

    Check with your local tire shops and local auto shops - or maybe even a 4WD shop. They might have used tires available in the size you're looking for.

    I have a 35x12.50 M/T on my jeep that I bought used from a tire shop locally. Only cost me like $5. Had it mounted on an old cheap steal wheel and I'm good to go. The tire just barely passes inspection in terms of tread, but whatta I care? I haven't used it in 5 years!
