    What does everyone have for a spare tire if you upgraded your size? Did you buy 5 new tires or did you buy 1 used one the same size and did not care about what kind of tread was on it?

    left the stock one up under there, if you really need it one stock tire and 3 35's will get you down the road better than a flat lol

    I thought I read somewhere having one small tire and one larger tire on a 4x4 is not good for the gears.

    When I bought my 17" BBS wheels I purchased a steel 17" Toyota wheel from Ebay and bought another same size 17" tire. Running different size tires on the same axle isn't good for the gears.

    If you have your locker on, that's true. If you have an open diff (or locker turned off) then it isn't any different than driving around a corner from the gears perspective.
