Are you going to flip a coin if your spare will be a front or rear wheel? They are different size and the breaks have to fit for the replacement wheel...

I will be getting one to fit the front. Correct me if I'm wrong but I read that the front will fit the back.

One other thing that Ford could have done, and this really would have been a throwback ot the original Boss cars, is an inflatable spare. Since they "gave" us the compressor, a colapsable spare (which still does exist today in other vehicles)would have allowed for a proper size rim, and fit deflated in the existing well.

While I was prepping for a cross country drive in my 2012 Boss, I came across a tire/wheel combo to use as a spare that also can be deflated and fit in the spare tire well. 

 

This is the wheel I used

and this is the tire I used

I know its a bias ply, but I figure its better than nothing at all! fully deflated and squeezed with some bungee cords or a small strap, it fits perfect in the wheel well.

It may fit, but you won't like the results. The driving will be 'memorable' to say the least. Never run a bias with a radial tire, especially on the back. It will do nasty things you'd never imagine. Seriously.

Reminds me of wearing a soccer cleat on one foot and an ice skate on the other. :fear:

Agree too, apparently the radial sidewall will flex and give more when cornering while the bias sidewall is more steadfast. The doughnut spare (not our cars) must be a radial but I don't know, they have hardly any sidewall to flex with other 3 full size tires. Never gave it any thought (good postings). https://www.svtperfo...-front.1055773/
