Spare tire

Postby underscore » Wed Jun 11, 2014 8:05 pm

If you have to run a spare tire that is mismatched for whatever reason, which end of the car is it best to have it on? With the factory open front, viscous centre and torsen lsd rear I'm inclined to think the front? I'm more worried about potential damage to the rear torsen than the centre since I've got an upgraded spare from Mario sitting on the shelf.

If it were me, I'd put it on the front. The open diff up front will tolerate the mismatch better than the torsen in the rear. I would also try to get the right size on there ASAP.
