I think Im going to. I will buy a rim and tire to fit the fronts and im sure it will work in the back in a pinch. Im really not liking the idea of not having a spare with our midwestern pavement holes.

You'll need a jack and lug wrench, too. You gonna carry all that in the cargo bed?

Bought one each 19" and 20" rim and tire as spares. Have used the 20" twice for flats. Fortunately the flats were at home, and I called 1800-come-and-change-it in lieu of being towed by Roadside Service.

Spare Tire

Something else to remember is that putting a 19 " wheel on the back could cause a problem with the rear anti lock brakes and would also be hard on the posi traction differential if the truck were driven any distance.

In an emergency, a 19" spare seems a great idea. Like other sizes, does anyone make a skinny spare in the 19" size?

It would look cheesy, but...

What about using a standard trailblazer wheel (17") with a tire that closely matches the outer diameter of the 19" wheel. Yeah, it wouldn't look great, but trailblazer wheels are much easier to come by.
