I have a suggestion, make this simple and save money in your pocket.
Buy a new full size tire with rim and put it in your truck, forget that spare tire.
Don't wast time and money.
#28 of 29 Changing tyre sizes
Feb 20, 2012 (12:28 am)
Hello my wife and I brought a second hand 2000 mazda mpv.
It came lowered on 19" rims with 235/35/19.
We are currently having problems with the front inside tyres wearing before the rest of the tyre even if we keep the balance and alignment up to date. We are also having problems with the back rubbing the guards when we hit big bumps.
We were thinking of changing to a 17" wheel and running something like a 225/55/17 tyre to help clear the guards and to keep it looking a bit sporty..Would this help at all any feed back would be appreciated

Hie Farkwa, I happen to have had a problem exactly like yours, lowered mpv sporty look 19 inch rims wearing 235x35x19 tyres very sweet looking but I could not cary more than two passengers at the rear seat bcoz the rear excel would hit the bump stoppers even at small bumps, the ride would be very terrible, I almost sold it for that reason. After thinking of changing the rims and tyres, I realised through a sticker that was written Ti-200 high performance suspension coils and this was my problem for they lowered my mpv for good handling, speed, curving and they were too soft for our rough roads
Solution: I replaced the high performance lowered springs with the original mazda mpv springs and one time ground clearance was back to o.g and the ride on bumpy roads was smooth, can seat full capacity plus laguage without tyres rubbing against the guard , did not change my rims and tyres. I m sure if you change your springs back to the original you won't think of changing your rims
