    After reading everyone's opinions on this post and doing some research on Google, I think there is more sway towards keeping all your tyres the same size if you have a AWD / 4x4. Most of the reasoning came from the affect it may have on Traction Control System and/or ABS. i.e: it MAY confuse the computer. And there was mixed opinions on the affect on the transfer case/ differential / drive chain.

    All in all, it's probably safer for me to just replace the spare with the same tyre as the other 4, which will also allow me to introduce the 5 wheel rotation pattern from the beginning which should give me a longer tyre life overall. E.g: my current spare has never been used! What a waste. I will then just take off the spare wheel hard cover as I tested it on the slightly bigger tyres and it didn't fit. I can then just fit a canvas one.

    Thanks all for your input.

    +1 Torsen- type center diff that can be manually locked in the transfer case

    +1 on the ABS wheel speed sensors, which is controlled by the Daimler ESP system onboard.

    Even drastic difference in pneumatic tyre pressures will mess with the ESP system. A flat tyre while driving at speed will sometimes produce the "Service ESP System" warning periodically, I mean a slow puncture on a tyre of 1.6 bar with the rest at 2.4 bar while driving 100km/h has given me trouble. I am speaking from experience. The Daimler ESP system actually deactivates to prevent damage to the drive train!

    I won't mind a short 50km hop to the nearest garage on one wrong sized tyre, as long as the overall diameter is very similar to the other three wheels ,i.e. <1.5% and the overall mass of each tyre is closely matching.

    I think different sized rims or sidewall heights with the same overall diameter would have somewhat less of an impact than big 3%+ diameter differences, or a heavy 35kg mud terrain on one side with three HT wheels of 20kg each on the rest of the axles.

    Rolling mass and large diameter discrepancies will surely, definitely damage TC and prop-shaft components. R12000 for a new front prop.. A bit more for the rear prop-shaft...TC even more bucks.. Rather get the same size spare.

    Unless you literally just need to crawl from your garage to the service center across the road, I would not chance it.

    I got mine from her as well. Extremely happy with it. She makes any size, so it fits really snug, and does not look baggy at all!

    Got mine delivered to Pretoria.

    Hi dleerob
    I find myself in similar shoes you were in, I've just gotten a GV Summit as well with 18" rims on it. Considering the Dunlop AT3s as my go to tyre, how have they been for you so far? would you mind sharing a picture of them as well...
