Adding big wheels and tires to your F150 is pretty much a rite of passage for your average 2009-2020 F150 owner, but this can become a bit of an issue if you want to avoid potential issues if you get a flat, blowout, or lost bead out there on the road or the trail. While your truck comes with a stock-sized spare under the bed and tucked against the frame, there are more than a few issues with both its quality, condition, and size that could cause you some serious headaches when you head out. The good news is that it's absolutely possible to fit a larger spare tire under your truck in place of the stock spare. The bad news is that it takes some work and throwing some cash at your truck to make it happen. I know because I tried it myself, with excellent results. Get all the details on what you need to do to get a larger spare under your truck. I managed to drop in a LT305/65R18 Falken A/T3W on an 18x9" wheel with a -12mm offset on my 2011 F150 5.0L with excellent results that gave me some extra insurance against possible disaster.
