    I have a 2013 GT with 285/35/19 and 265/40/19s. I put Brembo brakes on the front and upgraded to larger rotors on the back.

    I overlooked the fact that my spare may not fit over the Brembos, so I am looking for a package that would fit in the spare tire spot and may minimize its height so it doesn't stick up too high. This came up as I was out with a few others where one guy blew his 325 tire in the mountains...spare in a can wouldn't work...had to be towed miles as he couldn't get a replacement tire.

    In looking at other threads, some recommended a Drag 18x8 DR-34 rim and 225/50R18 tire.

    Wanted to double check before I pulled the trigger.

    Thanks...bought the rim through DTD...just received today. Going to verify that it fits the front/rear before mounting a tire.
