I seem to recall when I bought my truck, it was advertised as having a "full-size" spare ... whatever that means. The tire itself is marked as being a "temporary spare tire", but it's definitely not one of those mini-collapsible ones you find in the trunks of cars. It's a real tire, though, I assume, a really cheap, and probably non-steel belted one.
I guess they provide them to reduce the cost and weight. Fine with me. One less thing to worry about when rotating the tires. I carry plugs and a compressor anyway.
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
