For my '46 Woodie I have the original spare mounted on the tailgate. The original spare is the only tire and wheel that will clear the rear bumper when the tailgate is down, without crushing the hubcap. I machined an adapter from the 9" Ford bolt pattern to the original bolt pattern allowing me to use the original type spare in an emergency. I still carry a repair kit and a can of Fix-A- Flat. Not cool being in the middle of nowhere with a flat.
