I wanted to see if there was any mechanical damage that can happen when using the stock spare with tires larger than stock.


Thanks!

so far as i know, there isn't any information about this.

i think paulj is monitoring for this information over on the CRV boards too, and doesn't know????

one person replaced the element donut with a pilot donut, which is few % larger, and still fits in the well, to guard against this.
