Yes. You are right. My concern was having the same height in the tires as if I had a flat then I could put my spare which is a general tire on with the Firestone tires.

As a rule when ever I have had a flat I get it fixed ASAP and have the tire shop swap then out for me while I am there.

So running the spare for a short time should not be a problem, I'd mount the spare on the outside for easy access.

Oh yes, I would get it fixed quickly as well. I'm a little picky about that sort of thing. I laugh when I see cars on the highway going 65-70 mph on the temporary donut that is rated for like 40-45 mph

My 2014 RAM 4x4 came with them from the factory. so far about 20K on them pulling my FW. Tires now about half worn. They seam to handle loads quite well also. when loaded, my rear axle weight in at around 6000#. I would recommend them.
