Chevrolet El Camino Spare Tire Sizes

The Chevrolet El Camino has used a 5x4.75" bolt pattern for all models from 1978 to 1988 along with tire diameters ranging from 25.3" to 25.5" tall. Using a temporary spare tire with a diameter close to the standard tire has many benefits, especially for modern vehicle applications. Tire diameter as well as wheel diameter clearance have been taken into account for the specific Chevrolet El Camino years and options. In this case, 125/80R17 and 155/70R17 spare tire sizes are used to avoid vehicle components while closely matching the original tire size diameters.
