Land Rover Defender Spare Tire Sizes

The Land Rover Defender has used 5x120mm and 5x6.5" bolt pattern variations from 1993 to 2022 along with tire diameters ranging from 31.6" to 32.1" tall. Using a temporary spare tire with a diameter close to the standard tire has many benefits, especially for modern vehicles with larger brake calipers and anti-lock brakes or traction control systems. Tire diameter as well as wheel diameter clearance have been taken into account for the specific Land Rover Defender years and options. In this case, using a non-temporary Full-Size tire as your spare, is the recommendation for all applications.
