tire long shot

i know this is a long shot but i had a tire bow out yesterday and just wanted to see if anyone had ANYTHING in a 255/85 r16 that they wanted to get rid of?

I just need 1 and dont care about the tread as i already have new KM2's on order but dont expect them for a few weeks yet.......

also i need this ASAP so id need you to be local........

other then that does anyone think its ok to run a cheap tire in a diffrent size for a few weeks or is that a BAD idea?

i just hate to buy a 260 tire for 3 weeks of driving....... and then have a mismatched spare.......

just not sure what to do.....

I had an XCL that i put on to get home but had to drive slow as the aligmnet/ balance i guess was way off......

Don't run a different size unless it's the same circumference.

I've got one of Galpins old & tattered 255 KM2s here that I was just holding onto as a backup. It was a trail tire so ain't the prettiest but should get the job done as a loaner temp solution until your others show up.

Getting it to you from DC would be the catch, but I'm sure we could figure something out.

285 75 R16 is close enough in diameter to use as a spare.

Sounds good, we can "Plan B" it if need be.
