I'm on a family vacation on MV and my 110 has a flat tire. The spare is 7.5r16 whereas the other 4 corners are 235/85. :facepalm:

I know the 7.5 is narrow, but the height looks close. Can I go ahead and use the 7.5 as a spare? I only ask because with experience with AWD on my Subarus even the slightest difference in tire height sends the AWD into a funk. I'd say I have about 150-200 miles of driving until home.

Apologies for the lame question in advance. Just trying to be the safe side.

The only reason your Subaru goes ape with different heights of tyre would be the ABS is telling the TC that there is wheel slippage due to odd sizes, they no likea.

But you will be fine
