CT has had F150 on it’s crosshair right from the start. Now that Lightening Pro with dual motor has a full size spare at $40K, CT may find a way to fit the spare somewhere (don’t ask me where).
I wonder if that's meant to be a dig at Tesla. Almost all ICE trucks have a spare tire.

As an aside, I wonder what having all those lumps and bumps on the underside of the truck does to its drag coefficient. Can't be good.

Different tread pattern on the spare. Are those 33s?
Can’t tell about the size but as for threads goes, I just saw the same setup with an F150 hybrid. It looks like that spare is standard. It does not seem to be centered either.

I am leaning more toward road tires on my truck both for efficiency and noise. I don’t see bad winter weather much and am one of those people that want a truck more than I needing one.

I want to see the CT on the road as much as anyone. But, I'll admit that, selfishly, any delay is ultimately beneficial to me. More time to save money for the eventual purchase. Also, I would rather take additional delays, than to accept delivery of a CT with a bunch of software issues or worse, physical issues. Lastly, this gives additional time for Tesla and the auto industry to lobby governing agencies to allow some of the features of the CT (i.e. no side-view mirrors).

Lets not forget that there is absolutely NO PRECEDENT for what Tesla is doing here with the CT. That is why I will keep myself giddy with excitement for its eventual release, but also understand any delays.
