I have had my 2019 ascent since Labor Day 2018. When the factory tires needed replacing decided to make some changes. KMC Bully wheels and continental AT rubber. Encase you are interested you can also fit one of the original wheels where the spare goes for a full size spare.

Hi, be aware that your full sized spare needs to be deflated when stored there. The reason is to minimize damage and other issues in the event it gets caught on something. The rear breakover angle of the Ascent isn't tremendous, and a full sized spare makes it even less.

I've had my full sized spare get caught up on things - mostly dirt, fortunately, so, it's been jammed back into my hitch, but not gotten caught permanently on whatever I was going over. I've moved it to the roof onto a rack for my more serious off-roading (but, it eats gas being up there).
