I measured the distance between my rear end and my rear bumper, and
didn't have room for a (if I remember right) 33 inch diameter tire under
there.  Are the spare tires supposed to be angled somehow?  How tall are
the original 16 and 17 1/2 inch tires that were at least options in '58,
and would they fit under the bed?  My '58 is a short Fleetside.

On the 55.2-57 the standard spare tire location was 
under the rear of the bed.  The side mount spare 
(including the cut-out driver's side rear fender) 
was an extra cost option.  I'd guess that this was 
the same for 58-9, but I'm not sure.
