I was able to pick up a ‘22 with 37pp sooner than I anticipated. The clunk is there on 37s as well. I thought at first that it might not have been quite as noticeable but it was a very warm day when I picked it up from the dealer. Well today it’s been cloudy and not as warm and the noise/feel is pretty much identical to the ‘21 I had with 35s.
I have just thrown a whole bunch of sh it in the bed of the truck and closed the tonneau cover. Now who knows whats rattling around. Could be kids beach toys, the dogs water bowl or a case of bottled water anytime you jump the railroad tracks. And I try not to drive under 40 as much. Problems and solutions.

Not for me, no way a loose spare tire would cause any feedback in the steering wheel or gas pedal.
Well just a thought. Some folks said that it comes from the rear and sounds like loose gulf ball! Hope it’s resolved sooner than later.
