Lincoln Aviator: All-Wheel Drive / Operating All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Vehicles With Spare Tires

Do not use a different size spare tire other than the tire provided. If the mini-spare tire is installed, the AWD system will disable and enter rear-wheel drive only mode to protect driveline components. Some limited AWD traction could be provided if the mini-spare is installed on one of the front wheels. If you are in driving conditions where limited AWD traction is needed while the mini-spare is installed, it is recommended the mini-spare be installed on the front axle.

If the mini-spare is installed, this condition is indicated by a warning in the information display.

The slip response system could activate if the mini spare is installed on the front wheels. If the mini spare was installed on the rear wheels the slip response system will fully disable. In situations where there is a wintery mix or an off road situation, and you need to use a mini spare, you must install the mini spare in the front tire position and move a full size tire to the rear tire position for the slip response system to function.
