Silverado and Sierra trucks recalled for spare tire issue

General Motors (GM) is recalling certain 2019-2021 GMC Sierra 1500 and Silverado 1500 vehicles equipped with certain accessory road tires and a 17″ spare tire. The 17″ spare tire provided with the vehicle is not compatible for use with the accessory wheels, which can cause the anti-lock brake system (ABS) to not function properly under certain conditions.

An ABS system that does not function properly can increase the risk of a crash and injury.

Remedy
Dealers will provide a new 17″ spare tire and wheel assembly that is compatible with the accessory wheels, free of charge. Dealers will also apply a new spare tire information label, and provide owners with an owner’s manual insert clarifying which spare tire to use with the accessory road tires and with the 17″ original tires. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed January 31, 2022. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-462-8782 or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM’s number for this recall is N212346510.

Notes
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

I wonder: are owners advised to have the truck towed to the nearest dealer to ensure that the proper spare tire is mounted, following an inspection to determine the type of “optional accessory” tires the truck is running on?
In an earlier, simpler age my primary concern was whether the spare had air in it. Now we need a supplemental owner’s manual to assure the braking system will still work after changing out the flat?
