How much weight can the tailgate hold?

Just upgraded to 35s and now looking to build a new tire carrier. My question is can the stock tailgate hold the added weight of the larger tire? I would really rather not have a swing out carrier if I can avoid it but if not I can just build one of those and there are plenty of builds on here to look at.

Has anyone ever put a 35 on the stock tailgate?

35s I'm not sure about but I'm guessing it would weigh it down a bit. After a while it will wear out the hinges, I had to replace the hinges on mine from the 31s that were on there from the previous owner because the bottom pin broke and was barely on.
