Spare tire carrier with aftermarket wheels and tires

Anyone have any experience with using the stock spare tire carrier with a heavy (35") tire? Is there any way to strengthen the carrier or replace it with a stronger one rather than replace the bumper?

I think TF make hinges. Look at OR FAB. Some guys with hitches turn the receiver over so tire rests on it. In time the heavy tire will beat your hinges up.

I'm running a 35 on a 20 with the stock tire carrier. Had to get the extender for it to get it to fit.
