tire carrier replace?

Ok so I have a 2013 jk. recently put some 35" nitto terra grapplers and some rims on it. no lift or anything yet but definately looking into one. no rubbing at all either (thank The Lord) but I recently removed the spare tire and the carrier because many people were telling me it won't hold up and to get a better one. the tires are only about 30lbs heavier than my stock tires (95lbs) each. I removed it off the carrier and noticed the three bolts were a little wobbly. I don't go off-roading (yet) it's mainly an everyday truck. will I definately need to upgrade the carrier or should I leave it?

you may want to for peace of mind. one thread of a failed tailgate on 35's is one too many for me.
