differnt bs for spare??

im looking for new wheels, but i would like to maintain the factory tire mount. i am currently running 315bf at's on factory rubicon wheels. the spare fits up flush on the factory spare bump stops and sits on the rear bumper, no bounce no movement at all on the spare. i know that its not the best way to carrier a spare but its soild, and i have every intention to order the new teraflex hinge carrier when its out, so id still like to keep the tire close to the gate. so if i ran 4.5 bs wheels on the jeep and did a factory bs wheel on the gate id just have to carry one my spidertrax spacers in the truck, run that with the spare to get home.

looking for idea's or big problems with this plan that im overlooking??

All you need is an extended stop

i did come across those, but most of what supports my spare is the bumper, it actually sits in the pocket on the bumper now, making the bumper hold the weight when the gate is closed. thats what y i dont want to space it off the gate any futher

Ok... Now I'm lost.

What are you trying to do?

im trying to put on wheels with the right bs on jeep. id like to get different wheels and if im changing out the wheels id like to be able to remover the spidertrax spacers. but im thinking about buying one of the new wheels with factory bs just to mount as on spare, thus i would keep one spacer for when i run that in emergency cases.

You can get a better tire mount for less than what you'd spend on Spidertrax spacers.

Well, if that what you want to do, it should work. I seen some one that did another little trick for their 35's that seemed to work for them. They went with the 4.5" spare and extended the bump stops but ordered an extra and drilled a hole at the bottom of the tail gate and added a third bump stop so the spare now rested on three bp stop for more support. That way the spare didn't sag down.

Here was the picture they took

Could you do that? Yes. Would I? No. Your tires will last you longer with a 5 tire rotation. You would not be able to put the spare into the rotation without having to either mount the spare on one of the correctly backspaced wheels or run the spacer with that wheel on the Jeep, which would negate the whole point of what you are trying to do.

5 tire rotation is personal.. You really don't get longer life in the long run because you are wearing out the spare. You may have to change tires sooner with 4 tire rotation but you only have to buy 4 tires not 5. It really is a personal choice.

True, true.

That's not correct. Tires have a shelf life as well as a tread life.
