Olympic Cargo Rack

I'm trying to install a spare tire mounted Olympic Cargo Rack (904). Sounds simple enough...

I can't get the holes for the pins to line up. The spare tire is preventing the rack from sliding fwd on the extension bar. To the average on-looker it sounds like a simple problem. "Your spare is too big". It's the standard size tire the came with it from the factory. I've even let some but not all the air out and still no dice. I've tried to call Olympic and they were closed until Tuesday! Any ideas short of drilling new holes?

Yes, I've thought of running without a spare but that is just tempting fate too much for me.

Things are more like they are now than they have ever been before.

Can you post some pics? Might help us to help you quicker.

Also, if you take the spare off and install the rack, will the spare go back on?

Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.

I could be misunderstanding the problem, but you could add some washers.
