Would it be possible to get that tire but used? Enough to hold air, and I'll buy another rim?

ya check at your local tire dealer. I know that some of the LS around here have used tires that you can buy for spares. as a matter of fact I just sold them my crappy spare for like ten bucks to take off my overall price of my other tire. check around someone will have something you can use

But would I be able to find that tire, or just another 33 would work as a spare? I don't want it to look stupid either way.

i want a full size 35" spare tire. for that i ordered another tire carrier.
the stock tire carrier an the stock rear door isnĀ“t strong enough for 33s or bigger.

I don't know you would have to just start asking around at your local tire shops. you should be able to find one somewhere I would think

I'll start calling around then. I don't care if it has next to no tread, it just needs to hold air.

Will the sock carrier be strong enough for a 33, or should I build the carrier first?

I ran with my 33 on the stock carrier for about 3 months - 1 hour of mild offroading (See puddles' pics). Started to have trouble shutting the tailgate... Took it all off and put the spare in the back untill I make my new carrier this winter. Others (1blkjp, I think) went quite some time without damage, wheeling much harder/more often than I get a chance.

it will hold a 33 like jj said but it is suggested to get a carrier for the tire for the reason that it can cause tailgate "warping"

I actually have one of my old 33X12.50 Goodyear MT/R's on my stock carrier.
Since I have the stock tire carrier on the tail gate, and after market wheels with less backspacing,
I did this ---> http://www.4x4xplor.com/spare-bumpstops.html to keep the tire from moving around/rattling.
It's been over a year, and so far (fingers crossed), no problems.

A 33" tires should be fine. I have a full size m/t spare on stock tire carrier. 32" could be a problem, but the 33" spare will rest perfectly on your stock bumper, taking the weight and bounce out of the equation. Its a snug fit, but it works great

p.s- you will need to get bigger bolts, and put in spacers to raise your 3rd brake light. about 1-1.5" of spacer is enough, 2" best

go for the carrier rip...i would just go for any 33" mud tire...unless you can afford the matching one...i have BFG's but can't afford a full size bfg mud so i just got a full size dunlop mud terrain...same size and it is still mud terrain but waay cheaper...it will look fine.
