spare tire bumpers.

I have a regular spare tire mount with spacer on my gate. I have a spare 35x12.50 and the stock bumpers don't even come close to supporting it. Any suggestions? I can't find anything.

- Bumper support what? The bumper does not support the tire. The tailgate combined with the rubber bumpers support the tire.

- With a 35 hanging off with a spacer, on the stock mount, and I assume it is not making contact with the rubber bumpers, you are asking for trouble with the tailgate and spare mount.

- You need a new bumper with a spare tire carrier.

I am not a fan of the Spare tire on the bumper thing. It is just a lot of cantilevered weight.
Best top makes a tire carrier that hooks to the door and uses a double pivot and strong arm to support the weight. I built something like it for mine and welded it to my steel corners. Very happy with the results
