Yes it will fit. Never said it didn't. What I said and he is probably referring to is when the tire is tighten down to the carrier it is a little too tight. Pushing the tire onto the rubber bumpers too hard. There are different backspacing and types of factory wheels that have up to 5.25'' of backspacing.
Here is an example. My jeep when I bought it with a factory wheel 15x8 with 5.25'' backspacing and a 31.10.5 tire.
Here is what it did to the tire......
You can see where the rubber bumpers pressed into the tire. As a result the tire is now CRAP.
I mounted it to the jeep and set it on the ground and the side wall bubbles out in those locations and is very thin.
