|nicolas-eric||will a 35x12.5x15 be too heavy for the stock tire carrier until iĀ“ll have my bestop tire carrier in 3-4 weeks?|

|bpowa||where can I get these spacers?|

|mrbigjeep||nope. thats why i said you'll need spacers for it...which may require longer bolts.|

I run the Bestop Oversize Tire Carrier (~$250 from Summit) and love it. Opens with the rear gate instead of requiring you to open two things ala most bumpers. It's holding my 33x12.50 spare without issue and I'll routinely stand on top of it on the trail to talk to a group or for visibility. Hell I've dropped off some steep ledges and had the weight of the jeep come to rest on the tire 2x... again no issues.
No way I'd put anything bigger than a 31x10.50 on the rear gate. 32 is really where you're starting to push it with the factory carrier (and only would run that with alloy wheels). The spacer kits are worthless as they just move the tire further off the gate creating increased leverage (and guaranteeing your gate will fall off eventually).

save up for the carrier.
you'll need spacers for the 3rd brake light.

|04blackunlimited||I was just wondering the same thing. I dont have the money right now to get the rear bumper and tire carrier. So I was gonna use the stock one but modify it alittle to make it work better.... I just bought 33 12.50's and am going to sell the stockers and tires and wanted the matching set.....|

|AzTJ||I think a 32x11.5 is the biggest using a stock wheel.|
