tire doesn't fit
 
i finally have a full size spare to match up with the rest of my 31x10.50 dunlop mud rovers and the studs on the tailgate are not long enough. is there a cheep fix for this or am i going to have to spend $70 on a spacer.

go to advanced and find some longer studs......or by some rims with less back spacing so the wheel mounting surface contacts before the tire does

don't got the money for rims with backspacing, with my tires there is very little rub so its not necessary for any spacer or rim with backspacing. ill look around and see what i can find.

Or shave down the rubber bumpers on the tub and tailgate til the tires fits.
