35 inch tire and tail gate tire carrier
 
I've been thinking about those 35s and wondering if anyone has a 35" hanging on the stock tire carrier. I've seen brake light tower extenders for it, but wonder if the tail gate carrier will handle the weight of a 35" tire?

I carry a 33" tire on my stock carrier, WITH PROPER BUMPSTOPS and being under 80lbs, my hinge welds are OK, but

A 35" tire/wheel will most likely be over 80lbs and a stock spare tire EXTENDER will have to be used--This puts too much strain on the tailgate hinge welds

NOT A GOOD IDEA, should get a swing out carrier--many choices

Good luck

I have a 35 in on my stock carrier, the only reason is havent had the money for new bumper with swing out tire carrier. it holds fine but pops and cracks alot.

It won't last- 33 is too big :) 35 WILL break it off, with BAD times resulting- pity the person behind you! Mark W.

35" tire is just to big for the stock carrier.

dont know about everyone else but the 35's on the wifes rubi has been ridin the stock spare mount for 2 yrs and 4 months with absalutely NO problems here.

^ The grate on the inside hasn't collapsed? And the mount hasn't given out? You must be that lucky guy, then, because you're definitely the exception to the rule. Our 33 on Briana's OEM carrier is stressing it a bit- thankfully, we have mine as a spare :) Mark W.
