Want to go to BFG KO2’s. Already running Spidertrax spacers and TF leveling kit (rubber spacers) since new, so going to 285/70/17 shouldn’t be an issue for my otherwise stock JKU. Anyone see anything wrong with this plan?
Question is do I need a spacer on the stock spare tire carrier with the slightly upsized tire?
You should be good to go... My daughter has 285/70-17's on her stock wheels and on the spare tire carrier. It does compress the rubber bumpers a bit, but no issues now 3 years in.
