Tire Carrier

Can you fit a 33" tire on the stock tire carrier for a 2010 Unlimited Sport? Any input would be greatly appreciated. If it won't fit what is the best option to pursue?

not sure about the jk's but on a tj i think the stock carrier only holds a 31". Best bet is to get a new tire carrier. Look on quadratec or another 4x4 site. You can find a basic one for 50-75 bucks

alright sounds good, Thanks. I wasn't sure if there would be enough room. Trying to figure everything out before I make the purchases. I'm looking to upgrade to 33" on a 15 or 16" rim I haven't decided which size yet. I also want to put a 2.5" lift on. I don't do too much off roading at the moment, can anyone suggest a lift to look at?

TW they just put a 35" Mickey Thompson MTZ with 17" wheel on my stock JK tire carrier. Awesome. Will see how it holds up in a year they told me it won't be an issue if I am not doing huge mud and rock crawling with severe vibrations. It is solid as a rock, the brake light extension to get over the tire is the least stable piece of all!

You will have no issue.

Just FYI--if you put a 33"/34"/35" tire/wheel on your STOCK JK/JKU carrier and NEVER GO OFF THE ROAD--you'll be VERY lucky if the tailgate/hinges last 1 yr--

This has been reported for over 3 years--pay attention-

You have to either/both--use correct bumpstops/provide vertical tire support, or get a (Swingaway Tire Carrier)-

It's your jeep so you can do what you please--there's a lotta counter support info on google !!

Good luck

Agree Jimbo, my JK will only see the deer hunting club and normal roads otherwise so I should be good for a bit, but I think I will do something next year even though it is solid now.

After my incident this wknd with those guys f-ing up my brake caliper and nearly causing major damage to me and my Jeep I was thinking they should have offered me something in reason and would have gone with rear bumper or tire reinforcement, but for now I think it is good to go.

GOOD, try and make sure the bumpstops are providing some "Pressure" against the tire, that will control the NORMAL driving suspension vibration-and

Remember, if you letit go TOO LONG, it will cause damage to the hinges/latch, that could be expensive to repair--

Great advice I am going to keep an eye on it. I am on it like a buzzard on a gutwagon. Thanks again.
