My 31 x 12.5 tire did not fit on the stock tire carrier - the circumference hit both the bumper and the third brake light AND it was too wide to be fastened by the standard bolts. A 35 x 12.5 will be that much worse.

I installed a mount extender but have been told by multiple parties that you never want to use one of those for anything heavier than a 31" because it will mess up your tailgate. Hopefully someone with 35's will come along and tell you how they handled it.
