Will my spare tire carrier, hold a 35\"

I'm getting new tires this week probably, which will be Pro Comp Mud Terrain 315/75/16(35 x 12.5) Tires. These will be mounted on Rock Crawler 16 x 10 wheels.

My truck came stock with 16 x 7 wheels, and probably 225/75/16 tires. The spare tire carrier is underneath the bed and holds the tire under there by a cable. Can this handle this new tire and wheel combo, or are they too big and heavy now? It currently is holding a 285/75/16 tire just fine. I know I can get a spare tire carrier for around $220ish, but didn't want to spend the money right now, but may have to.

Re: Will my spare tire carrier, hold a 35\"

Mine will definately fit a 35, of course it is the bed.

Having had to pull a spare out from under a van on the side of a road at 11pm in the rain, and knowing that offroad the conditions might be worse, I just pulled mine out from the bottom and threw it in the bed. I took a padlock and some 10,000lb rated chain and attached it to one of the tie down points in the front of the bed. It isn't going anywhere without someone doing some work for it (not to mention you can't see it with my toneau now), and if I ever need to use the whole bed, I still have the mechanism down there to put the spare back down there.

Your exhaust routing and trailer hitch would probably be the main problems with putting it under the body. Side Note: I did once see a 31x13.5 Swamper under a Toyota's bed like this once. Was funny as hell, thing stuck down past the trailer hitch and I was sure it would rub the diff if he ever compressed the rear much, but I gave him points for not just putting it on one of those cheesy "PreRunner" mounts like everyone else in SoCal.[img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

I would question whether is actually enough space to fit a 35" tire under there. Take a tape and measure around the existing tire to see if there is enough clearance.

The answer is a big NO!

Tried it today and it rubs against the Exhaust.
