Cheapest way to carry 35 inch spare
I dont want to spend 350$ on a swing away tire carrier just yet... But I do wanna carry my spare, I hate goin spareless! Any one know a cheap alternative? Can't put it in the back either cause I've got the back seat and use it, all 5 tires are 35x12.50x15, thanks
I have been carrying mine on the stock carrier for a few years and no problems. I made extensions for the bump stops so they are against the tire.
"Our lady of blessed acceleration don't fail me now"
Bestop's carrier is not bad.
08 Tundra CrewMax TRD 5.7, 07 Jeep GC-SRT8, 01 Lightning (sold), 96 Impala SS (sold), 93 RX-7 Twin Turbo (sold), 90 Wrangler 413 cid (AMC 401 +0.060), 71 Formula 400 (sold), 72 Formula 350 (sold), 71 Firebird 350 (sold), 69 Firebird 462 cid (455 +0.030)
I'll be getting mine wheel and tires soon. i plan on useing my stock carrier. Just remember to extend those bump stops otherwise the vibrations from the tire can cause damage. If it doesn't fit there are spare tire extensions you could get for around $30-50. I'm looking at the MBRP one. MBRP also sells a spare holder reinforcement kit for around $30-40. Some people have also adjusted the catch for the rear door so the the door fits tighter when closed. No reason to spend big bucks on a swing out now as long as you take the proper precautions when fitting to the stock one.
