Spare tire

I'm running 265/70/17 tires on my WK and I was wondering if I replaced my spare tire with a 265/70/17 would it still fit under my WK where the spare tire goes?

With that size spare you will most likely need to do the rear hitch mod along with air it down to squeeze it down below.

I do not have a hitch, so I will just need to deflate the 265 before putting it on?

Try to fit it under there as it is and see if it fits. If not THEN deflate it
