315/70/17 Spare Tire Stock Wheel

315/70/17 Tire mounted on stock sport aluminum wheel could not get it to mount on the spare tire carrier. Looks like it would have worked if I had proper backspacing. What do I do? Any way to get a single wheel spacer? I have seen spare tire spacers but the ones I have seen raise the tire and set it back and I don't think that is needed. If I could just space it back a little looks like it would just sit on the bumper and 3rd brake light could be seen. What have others done in this situation? I know I should get a bumper w/ tire carrier but lift and tires got me hurting for money for awhile.

Are all of your new 315 wheels on the oem Moab rims? Or did you just buy 4 new 315 tires and have the spare the oem? Fwiw... The manufacturer of most 315/70-17 tires recommends a rim size of 8.5 to 10 inches. The oem Moab rim is only 7.5 wide. Can you get away with it? Sure, probably. Would you want to go too terribly far into the sticks aired down to 10-16 psi?

That's quite a bit of play on a small rim.
