I'm sure it would have fit a 32 X 10.5 just fine. It might have fit a 33 X 9.5, but I don't know for sure about that. It would almost fit the 33 X 11.5 I had.
Rubicons have different rubber bumpers, which I think allows one or two sizes larger tire on the stock tire carrier.
So maybe my size estimates in prior post are to optimistic for a non-Rubi TJ. Not sure. My info does work for a stock TJ Rubi though.

|DavidAnderson||i have to air down my stock gambler with 31-10.50 so it will fit, once i spin the lugs down a little, ill air it back up. its impossible to fit my stock wheel with this tire on with 26psi in it.|

33 X 11.5 R15 or R16 (285/75R16) is to much, IMO.
I think that a 33 X 10.5 R15 is probably going to fit and would be safe in regard to strength. IMO
However, the ideal tire for a stock spare mount is the 33 X 9.5 R15 or the 32 X 10.5 R15.

|G-MANtj||would it be smart to get a cheap carrier? because i plan on getting a new bumper but dont have enough money for both bumper and carrier. could i get a better quality bumper and a little cheaper tire carrier of a different brand?|

max tire size for a stock spare tire mount??
what is the maximum tire size that a stock spare tire mount will hold on a 97 TJ? Would 33's be too heavy?
