Get some longer rubber bumpers or extend the ones you have with rubber shims.

That will help some.

Ya know what? I have a Rubicon and maybe that's a different animal in regard to stock tire carrier. Mine isn't stock anymore, but when it was, it had the stock 31 X 10 tire on it just fine. 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.

CB3 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 he's selling it?
05-12-2009 10:55 PM
2006_Sport Theres a guy on here...IIVIIonster04...who has a smittybuilt tire/bumper carrier combo. its decently priced and he hasnt had any problems with it he says.. its not of the best quality but it gets the job done

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?
