As per the title, will a LT265/75/R16 (32x10.5x16) MTR/k fit on the factory spare tire carrier with no modifications?

I posed this question to someone here on the forum while I was reading his build to 265s/OME, and he said yes, but I would invite additional comments. Every Jeep is different, etc. Any contradicting experience?

Does it clear the bumper and the third brake light OK?

Any trimming of the little rubber bumpers necessary?

Any concerns about the long-term viability of the tailgate and hinges with it on there?

I have a 295 on mine and only had to place 1" spacers on the third brake light.

I ran one back there for years on the stock carrier, no issues. May have to trim the rubber bumpers, not much.

i used one of those 1/4" wheel spacers from your local auto store to make a little more room. Otherwise you will be fine.

Good idea, never thought of it, thanks. Right now my windshield wiper gets hung up so that would resolve it.
