    What the biggest size tire/rim that will fit in the inside stock spare tire holder?

    I did a search, but only found info on K5s, and it talked about the tailgate being the limiting factor, so I thought Burbs might be different. I don't have a spare right now, and if I can't find one cheap, I might as well get one that will match the tire/rim I plan on running (same height of course), instead of the ones I have now, right.

    Anyone know?

    on a burb you might be able to go a size or two taller but the well is not very wide, i dont think you could go ANY WIDER it just wouldent fit in, unless you mod the well. but that is a ton of hassel.

    agdieseler did a very cool rack sparetire/tool holder that fits in the back of his sub.

    I have 33x12.50 16.5 on my Sub and the metric equiv. wouldn't fit in the spare tire well so it went on the roof rack.

    Bummer, that's the size I wanted to fit. That is a cool rack by AG, but mine's a family DD, and I use the third seat sometimes, so I guess I'll just have to get a skiny spare until I get a tire carrier bumper.

    I've got a 285/75/16 jammed in there. I think that's about the biggest.

    I've got a 33 x 10.5 x 15 on a 15" rim in my burb spare spot.
