    i've got a swinging spare tire carrier bolted to the sheetmetal. i've been hauling around a 32x11.50x15 tire on 15x10 steel wheel with no problems for a couple years. ive got 33's and i'd like to put a 33 on there. would a 33 tsl on the same rim be too much weight? what about a 33 bfg A/t on an alloy 15x8? i know someone on here has bent the fender out with only a stock 31. is there anyplace i can find the weight/tire size limits for these things?

    I have a 33" BFG MT on mine but it will soon be swapped to one of my 33" TrXus MT's I think its fine. A 35....I dont know. The bracket that bolts on the tailgate to latch the carrier will carry most of the weight until you swing it out.
