    I'm not sure if it will fit,But if it does you probably wouldn't be able to see out the window.

    I currently run my 33x12.50r15 in the stock carrier. It touches the back of the seat and on the tailgate so I don't think your 35 will fit unless you don't put the seat up. BTW my truck is an 86.

    I never thought a 35 would fit, because my 31 barley fit...but, guess what. If you are willing to have seat back be at a 90* angle it will fit. You will need to put the stud at the aft edge of the center hole. I have a BFG M/T 35x12.50-15 mounted to my stock carrier. I can't think of a better way to explain it, so if it doesn't make sense let me know and I will take some quick pics.

    I can't even fit a bald 31" behind my seat, but I could in my '83. Has to be the brackets. I can't imagine a 33" fitting unless the seat back wasn't locked.

    I have a 33/12.5R15 on a 15x8 rim and it barely fit's...It touches the tailgate and hits the back of the seat..

    A 35 is not going to fit in the stock location! unless you move the rear seat forword!

    I have a 32 and it touches the seat, a 33 might fit.

    It fits. You just have to have the back seat at a 90 degree angle, insteed of being slightly leaned back.

    Get an outside tire carrier. They're mean! Especially with a 35!
