Jeep Wrangler Spare tire carriers are a must for anyone running big tires
on their Jeep and want to maintain the peace of mind of always knowing they have a spare. The factory tire carrier on the Wrangler does not leave much room for a larger tire. A large 33 inch or 35 inch tire
on the tailgate carrier will cause the tire to hit the bumper
and the tailgate won’t close. Another issue around the factory tailgate carrier is weight. A large wheel and tire combination can be very heavy which causes excessive wear and tear on the tailgate hinges and the tailgate tire mount itself. After market tire carriers, whether tub mounted or bumper mounted, solve the issue of both physical size and weight restrictions of the factory spare tire mount.
