No issues mounting the spare, but I don't think you could go even another 1/8" in width without running into trouble. This tire size is a very close fit.Heck yeah! That helps a lot. I'm glad to hear everything you said was exactly what I was hoping for. I am definitely getting these when the time comes. Most of out driving is to National Parks and BLM access roads. My suspension is also stock and since it's my wife's Jeep it will most likely stay that way. We will also be keeping the factory wheels. Any issue with mounting the spare? weight ok? Thanks for the detailed review.
Funny story, I spent the night out there in my Jeep last weekend. But, since it's Alberta, I woke up in the middle of the night to "use the facilities" only to find 4-5" of fresh snow on the ground with it coming down exceptionally hard.
