    Going to get some new rubber now leaning towards the BFG Mud Terrains 305/70R/16. My new concern is that the tire won't fit on the Kaymar rear tire carrier. Let me know if you have any suggestions, thanks.

    I've got a 315/75r16 on my kaymar. Had to pull the mount completely out and then add a spacer on the stud to position the tire properly but it has been holding it there fine for more than a year.

    Oddly enough, I had to pull the mount all the way out as well to mount my Tundra spare. The thing is my spare is 245/70r16. Must be the backspacing on the 16x7 inch steel wheel that causes this. As to why I have a useless Tundra spare... that's another story which reminds me, anyone need a Tundra spare?
