I just got a matching spare for my truck. It's underneath being supported by the factory chain and winch mechanism. Although it's not rusty I was wondering if it's strong enough to hold the weight of a 33x12.5x15 Goodyear MTR tire on a 15x8 Eagle aluminum rim?
I don't know the exact weight of the tire/rim but it sure feels quite heavy to me.

Where else are you going to put it? I have a swing out bumper carrier, but only put it on for trips because my truck won't fit in the garage with it on. I also built a simple holder for inside next to the left rear quarter panel. This is where it spends most of it's life. But I have carried it underneath. The winch seems to do OK with the size and weight of a 33x12.5" tire. What I don't like is the tire sits really, really low. It's OK for parking lots, but not so much off road.

This is a great excuse to purchase a fancy rear bumper.
