I have a 33x12.50 on mine. However I do have it spaced out about a half inch so it clears my soft top when it's folded down. If you don't have fresh bushings in the hinges it's going to rattle like no tomorrow with all that weight on it though. Just like mine.

My flat tire carrier ( 1976) flaps around like a piece of cardboard with a 33, let alone a 35"

Anyone running a 35"?

Mloudy- Are you running a 12.5" tire, what kind?

Thanks

Goodyear Wrangler MT 12.5 with no rattles. Not sure what is causing others to rattle or why mine doesn't.

New bushings and a good rubber stop keep it from rattlin.

35 MTR on stock 77 tire carrier. It does indent the tire though.
