Fit in what regard? In regards to the bumper? Are you running a stock rear bumper?

I'm curious about this as well. My FJ has 285/70/17 tires and I just bought new rims and a new spare tire (previous spare was on a 16" rim). I haven't received the new rims yet to do a test fit some I'd like to know if anyone else is running a 285/70/17 spare tire.

I had 285/70/17 BFG AT on stock alloys and fit fine on my 07 with stock rear bumper. I switched to a 315/75/16 with a wheel that has 3 3/4" Back spacing and it just fits. If the back spacing was stock it would not but a wheel spacer should solve the problem.

Thanks for the info!

You can completely flip your tire carrier and it will give you a different angle to clear the bumper.

Yes they do make a 3'' drop/ raise (depends on how you mount it) bracket too. Runs like $80

I did both for my 35's and works great! clears bumper and window!

you can see the angle and space from body now..

Yep, I have stock TT 16" wheels with Goodyear Duratrac 305/70/16's. Fits just fine (no spacer or mods to the mount) with an inch to spare for the rear glass to open and plenty of room over the rear bumper.
