What's the biggest tire that will fit on the tailgate without rubbing the bumper?

Is there any particular size you are looking at? I THINK i may have see 295/75/16, but I'll have to do a little search to see if I'm just fabbing that up.

I don't know. My 305/70-16 Nittos fit fine. I imagine that wheel backspacing will come into play once you go over 305 in width.

Anybody else reached the limit?

Yea, I've heard of people using a spacer on the spare in order to make it fit.

I have 35x12.5x18 Nitto Muds on AR thugs with a spacer.. They rub (on the back hatch/bumper) but just barely so I would say either a 34 or 33 should be okay

i have 295x70x17 Nitto Terra Grapplers on 17" alloys...and have about a 1/4" of clearance to window and maybe a hair more on bumper. I think the Nittos are about 33.2 inches.

I was previously running an All Pro rear bumper, which is supposed to have more clearance than the OEM bumper, but I needed a spacer with 305/70/17 MTR's in order to clear the bumper.

depends on the rear bumper. I have the warn and I think it is good for at least a 33 without using a spacer. With a spacer, 35s would be no problem.

One thing to consider in how big a tire to put on the back door is also weight. I had a 34" Tire and wheel on the back of my FJ and it ended up messing up the hinges from weight. I know of half a dozen other guys locally that are having alignment issues from their doors because of non-stock tires that are not even that big. If you want to go real big check on the weight first or make sure the door will handle it. I had to get the tire of the door and put it on the tire carrier. Thats why we make it. Sorry dont mean to plug a product but weight on the back door is a real issue.
