For some of you running large tires and a spare 305, 34, or 35" sizes and are having fitment issues on your stock bumper and don't have the coin to buy a new rear bumper. Here is a sweet deal to fix for your fitment or rubbing issues with large rear tires. Very inovating design also.

Warrior Products introduces a handy new bracket that allows extra clearance for mounting larger spare tires. As an added bonus, the bracket can be mounted in several different positions that shift the tire location by up to 1" up, down, or to the side relative to the factory mount. It's constructed from heavy duty steel and powder coated black for long lasting durability and good looks.

Actual spacing will vary on the different brackets from 1.5" to 2" toward the rear. While they are designed on the vehicles they are listed to fit, all of these brackets could be used on any spare tire mount with the matching bolt pattern and the ability to accept the bracket in the available space.

Note: The new 6x5.5" spacer has metric studs. If you're planning on using this with a vehicle that has standard studs, you will need to get new metric lugnuts to hold the tire to the studs.

looks like it will put the weight to far aout from the door.. stressing it way more.


Thats the benefit of having the lager tire sit on the bumper, keeps the excess weight from killing the hinges.

I don't think the physics behind the outward forces pulling on the door and hinges is that great of an ordeal at a +2". I would be more concerned of the weight added from a larger tire or rim to be more of a factor. Having the wheel sitting on the bumper does have it's advantages in everyday use. I think Toyota factored into the strength of the top hinge on the rear door to handle the bigger tires. It, to me, looks pretty beefy. My only concern with a lot of added weight on the rear door would be the sheet metal of the door buckle from repeated open and closing of the door. That for me is why I run my Gerry can empty and have it back their just mainly for looks. Yes, it has been full of gas, but with that much weight on the door sure makes it hard as hell to pull open. ;)
