I have the stock 245 spare and it clears fine.

I'll look at it tomorrow and see how much extra clearance there is for a bigger spare.

It's a great hitch, very sturdy and overbuilt compared to stock.

There is plenty of clearance to the sides of the spare, but it does move the spare forward a couple of inches.

Side clearance is about 3 inches on each side, but only about 2 1/2 inches clearance from the tire to the rear end cover.
With 265's, it should be no problem but 285's will start getting close but think it will still clear.

These pics are with a 245 spare and the spare as far rearward as it will go.

I did not like the really wimpy mounting, so I modified mine
to pick up the two horizontal bumper mount bolts.

Warning: lots of pixels.

Hmmm. It looks like that link is down. The upshot is the rear mount
points need work.

Yeah, I didn't like giving up the bumper mounts either.

Can you get the pics up? I'd like to see what you did.
