No problem, just glad I remembered. Yes, I went with 275/70 nitto ridge grapplers to replace the factory tires that came on my Pro. Felt the 295's were to stuffed looking and would limit some offroad capabilities. Just a personal choice. But I haven't replaced my spare there yet.

Wow. Not a lot of room if that's the 32" OEM Michelin 275/65-18. Do you think you have the room to fit a 33.2" 275/70-18 spare between the shackles?

I wonder why this hasn't come up more?

On the passenger side it should fit no problem. The drivers side I'm sure will be touching. I have read in a thread of what people were doing to fit larger tires on the spare but I can't remember if it was with Coachbuilder shackles or stock shackles. I also can't remember what thread it was in. You could possibly read through all of the 295 tire pics thread and see if you can find any info there.

we are talking 1/2 each side not a full inch stock 32" v/s 33.2 Nittos. Plus if you must create room I recommend a long hard burnout on the spare tire. That should take off a for 1/8s of an inch.

also if you let your tire down a little you should be able to center it up when you lift it back in. Create equal space on each side.

This is the reason I went with the Total Chaos shackles. They leave enough room for a 295/70R18 tire, whereas the the Coachbuilder ones do not. The TC ones are only a .75/1" shackles...which was perfect for my 3.5" lift up front because I don't like driving nose down. Just FYI. I think the ToyTec 1-1.5" shackles are the same width wise.
