spare tire size that fits the carrier?

I need to get some parts for my spare tire carrier, but before I get them, does anyone know if the carrier is big enough to carry a 265/75 tire, since the OEM size was 225/75's?

I am pretty sure a 35 will fit in the stock carrier.
I am working on mounting a 04 SD carrier in my truck

It is a winch style. It lowers a cable from the center via the jack crank handle

I got the part I needed to mount the spare today. What a pita getting that tire up there. I had to use blaster on the bolts and lower the driver side bolt leaving just 1 thread above the nut. Even then the 265/75 was hitting the gas shield on that side before the pass. side. I didn't want to crank it up too tight and damage the sidewall.

I think with any tire bigger than a 265 you'll need to get a bigger bolt for the drivers side at the least, the 265 max's it out. In fact I think I should but I don't want to through that again.

The SD carrier is far from a bolt in. I need to make mounting brackets for it. The rear tank is the mounting problem
