Now it's time to install the tire mount plate using the three provided 1/2x1-1/4-inch bolts and hardware. I hand-snugged the bolts then attached the tire with the provided lug nuts. Once the tire was mounted, I slid it up against the carrier and tightened all three bolts on the mount. The tire mount is meant to accommodate a tire up to 35 inches in size. The 285/75R16 BFGoodrich T/AKO tire fits perfectly.
