    I've read it will hold a 285/70/17. No idea how much bigger you could go.

    I have a 275/70r17 spare on an aftermarket wheel mounted in the factory location and it seems like I have room for more. I can't say for sure but I think you'd be fine.

    **ETA**

    Sorry - somehow had it in my head you were going with 285s. So I guess I meant that you should be fine with that size..

    Thanks for the feedback I don't want to have to relocate spare as I want to keep as much cargo space as possible

    I am interested also, if someone has a good pic. of a 285/70/17 under there. I would like to see how far it hangs down, thanks.

    I stuffed a 255/80/17 KM2 which is 33.1" under neath. Completely airless though so I don't suggest it unless you have a compressor.

    20180809_083311.jpg 285/70-17 will fit but it definitely hangs down.

    Hi Natahan, new member here. I’be been searching for days If i can fit 17x70x285 BFG KO2 in the spare tire location on my 2014 Lt 4runner.
    Some says no and some says yes. Then I see your picture. Do you have do anything? Like airing down the tire or removing hitch?
    I will have my tires change next week, 4hweelandparts company said they tried this to other customer and did not fit.
    Thanks
