Power Wagons come stock with BFG A/T 285-70-17's and the spare is the same size. No worries, it should fit. BFG doesn't make a 285-75-17. On the other hand, I want to squeeze a 35" up there...

I have a 35x12.50x17 under the bed of my truck. You're good to go.

Sweet. What make/model of tire? What is the actual diameter listed by the manufacturer?

On a side note, it looks like BFG is not producing the regular M/T's in 35-12.50-17's anymore because that size is not listed on the sizes/specs page. Looks like they want you to spend more money on the new M/T KM2 tire.

Just looked at pictures of your Power Wagon, Is that the stock set up and what size are your tires? Is the Power Wagon suspension the same as the 2500?
It is all stock except for the tires. I replaced the stock 285-70-17 BFG A/T's with 35x12.50-17 BFG M/T's. The PW suspension is different from regular 2500s - different shocks, different coil springs.

The tire I have is a Les Schwab Brand, it's their Mud Terrain SXT's made by Dean Tires: http://www.lesschwab.com/tires/light_truck/sxt_mt.asp or http://www.deantires.com/us/en/ProductDetails.asp?ProdType=LtTruck&id=272&title=Light+Truck+Tires and they show the width at 12.87, and the height at 34.88.

So they sit higher stock than the 2500? I didn't know if it was like a 3500 or something along those lines
