That's a 32 inch tire. It won't fit in the stock spare location. You'll need to get a mount or put it inside. I keep mine mounted on a roof rack.

2007 XK Limited, 5.7L Hemi, QDII, Rusty's 2" lift, Spidertrax 1.5 inch wheel spacers, GetLost4x4's front hitch mount for portable winch.GY Duratracs 265/70R17s , Rola Roof Rack, diy built spare tire mount for the roof rack.

A 255/75/17 GY Silent Armor will fit in the stock location, deflated with the hitch mod done.

If it's a MT tire it may not fit, but I'd think most AT's will. 255/70/18 and 255/75/17 are basically identical in size so it will be tight and will almost certainly need to be deflated to fit.

(I know 255/75/17 GY's will fit because that is exactly what I have in the spare location currently..)
