Hitch install with 245/75R17

So i decided to install my $40 junkyard hitch this afternoon, with a little modification it fit fine. First I cut the four mounting bolts flush with the nut on the back of the hitch, I decided not to grind down any of the 2" tube as i got the spare to fit without doing that.... don't get me wrong its a tight fit as you can see, if it bothers me I'll drop the spare and grind it a little. You do have to work the spare in a little but at least I've got a full size spare if i even need it
