Do I need a stronger spare tire carrier for a 35" tire?

Do i need a stringer spare tire carrier then stock for a 35" tire?? I am planning on 18X9 wheels with 285/75R18 tires. Can my stock location support that much weight on a 16' rubicon?

Weight varies per tire make/model so that info is important to make a determination. In most cases I would say replace it to be safe.

Yikes!! Just looked it up. Looks like stock is 72lbs and my new ones will be 107lbs. That is way more then I assumed it would be. Thanks for the advice!!
