285/75/16 Falken MT-01 fit just fine with M226 and factory tow hitch.
If you really mean 285/85, it probably won't, I only have about an inch between tire and diff now.

Has anyone had issues with the spare 285/75s rubbing against the brake line? I was crawling around underneath the X Monday night and noticed I'm actively trying to rub through what I'm assuming is the e-brake line. I have the shrock rear bumper w/o tire carrier for reference.

Any tips for mitigating that would be awesome. This discovery pushed my purchase of a rear tire carrier farther to the top of my list but with lead times for maxterra & shrock I'll have to find a way to deal with this for a few months. I'll try to remember to get a picture tonight.
