So I got to fully answer my own question...

In the picture the wife's 27.5" hardtail is 'over' the spare. Hard to see, but it has a couple inches of clearance from the bike tire to the spare. I could adjust the rack up or out to make it work too, but I didn't have to adjust anything - yeah! Dancing

215/70/16 tires on a RMW carrier, North Shore 4-up mnt bike rack.

Same question but I have a North Shore Rack (4-up)

Similar to this (but not on a FJ)

I think it'll work, and the rack rack has up/down and in/out adjustment in case it needs it.


Still, I'd like to see someone with a RMW swing out, a 215/70/16, and a North shore rack all mounted.

(or some measurements from a RMW swing out owner, relating the wheel to the body)
