So we know that a 244/65/17 tire fits well a Bronco with the 1” lift kit. My question is will this tire fit the spare compartment in the trunk?

Can someone with a Badland measure the diameter and height of the spare tire compartment?
For Diameter it’s simple.
For height, it might be difficult to measure. If so, maybe just add some books (starting with one thin one) over the current spare tire and see if the lid closes. If it does add some books/objects until it doesn’t and then measure the height added by your books.

Just tried this out.

245/65r17 Falken Wildpeak fits snugly without trimming anything. (Badlands with tow package)

Tray sits 1/2” higher but is still snug. I could probably trim foam/sound deadening to buy some more space but it’s not bothering me currently.

I believe ossco removed all the foam crap and just puts extra stuff in small bags. That would free up space.
