Officially, it's pretty low, 59 pounds I believe. The stock tire and wheel is around 50 pounds. In reality it'll hold more. I have my 35" and steel wheel on it now, and the amount of weight makes me nervous.
Please don't put anything bigger than a 33 on it. 35 if you have the bracket otherwise when you drop off of ledges, It will catch and tweak the entire tailgate. Happened already to a friend of mine with a 35 out back. Now he needs a new tailgate. That ****tybilt bracket works pretty good for a temporary fix.
or you can carve the plastic rear bumper to clear a 35 and not spend the $$ on the bracket extension.
a few reasons I went that route, #1 thats $40 ($30 + shipping) I can put towards buying a real bumper and at that point the spacer is useless, #2 I think tucking the tire up against the gate gives it less leverage to twist the tailgate
