I'd add...if you are not going with a proper tire carrier, consider moving the wheel as far back as possible on the stock carrier by removing the retaining nut and moving the backing washer all the way back.
I'm not an engineer but IMO this takes some stress off the door frame. My 97 rear door still opens and closes with two fingers even with a 255/85 tire and Jesus heavy Wolf wheel.
