Wobbly tire on a Mantec

Just installed my Mantec rear tire carrier and my spare is wobbling even when the lug nuts are tightened all the way to the bottom of the thread on the post. Anyone encountered this before? I've got a Freestyle wheel, 265/75/16 bfg's.

Figured I could cut some pipe to put behind the wheel, but I'm surprised this thing wasn't designed to work with this wheel already...

Mine was fine ... I can't recall if it has washers at the base of the thread ...

The Mantec does NOT come with the threaded washers...I used my old ones from my tire carrier and threaded them on. I initially didn't put them on and the spare was wobbling like you described.

The threaded washer sounds like the right solution. Never had any on the previous door-mounted carrier though. Any idea where to find a set of three?

Not off the top of my head, BUT I'm sure it's in the parts catalog (http://www.landroverweb.com/Pdf-file..._Catalogue.pdf) and if you can find the proper # here check AB/RN/RDS or if no go there then LRSeries.com or Paddock Spares.

OR get an M16 tap and cut some threads into some round bar, then chop off 3 pieces, about 5mm thick (that's what my Mantec has got on it, and a normal steel wheel nut behind these pieces, the wheel stays on nicely then)
