The tyre definitely rests on the rubber bungs.

My rear door spare hanging system has a small amount of damage (the internal door tyre support frame is slightly bent) so maybe not the best person to help. However I suspect that Jack is correct.
Looking at the tyre which is standard 205 if I could bend it all inline I would expect both rubber stops to just touch the tyre. As it is at the moment I have one pushed in by 4mm, the other clear by the same amount, ie by the same amount the mount on the door is bent.

Tried to bend it back but it will not budge :(

Edit :- Lambert posted as I typed, so It's confirmed. :lol:

I had to modify my carrier for the larger tyres and change of offset....I extended the rubbers back out to the tyres.....stops it wobbling.

It's your car.....take the rubbers out and let the spare do it's thang......unless it identifies as a huge weight hanging on a bracket.
