Default 285x70 R17 tires on my Silverado

Not sure if this is the right place, but I'm looking at putting 285x70R17 tires on my 2007 silverado half ton. I know they won't fit stock so I was going to raise the front 2 inches. My question is, will a spare of the same size fit in the spare tire holder? Has anyone else put this size tire on their silverado 1/2 ton?

Thanks!
