Ok, I just had a flowmaster 50 installed with dual intake and discharge. They routed the driver side discharge around my spare tire and the clearance between the pipe and tire is about 3". I was wondering what kind of clearance everyone else has and heat degrading my spare tire.

If you have 3" of clearance between the pipe and the tire you are fine. Both of mine are down the passenger side and I don't think that there is even 2"s of clearance and I have never had an issue.
I would make sure that you have plenty of clearance between the pipes and the brake line and wiring that run from the body to the axle.

Wife might not agree but, you are fine with 3"

Be very sure the wiring is well away from the heat (voice of experience).............
