Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton-Lainson - DL22120

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (141 Customer Reviews)


I don’t normally take the time to write a review, but since Ian, in the service department, went “the extra mile”, I was motivated. I ordered a spare tire and mount, but the mount did not fit my trailer. Ian emailed me a return shipping label, researched alternatives, and kept me “up to date” on the status of the re-order thru email. The replacement mount was backordered, so I expected to receive it in a few weeks. To my surprise, it arrived in a few days. Great job etrailer !


Worked like a champ, although I had to add a spacer in order for the tire to clear the winch assembly but other than that it works great, the tire even acts as a convenient step for climbing into the front of the boat during launching into the water.


Offset spare tire carrier looks to be a good quality piece that will replace my old tired factory trailer spare tire carrier. I have yet to install it but It's manufactured in the USA. Support America by buying products like these


Excellent tire carrier, very sturdy and great looking. It appears to be able to carry elephant, not just a spare tire but it is rated only for a 14” tire. This is the only caveat.



It’s fine!


I bought 2 wheels and 3 tires to replace some old tires on my double PWC trailer. Put both new wheels on yesterday and mounted the extra on an old wheel for a spare. Mounted this to the trailer using spare tire carrier and everything worked out great. The tires and wheels look great and the spare mounted without any problems to the trailer.


This is excellent quality, very heavy duty and fits perfect on my mom a boat trailer with 15 inch spare


Well constructed...would have liked the frame attachment bolt pattern match DL's swing jack. Wheel mount bolts come with regular hex head nuts and not standard wheel lug nuts - need to carry the right wrench/socket with the tow vehicle!

Excellent product. All hardware was included and install was easy. Product is robust in build and of a good quality build with a good- weather resistant finish. This product is a fine addition to my trailer project.


Made well but had to modify to fit my 4.80x8 rim.

I wanted to ask more about the modifications that you needed to make to fit the rim on.


I bought this tire mount along with a tire for my tandem boat trailer. The quality of the finish and hardware will allow this to last for a long time. The product description and shipping have sold me on


Received the spare tire holder and lock right on time. Great quality and am very satisfied. Will purchase from here again.


Pretty easy took about 20 minutes. Thought I might not have enough clearance to mount it on the side, but I did. Just want to thank William for his expertise. Sorry it took so long it’s been raining a lot lately. Good day.


Works great


Very good quality and the right color for my aluminum trailer. I decided to take a risk and mount it directly to the sidewalk but it seems really solid. Hoping for years of reliable service...


All of your products were of very good quality and fit perfectly the first time. Thank you for being genuine. I especially appreciate you selling Dutton Lainson products, as I grew up in Hastings, NE. They are a very good manufacturer.


Super fast shipping. Product was of pretty good quality and very easy to install. I put both my spare tires on the trailer and it looks great.


Great service! Fast shipping! Great pri ce!


This is a quality tire. Bought as a spare for my boat trailer.


Great product, does what I need, it arrived on time and price was fair.


Seems solid and well built. Easy installation. I had to mount it to the side of the rear bumper next to the bracket so there was less wobble. That was due to the bumper on my camper, not the bracket. We'll find out more as I get more miles on it.

Jeep G.


Tire carrier is sturdy easy to install. Saved me room inside my camper. Highly recommend!


Sturdy bracket...seems worth the cost.


I finally got it mounted on my trailer. It fit well once the rough spots on the bolts were dealt with but this is common on bolts with coatings on them. It is going to be nice to finally have the spare out of my pickup bed and on the trailer where it belongs.



After a year it is still working well. Great product


Fit my trailer. Easy to install. Clear instructions.


Good product and fast service .will order again .


Just what was needed.

  • Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for a 15 inch Wheel With 6 Lugs
    I would recommend you get a Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier # FHDSTC0101. This carrier will fit most 6 lug wheels with up to a 16-1/2 inch diameter so it should work well for your 15 inch wheel. The Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 that you referenced will only work on trailer wheels up to 14 inches in diameter so it would not work for you.

  • Does Dutton-Lainson Trailer Spare Tire Carrier DL22120 Have a Weight Capacity
    The Dutton-Lainson Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 that you referenced does not have a listed weight capacity. This is simply because it's rated to handle the weight of any 14" tire and wheel combo. As long as your tire/wheel combo is 14" or smaller you can be sure that the carrier is up to the task. I have attached a short video demonstration below that you can also check out.

  • Will Dutton-Lainson Spare Tire Carrier Fit 4-1/2" Tall Frame
    The mounting bolts on the Dutton-Lainson Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 are vertically adjustable, allowing for frames as tall as 5". The bolts will line up perfectly with your 4-1/2" tall I-Beam frame.

  • Do Torsion Axles Come with Hubs and How Do they Attach to a Trailer Frame
    We do not currently carry any torsion axles unless you count the Timbren Axle-less systems. I have included a link to the axles that we carry. Torsion axles will normally have what is basically a long L-bracket welded to the top of them. The standard method of attachment is to bolt them directly to the bottom of the trailer frame. Torsion axles are not as easy to order from tractor or trailer supply shops because you also have to consider start angle and articulation. Bolt size 5/8 inch...

  • Typical Spring Deflection of Torsion Trailer Axles
    Torsion axles can have different spindles with varying geometry. The specific spindle installed will have a specific range of deflection angle. The spindles on torsion axles can deflect as much as 4-inches between the unloaded and loaded conditions.

  • Why Can Dutton-Lainson Offset Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 Only be Used with Wheels Up to 14 Inches
    I checked into this with Dutton-Lainson, and the limitation on the # DL22120 offset spare tire has to do with the weight of the 15 inch tire and wheels, and not with the physical size. The welds on the carrier are not rated to handle the weight of standard 15 inch trailer tire and wheels. This carrier has a offset of 4-1/2 inches to the side and 4-3/4 upward. I pulled one from the warehouse and the wheel mounting plate measures 5-7/16 inches tall and 4 inches wide.

  • Spare Tire Carrier Recommendations for a Loadmaster Tampa Dual Axle Trailer
    Out of the spare tire carriers we have, I am sure that we will be able to find one that will hold the spare tires on your trailer. I have incldued a link to all of the options for you to view. Besides the space where you can mount a spare tire carrier or carriers, you will also need to make sure that the wheels have a compatible bolt pattern. For example, the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier, # DL22120, is designed for 9 to 14 inch wheels with 4 or 5 lugs, bolt circles up to 5-on-4-1/2....

  • Are There Any Spare Tire Carriers That Could Be Used On An I-Beam Frame
    We offer some clamp-on options, like the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 you were looking at, but they all have limitations on the size of the frame they can clamp onto. This carrier for example can fit frames up to 3" wide x 5" tall. Without knowing the size of the frame it's hard to say for sure if any of these options will work. Most likely you will have to drill into the frame and mount the carrier with some bolts.

  • Determining Bolt Pattern On Trailer Tire For Spare Tire Carrier # DL22145
    When you have an odd number of lugs you need to measure the distance between the center of one bolt hole to the center of the bolt hole adjacent to it. I have linked you to an FAQ article that shows how to determine the bolt pattern of your wheels. If you did measure the adjacent holes and they are 2-5/8 inches center to center, then your bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2. If after measuring you determine the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2, then the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton-Lainson,...

  • Spare Tire Carrier Capable Of Being Mounted To an RV Cargo Carrier
    With most RV bumper mounted cargo carriers I find the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 as being a great option to hang the spare tire off the back of the carrier. This has an offset to raise the spare tire up and reduce the chances of it dragging on the ground on steep driveways. You will likely need shorter mounting bolts as the ones included are designed to fit a frame up to 3" wide.

  • Frame Mounted Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for Good Ground Clearance
    For an offset spare tire carrier that would mount to the frame of your Little Guy Rough Rider trailer that would be high enough to give you good ground clearance check out the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton-Lainson # DL22120. This carrier can attach to a variety of frame sizes and would give you great ground clearance. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out as well.

  • Offset Style Spare Tire Carrier for 15 Inch Wheel
    We have actually reached out to Dutton-Lainson in the past regarding the specific reasoning as to why they don't recommend using wheels larger than 14 inches on the Offset Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120. They said that it's not the physical size that's an issue but the heavier weight that would be present on a larger wheel. The welds on this particular unit simply aren't rated to handle the weight of a standard 15 inch tire and wheel combo. For an offset style carrier that can support a...

  • Can Spare Tire Carrier Be Mounted On Trailer Wall
    From the photo you sent, it looks like you have aluminum trailer walls, so the first thing you will want to consider is the strength of the walls. Since the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier, part # DL22120 is designed to be mounted on a trailer tongue or frame, you will want to make sure that the location you choose is strong enough and able to handle the weight. You will want to consider strengthening the wall by reinforcing with a metal plate on the inside of the wall between the brackets...

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier for Aluminum Trailer Frame
    I do have some options for you but most of our marine spare tire carriers are zinc plated, not galvanized or stainless. That said, there should not really be any issues with this and the aluminum. I recommend the Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier part # FHDSTC0101 and Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton-Lainson part # DL22120. Please note, the frame is a bit wide for these so you may need to find some longer bolts but other than that they should fit great.

  • Bolt-On Spare Tire Carrier for Aluminum I-Beam Boat Trailer
    Our range of clamp-on trailer spare tire carriers is displayed on the linked page. You will want to choose one to both fit your frame dimensions and your spare's wheel bolt pattern. I like the Fulton # FSTC1000301 for its compatibility with both 4-lug and 5-lug trailer wheels and zinc coating. This fits frames up to 3-inches wide x 5-inches tall.

  • Recommended Spare 205/75-14 Spare Wheel/Tire for Boat Trailer
    The Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire with 14" Galvanized Wheel part # AM32156 will be an excellent spare wheel/tire for a boat trailer. It has a galvanized wheel which works best in water to resist corrosion and rust. This is a complete combo that comes ready to use in the size you need, both wheel and tire. If you don't already have a spare tire carrier, I recommend the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton part # DL22120.
