Ideal spare tire carrier for a utility trailer with angle iron side rails. Easy installation and adjustable for any bolt pattern rim.

The only thing I would say is that I added a piece of 2 by 4 between the uprights on the trailer to eliminate the vibration for the cantilever design of the bracket. Problem solved.
Corny - 09/10/2021

Well, the spare tire carrier was on backorder for 4 months, but it was worth the wait. Easy to install. No problem meeting the 50 lbs. torque required as some reported. With the exception of a trailer tongue box which I have yet to purchase, this was the last element for this remodel of my father's 20 year old trailer.

- e99045

Perfect solution for angle iron mounting on my utility trailer. Was able to locate it directly above vertical upart of railing which gives it more stability. Fits my 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern, should be listed in the description. Only reasons for 4 instead of 5 stars is no way provided to keep wheel mounting bolts from falling out or moving around when trying to mount wheel, plus need for two wrenches to tighten the wheel nuts. I bought a couple of 7/16” lock washers with the teeth in them that thread on the bolts to keep bolts in and help keep them adjusted to correct width. Haven’t pulled trailer anywhere yet so don’t know how well everything will hold up.

- e99045

The parts arrived sooner than expected. Material is very solid and the well made. Excellent product as always from etrailer. You can buy with confidence.

- e99045

Thank you. The tire mount works like a charm. Easy installation. Great product

It’s been a Year and this product is still working like a charm! Thankfully I haven’t had to take the spare tire off so I can’t comment on that part. I recommend just making sure You have tools in case you need to remove it. Great product!

Installed the tire mount today. This mount was very easy to install, no modifications needed to fit the angle iron on my trailer. It feels very secure! One suggestion would be to include in the kit two retention clips for the tire mount bolts. Well built, excellent design, compact!!

- e99045

Made for an easy install of my spare tire, considering adding a second one. Have been using it for over a year.

- e99045

Been searching for a spare tire carrier like this forever. Works great on small utility trailer with angle iron railing.

was a little shaky at first when mounted to horizontal angle iron rail. Moved mount closer to a vertical support and all is good now
Jamie - 10/05/2021

- e99045

For the most part it is a nice spare tire carrier - very easy to install - only negative thing to me is that you have to have two wrenches to take the spare off or put on - can be an easy fix with a quick trip to the hardware store

- e99045

Quick and easy installation. A really nice, no welding, solution to providing the ability to carry a spare trailer tire.

- e99045

Product was as advertised and of good quality. Perhaps a little high in price, but then you often get what you pay for. Instructions were clear. The only issue I encountered was that the Angle Iron Attachment Bracket fits only 2” angle iron trailer rails. My trailer has 3” angle iron which required drilling a hole for the bracket’s carriage bolt. This wasn’t a major problem and in fact is a stronger attachment as it is through bolted rather than clamped. I realize most trailers are 2” angle iron, but think it should be pointed out that anything other than 2” angle iron may require adjustments or modifications. Otherwise completely satisfied with product, would recommend it. Only gave 4 stars in the hope that someone will read review and notify people in product description.

- e99045

At 1st, great product only lasted a month or so, the screw that locks the wheel broke loose, as well as the tiny lock screw bolt that locks to the frame. Disappointed, and now I just throw the spare tire on the bed of the trailer.

- e99045

This spare tire carrier is perfect for installation on angle-iron railed utility trailers. The product was delivered on time and the directions were easy to follow. The entire installation took about 15 minutes. I installed the device behind my trailer axle to add a little weight to the back end. This reduced the tongue weight for manual lifting and maneuvering of the empty trailer.

- e99045

Sp far so good. i installed this yesterday and will be taking a long trip tomorrow to see how it does. Installation was simple I recommend watching the video.

- e99045

My trailer tires are small, so I had to buy longer bolts to get the tire to mount. Otherwise it works great.

Spare tire carrier has been working great for 1year now.

This was a little disappointing. First, the bolts supplied with the carrier, to hold the wheel on, are hardware-store grade, where they *should* be of the same size and thread as the lugs on the trailer. There should also be beveled lug nuts, to center the wheel properly. The square washer supplied is not large enough to properly secure the carrier when using the lowest hole; had to find some larger washers. Does it work? Kinda. Is it right? Nope.

- e99045

This is a decent design to hold a spare tire on an angle iron rail however it was not very stiff once the weight of the spare tire was on it. It was able to wobble around and I'm not sure how this would fare with road vibrations over time. I solved this problem by placing it above one of the frame rails running to the tongue. The weight of the tire is supported by the trailer frame instead of the spare mount.

- e99045

THIS IS A REALLY GOOD MOUNT. I would have given it 5 stars except for 2 issues. There is a weld that interferes with a flush, solid fit to the trailer rail. Second, the M6 grade 5 (or less) screw and nut that holds the small plate to the rail broke at about 40 foot pounds of torque to the main M12 bolt. I had to replace it with a grade 8 cap screw and nut and then I was able to achieve the recommended 50 ft. torque specification.

- e99045

Product didn’t hold up, and I was denied for replacement or refund because the date of my claim has exceeded manufacturer’s 30-day (?) warranty. That was the very last item I purchased from your company, and since stopped all my referrals.

- e99045

This clamps onto an angle iron style rail, but if the rail is thin, the tire may be too heavy and cause the rail to twist under it's weight. I had to mount my tire up front so it could be supported on the hitch. Otherwise, it holds the tire nicely.

- e99045

Easy to mount until putting the tire on the bracket.I can put nuts on the bolts to hold the bolts in place while putting tire on bolts.Other than that it seems to be ok.

- e99045

My experience installing this spare tire mount wasn’t as smooth as the one the etrailer employee in the vid had. I followed the written instructions to the letter and when I torqued the tire holder arm to the trailer mount to the required 50 Lbs. The small holder bolt on the mount sheared in half and the whole thing popped off. Luckily I had a few extra carriage bolts and nuts lying around so I tried again and broke another. The instructions illustration shows the nut over the square washer sitting nice and flat on the trailer angle iron frame with half of the washer in the air, nothing to lay on, the trailer frame is only so wide. This invites a situation for the square washer to sag and thus bending the bolt towards the edge of the trailer frame. Not the best design. I drilled two additional holes through the mounting plate and through my trailer frame and bolted it securely. It was either that or weld. I want to be able to take it off. It’s not pretty but it’s solid and won’t come off now.

- e99045

Part came in a respectable time.. Works like a charm on angle iron utility trailers.. Very sturdy.. Super easy install.. Like 10 minutes.. One man job..

- e99045

It's great! Very easy to install and se cure.

- e99045

Was worried this would flex too much; haven't towed with it yet, but seems OK. Easy to install, has some flex if you pull on it, but seems secure enough for actual use.

  • Measuring Wheel Bolt Pattern To Confirm Fitment On a Spare Tire Carrier
    The etrailer Spare Tire Carrier # e99045 is referring to the bolt hole pattern of the wheel. 4 on 4 is a 4 lug wheel with 4" measured from the center of lug to the center of the opposite wheel lug. 5 on 5 is a 5 lug wheel with 5" measured from the center of lug to the center the imaginary circle line created on the hub.

    It sounds like this trailer has a 6" tall frame, which presents an issue since almost all of the spare tire carriers we have available are designed to fit on trailer frames no more than 5" tall, however I may have a solution that will work for you.

    Thanks for following up with the photo. I see that you have size 225/75/15 tires with the 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

  • Recommendation For Spare Tire 205/75R15 For Utility Trailer With Mount
    For the utility trailer I recommend the Castle Rock ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" Silver Spoke Wheel # LHACK114. This tire is of radial construction for great highway manners. It is filled with Nitrogen to help maintain the correct pressure as it will not leak down as easily as basic air. You can add air from a regular compressor if the air pressure does lower. It will not hurt it to not be topped off with nitrogen. The etrailer Spare Tire Carrier for Trailer with Angle-Iron...
