The concept is GREAT! The durability not so great. There could be many improvements to make it a great product. Such as; a round wheel plate with various holes to fit different wheels, and beef up the structure by 50% to handle a 6' x 10' trailer, spare tire. This carrier would be ideal for a small Tractor Supply trailer. Again it is a great concept. Thank you



by:

I ordered a spare tire mount for a utility trailer. The product is excellent, Easy installation great customer service.shipping was fast



by:

I bought this spare tire carrier for my atv trailer that has the angle iron railings and it works perfectly!!



by:

The mount is great to use on a trailer that uses angle iron as the framework. Easy to mount and very stable.



by:

This is a great system for holding your spare tire. Keep in mind that it only fits angle iron up to 2 inches on each dimension. My trailer has 2x3 inch angle iron, so I had to drill a hole through the vertical part of the angle iron to mount the carrier. Still, it's great to have my spare up and out of the way.



by:

Works great low profile spare was inside the edge of the fender I did put stronger mounting screws for my peace of mind but it would work with parts included.



by:

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.



by:

HI, this solution is great, wasn't perfect for my installation, but as close as you can get! First of all my rails are 3"X2" so they were too wide to put the bolt and square washer on to hold. I drilled a hold and mounted it center on a downward angle iron, no issue. It's just a more solid mount now. Then the tire when mounted was rubbing on the top rail. Soooo I put a lock washer and an M12 nylon bolt to hold the tire mount bolts on. This added about 2MM of space out from the mount so the tire would not rub on the rail. Very happy with this solid solution. Additionally the weld on the mount is slightly not square. You can see this by the tire gaps front to rear. It is slightly skewed but not a problem. Hope this helps anyone else with wide rails. Enjoy! And thanks!



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

It took awhile to get the package, the shipping was delayed not your fault
haven't installed yet



by:

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.



by:

Tire mounting bolts and nuts are cheap but the tire mount itself is good



by:

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.



by:

Very well built. Works well.
Shipping
was prompt.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

I drilled and tapped an 8"X3"X1/4" flat bar. I used 2" grade 8 1/2-20 bolts and lug nuts. Having ridged studs makes mounting the spare much easier.



by:

Had to get a little creative with the final mount (drill bottom hole instead of clamp), but overall a great design. Hard to find anywhere else - once again, well thought out for angles and channels.



by:

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!



by:

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

Quick and Easy install. Mount ensures you will have the spare tire available without taking up room in the bed of the truck.

1 year later and still working great no issues so far



by:

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..



by:

Does not fit the rim well. Inlue of returning I had to add multiple washers to tighten it up. Hard to explain but it was the 'pinching' of the center hub and rim that had too much space on the shaft. It works with washers now, but looks like a hack. Perhaps the tire size is too small.

  • Recommended Solution for Tire Carrier on Hudson Trailer with 6" Tall Channel Frame
    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. After looking up the style of trailer that Hudson typically made (deckover with channel frame), it appears that something like the etrailer Spare Tire Carrier for Trailer with Angle-Iron Railing - Clamp On # e99045 might work for you.

    The bolts that come with the etrailer Spare Tire Carrier for Trailer with Angle-Iron Railing # e99045 are M12 size bolts which you could use a locking lug nut designed for that size with. Since that size is pretty rare a better option might be the part # e98892.

    The only available trailer spare tire carrier we have for wheels with a 5 on 5 bolt pattern will be something like the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier with Wheel Nut Lock # FETCSTL0701.

    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. We do not have the specific wheels you have, but we do have similar options. If you want the aluminum wheel with the tire installed, I recommend the Castle Rock ST225/75R15 Radial Tire w/ 15" Liger Aluminum Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 - LR D - Black # LH29FR.
