Expert Answers about Honda Spare Tire Bike Racks


  • Recommended Spare Tire Mounted Bike Carrier
  • If you can lighten your bikes down to 75 lbs total then the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack item # TH963PRO will work. This is our highest capacity spare tire bike rack. It will work with all current vehicles with factory rear-mounted spare tires. It fits tires up to 12.5" wide x 33" in diameter. The carrier will not fit vehicles with spare-tire-mounted backup cameras. If you have a vehicle with a spare tire camera, like a Jeep, you can use the Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier item # HRSR1....

We've never heard of a factory installed spare tire mount on a vehicle failing because a spare tire mount bike rack was used, the rack should work just fine for you.

  • 2019 Jeep Wrangler Spare Tire Bike Rack Compatible with Back Up Camera
  • The issue with the newer Jeep backup camera is the location of the camera as well as obstructed views when the rack is installed.

  • Recommended Method to Transport 2 Bikes on 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara
  • The best way to transport bikes on your 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara is to install a trailer hitch like Curt Class III hitch # C13001 and to then use a hitch-mount bike carrier. The advantages of using a hitch-mount rack are higher overall bike/weight capacity than any spare-tire-mounted rack, the ability to use the hitch for other items such as a cargo carrier # C18151 or for towing, and that your bike rack's and bikes' combined weight is carried by the vehicle's frame - it's strongest part.

  • Can Spare Tire on 2017 Jeep Wrangler Handle Weight of Spare Tire Mounted Bike Rack
  • I was unable to confirm the 85 lb figure you mentioned, but if that's the case I'd recommend using a hitch mounted bike carrier rather than one that attaches to the spare tire. To determine which bike rack would fit and properly clear your spare tire, you'll need to take a measurement outlined in the help article I've linked for you. Measure rearward from the hitch pin hole to the point where the spare tire is cleared. You'll want to choose a bike rack that has a shank with a hitch pin...

  • How to Determine if a Bike Rack Will Clear a Spare Tire
  • It depends on how much space you have between your hitch pin hole and the outside edge of the spare tire. The closest part of the Swagman Original RV Bike Rack item # S64152-2, you were looking at, sits 9-3/4" from the hitch pin hole. You'll want to measure from the hitch pin hole to the edge of your spare to see if it'll work. If it doesn't work go ahead and email me back and if you could send a picture or the rear of your trailer that would really help me find a solution to your question.
