  • Recommended Spare Tire Bike Rack

  • Recommendation for Installing a Bike Rack on a 2006 Jeep Wrangler and Clear the Rear Spare Tire

  • Large Tire Adapter for Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack on Jeep JK with 35 Inch Tires
  • I'll start by clearing up some common confusion- the Thule Spare Me 2 # TH963PRO is the 2 bike rack and a Thule Spare Me is a single bike carrier, so the age of the bike rack won't matter. It looks like you've got the Spare Me 2 so you'll want to use the Replacement Mounting Plate # 753-3532, Replacement Long Mounting Bracket # 752-1425-002 and Replacement Long Standoff Extension # 852-3305-001 to adapt to the larger tires on your JK.

  • Parts Needed to Adapt Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack to Wider Spare Tire
  • Thule and Yakima do not test their replacement parts with each other's products so I cannot be sure of the compatibility of their Spare Me 2 bike rack with parts meant for Yakima products. You'll be better off using Thule parts to adapt your Thule rack to your wider spare tire. My contact at Thule advised you'll need a Replacement Mounting Plate # 753-3532, Replacement Long Mounting Bracket # 752-1425-002 and Replacement Long Standoff Extension # 852-3305-001.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation For Two Electric Bikes On A 2020 Surveyor Legend 202RKLE
  • I recommend something like the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # CC-275 which mounts to the tongue of your trailer and can support up to 100lbs. This way this will avoid the spare tire on the rear of your trailer, and this rack will go over your propane tanks and attach to the frame of the trailer. Alternatively, you can install a hitch to the rear of your trailer with # 13703 and a hitch extender like # BX88264 to push a bike rack out...

  • Will the Yakima RidegBack Bike Rack Clear The Spare Tire on My 2021 Jeep Wrangler?
  • The Yakima RidgeBack Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # Y02457 does not have any horizontal adjustment, however this bike rack does have a tilting feature when the bikes are unloaded which can allow for full rear-cargo access. Since you have a spare tire on the rear of your vehicle, I recommend using a hitch extender Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender for Tow Bars # RM-071-1075. This will push the receiver of your hitch on your 2021 Jeep Wrangler 7-3/4" to allow for more room for your spare tire.

  • Recommended Swagman Bike Rack for Use on an RV and a 2016 Jeep Wrangler with a Spare Tire
  • To be able to use a bike rack on your Jeep but also use it with your RV you will need to make sure you get a bike rack that is rated for use on an RV. The reason is because the hitch receiver is further away from the rear axle on an RV as opposed to that of a passenger vehicle. This results in a lot more play. Only certain bike racks have been tested and approved by their manufacturers to be used on an RV. Unfortunately neither the Swagman XTC # S64670 nor the XC # S64650 are rated for...

  • RV Tire Carrier Recommendation For A 2022 Winnebago Travato 59G
  • Since you can't use your bike rack as a spare tire carrier, you're going to have to use a dedicated spare tire carrier for your 2022 Winnebago Travato 59G. Instead, take a look at the: -etrailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # e98ZR. This spare tire carrier will slide into a 2" trailer hitch, and will accommodate a variety of tire sizes, and includes the mounting hardware to allow you to secure your tire to the carrier.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for GenZe E-Bikes Compatible with 2009 Toyota RAV4
  • I have a solution for you, and you're correct that there would not be a spare tire mounted rack that would allow you to carry heavy e-bikes like your GenZe's. Additionally, because the hatch on your 2009 Toyota RAV4 swings open from the side, you won't be able to just use a typical tilting platform rack to carry your bikes. With all of that said, you'll need to start by using the Yakima Back Swing # Y02483, which will allow you to remove the bike rack away from the rear of the vehicle...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Will Work With a Full-Size Spare On A 2022 Acura MDX?
  • Unfortunately, none of the hitches we carry for your Acura MDX is going to work with your full size spare tire. You can still use a hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C22HR you'd just have to remove the spare and won't be able to re-install it. Seeing as though that isn't really the best option, I recommend instead getting rid of your hitch bike rack and get a trunk mounted rack instead. Something like the Malone Hanger Trunk Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # MPG2139 would work great...

  • The RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10002 fits the exact description of what you are looking for in a bike rack to carry 2 bikes on your 2001 Toyota FJ Cruiser. It has the ability to tilt, swing-away, can fold up, and comes with hitch and bike locks to deter theft of your equipment.

  • Replacement Lock Core and Key Suggestion For Unknown Lock Core On A Thule Spare Me Bike Rack
  • Since your Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack - Spare Tire Mount - Folding Dual Arms # TH963PRO does not have any numbers on the lock core, the easiest thing you can do is use the universal change key # TH42BJ to remove the old lock core.

  • How to Determine Correct Hitch Extender for Bike Rack on Jeep Wrangler with Rear Spare Tire
  • To determine the length you need measure from the hitch pin hole on your Jeep's trailer hitch receiver out to the edge of the spare tire. Then add an inch or so to give you a little space. Some extenders are only designed to be used to flat tow a vehicle and not to hold any tongue weight so make sure you choose an extender that is designed for carrying accessories since you're going to use it for a bike rack. Part # C45795 is a great 14 inch option. 37 inch tires are normally 12 or...
