  • U-Bolt Style
  • CE Smith
  • No Lift

Heavy-duty carrier lets you safely mount a spare trailer tire in a sleek way. It features an offset design that provides extra clearance and crossed U-bolts for added strength, and it resists corrosion. Holds 4-lug and 5-lug wheels up to 15".


Features:

  • Heavy-duty carrier provides a mounting point for your trailer's spare tire
  • Offset design ensures that the tire sits farther away from the ground and from your boat
  • Crossed U-bolt design reinforces strength and increases weight capacity
    • Includes 1 standard set and 1 longer set of U-bolts
  • Galvanized steel carrier and zinc-plated hardware are sturdy and resists corrosion
  • Zinc coated mounting hardware (included) resists corrosion


Specs:

  • Application: trailer frames 1" to 3-1/2" wide x up to 4" tall
  • Fits: 4-lug and 5-lug wheels, up to 15"
    • Compatible with 4 on 4, 5 on 4-1/2, and 5 on 4-3/4 bolt patterns
    • Not compatible with 5 on 5 or 5 on 5-1/2 bolt patterns
  • Trailer mounting U-bolt dimensions (center to center):
    • Width: 2"
    • Height: 4-1/2"
  • Wheel mounting surface:
    • Width: 3"
    • Height: 6-1/8"
    • Bolt hole spacing (center to center): 4-1/2"


Dimensions

This sturdy spare tire carrier mounts to the trailer tongue in the front of the trailer. The offset design moves the tire and wheel up and away from the trailer frame to improve ground clearance. No drilling is required to install the carrier because the included U-bolts clamp the carrier to the trailer frame. The crisscross design increases the holding power of the U-bolts.


Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel parts are hot-dipped in zinc after being stamped. This creates a coating that is typically 3 mil to 5 mil thick. This thick, all-around coating allows galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding.

This was perfect for mounting my small snowmobile trailer tire with a slight modification. I wanted a side mounted spare holder and there are not any that I could find for my trailer tire. I used this mount but modified it slightly using one of the hubs I replaced on my trailer to mount to this. See photos.



by:

Appears well built and installed easily. Good galvanized coating. As others have said you may need to cut the bolts after installing so they don’t rub the tire.

All good. Minor surface rust on the threads that hold the tire, but the test is fine. I live near the beach where you quickly learn if a part has a good galvanized coating or not.



by:

Well made & should last a long-long time. Fits perfect in the location I chose on front of trailer. I used a bike locking device I already had lying around to secure spare tire to trailer.

After a year the spare tire Carrier is rock solid and looks pristine since it is galvanized. Well made!



by:

Spare tire mount installed quickly and feels very secure on my boat trailer frame. Spare wheel is galvanized and should hold up well over the years. Appreciate the quick delivery guys: Etrailer ROCKS!

do you have a spare wheel carrier that will fit my 215 60 8 bias tire - the one i ordered doesn't fit at all - thank you -

I wanted to see if you could explain in more detail or send a picture of how the spare tire carrier is not working with your tire. Are you using it with the same tire that was in your previous order?



by:

Great find for my trailer.



by:

It does what it is supposed to do. It holds my spare wheel and tire on my Bass boat trailer. Simple install. Just make sure you get a locking lug nut or cable lock so your spare stays safe and secure.



by:

installed the tire carrier horizontally on my trailer, otherwise the tire hits the ground. very sturdy. a little disappointed in the weld job.

The nuts loosen up a couple times. I had to install lock nuts. Otherwise it works like a charm.



by:

Excellent bracket holding up very well. I had an unusual mount point and it worked very well.



by:

As soon as I received the CE Smith Offset Spare Tire Carrier I proceeded to install it on my boat trailer and it’s a perfect fit!!!! I’ve very much happy I chose y’all’s services, thank you. Colin Mason



by:

Finally my old utility trailer has a real spare tire mount. Easy install. Thanks!



by:

Tire carrier works great, need to get a spare to put on the one on my second trailer.

Mounted perfectly to trailer frame and spare wheel

Both have been great, no issues.

Worked perfectly on the tongue of a v-nose cargo trailer



by:

This spare tire mount works and fits perfectly. Thank you Kaylyn for recommending this one when the one I ordered was out of stock. This was super easy to install (under 5 minutes), looks great and works great.



by:

I was looking for a sturdy spare tire bracket for my 5x8 utility trailer that I pull quite often out of town. This one is very stout and affixed well to my trailer. It was very easy to install and a good design.



by:

Included bolts stripped quickly and had to be replaced, neither of the u-bolt sets included fit properly and had to be reshaped to fit trailer tongue/frame. Bracket itself is sturdy and was able to be welded to the trailer. Overal decent purchase but I recommend getting stronger attaching hardware



by:

Thought I should have a spare tire/wheel for my trailer, and then needed a carrier. This worked out great where I decided to place it. I ended up welding it to an existing brace.



by:

I need a place to mount my spare tire on my drop down trailer door and this looked like it would work and it worked great. Four 3.5" x 7/16" bolts and nuts and it was done. My experience with this etrailer and the people that work here was great.



by:

Glad I purchased this model. All the hardware was fine, no complaints. Only way it would fit my trailer was to turn it sideways and bolt it up with carriage bolts. Drilled 4 holes and it was done. Very pleased with it.



by:

Excellent service. Easy to use website filled with every conceivable product for one-stop shop at reasonable price and it came to my home. quickly. Looks great on the trailer.



by:

The tire carrier was very easy to mount, took about 15 minutes from box to spare tire in place.



by:

Had a blowout on Sunday coming home from lake and had to leave my boat at friends house! That is not happening again! So I ordered this mount and a spare wheel and tire. Fits perfect and installation took 5 minutes!



by:

Just got the part today mounted it to trailer in a jiff.Very solid tire mount.Just as discribed.Would highly recommend this one.



by:

I have purchased CE Smith products in the past, a brand which I have come to like. This spare tire carrier is thick enough material making it plenty sturdy for its purpose. Its hot dipped galvanized where it will outlast anything painted or powder coated. Its very simple design allows it to be mounted in various applications. I am using it for a 12" wheel which it is more than sturdy for. Thanks again etrailer.com!

  • Spare Tire Carrier Recommended for 2-1/2 Inch Square Tube Aluminum Trailer Frame

  • How to Determine Overall Size of Inflated Trailer Tire
    A trailer tire of size ST195/75-15 when mounted and fully inflated will have a width of just under 7-3/4-inches. It will have an overall diameter of approximately 26-1/2-inches. The linked article will show how to determine these dimensions for any tire size. I also linked our range of trailer frame-mount spare tire carriers like # CE27310G.

  • Spare Tire Carrier for 2" x 3" Trailer Frame
    The CE Smith Offset Spare Trailer Tire Carrier # CE27310G will fit your trailer's 2" x 3" bumper just fine, though you are going to need to check your trailer's owner's manual or with the manufacturer to ensure the bumper is rated for use with clamp-on accessories. If not, this carrier also fits frames that are from 1" to 3-1/2" wide x up to 4" tall so you may have a way to mount it on your frame.

Additionally, it can be mounted vertically so long as the panels on your trailer are pliable enough that they allow the carrier's U-bolots to fit around the tubes you referenced.

  • Location of Spare Tire Carrier to be Installed on Trailer Frame
    Essentially, you can install a spare tire carrier anywhere it will fit. I recommend placing it on the tongue as far back from the coupler as possible without interfering with anything. This will push its weight as far back as possible on the trailer. I've linked our selection of frame mounted spare tire carriers for trailer frames like the CE Smith # CE27310G. This one is for frames up to 3-1/2 by 4 inches and will fit rims that have a 4 on 4, 5 on 4-1/2, and 5 on 4-3/4 bolt pattern.

  • Is Hardware for CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier Galvanized or Zinc Plated
    I checked with CE Smith on the spare tire carrier # CE27310G. The mount itself is galvanized but all other parts (the hardware) is zinc plated. I checked all of the spare tire carriers we offer, see link, and all similar models also use zinc plated hardware and all others except this CE Smith carrier also use zinc plating on the main mount.

  • Could CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier CE27202 Be Used Horizontally On Trailer Tongue?
    The CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier - Locking - Steel - 4-Lug and 5-Lug Wheels - 8-3/4" # CE27202 will fit horizontally as long as your tongue is not more than 3" tall, but I do not recommend it as it will have half of the tire sticking below the frame which could cause it to scrape on the ground. Instead I recommend the CE Smith Offset Spare Trailer Tire Carrier - Galvanized Steel - 4- and 5-Lug Wheels # CE27310G which is offset so it will raise the tire further to give additional ground...

  • Spare Tire Carrier for 2019 Aluma 6818 ESW Utility Trailer
    I don't offer anything specifically designed for your situation, with the low sidewalls (more of a lip, really) on your Aluma 6810. You could use something such as the CE Smith # CE27310G but you'd need to devise your own way to mount it to the trailer sidewall, probably by through-bolting it. It's very possible that the sidewall is stout enough to handle this, but without knowing what the interior structure of that sidewall is I'd recommend you play it safe by making sure you either tied...

  • Does the Size of the Center Bore Matter When Selecting 5 Lug Spare Wheel/Tire for Trailer
    The center bore is more or less irreverent when using lug piloted wheels which are most common on trailers. The center bore simply needs to fit over the hub which is rarely an issue. I have attached a list of all our wheel/tires that use a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. I would be glad to make a recommendation if you can provide the tire size. If you don't already have a spare tire carrier, take a look at the CE Smith Offset Spare Tire Carrier part # CE27310G.

  • Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for Carrying a Tire Horizontally on a Trailer.
    We do not carry any spare tire mounts that were designed to mount the tire horizontally, but we have a few mounts that you could make work. For example, you could use the CE Smith Offset Spare Tire Carrier, # CE27310G, and use a 2 inch block to take up the additional width in the u-bolts. This would give the u-bolts a snug fit around the width and height of the frame and allow you to mount the tire horizontally. You could also use a carrier like the Fulton F2 Heavy-Duty Spare Tire Carrier,...

    The CE Smith Offset Spare Trailer Tire Carrier # CE27310G has a measurement of 4-1/2" from the outer wheel mounting plate to the trailer plate. Assuming that your wheel has a 0" offset, your tire is 6-1/2" wide so you will have a 3-1/4" from the inner wheel face to the inside tire sidewall. Therefore you will be able to mount the spare wheel and tire with the 4 on 4" lug pattern on the carrier.
