CE Smith Spare Tire Carrier - CE27310G

  • 4-Bolt
  • 5-Bolt
  • Trailer
  • 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 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:

Fit perfectly on my small Magic Tilt trailer that came with my Boston Whaler Super Sport 130 boat. Trailer arm is 3" X 3", and wheels/ tires are 4.80 X 12". It provides good insurance in the event of a tire failure on a long road trip to the lake through remote wilderness.

Very neatly does the job


Comments
Working just fine, not one issue
Brian L - 03/24/2022


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:

I have an old MacGregor Venture 17' foot trailer, and I was looking for a decent bracket for a spare tire. This one is solidly built, reasonably priced, and just what I needed.

You can position the bracket in a variety of ways, and it's great that it comes with two sets of u-bolts, because I did need the larger set for my setup. I also appreciated that the u-bolt nuts are facing the tire rather than the opposite way, since that would make it fairly easy for someone to unbolt the bracket. The way these bolts are, with the tire securely mounted to the bracket, it is much more difficult to get a wrench back there.

The only issue I notice once I had the bracket where I wanted it was that one of the lower bolts just touched the tire rim, probably because my setup is a little unusual. It might not have made a difference, but I decided to trim the bolt down so it wouldn't rub on the rim while driving down the road.

Also, I have to mention that etrailer ships extremely fast! Within a couple of hours, my order was not only processed but was delivered to UPS for shipment. Most of the time, online shippers send you a message that a label has been created, but it doesn't ship for another day or two. Not etrailer, they did it all on the SAME DAY.




by:

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


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

by:

Worked well with my trailer




by:

Solid spare carrier that mounts anywhere on my square rail trailer. Will buy this model again if needed. Supports a spare on a 15” wheel without issue.




by:

The product appears to be of good qualities. True durability will not be known until April when the ice melts so I am able to haul my boat down the highway to my favorite fishing lakes.
Delivery was prompt, shipping tracking is outstanding however the product appeared to be shipped in a used/ damaged Box with multiple layers of clear shipping tape in an attempt to keep the heavy steel item to n the box. Needless to say the item was hanging out of the box upon arrival. Good thing this was not a fragile item. I will continue to order from etrailer, hopefully there will be improvements in how things are shipped.




by:

Quick and easy ordering. Tire came packaged well and looks great on the trailer.




by:

etrailer is great. The videos are great and the customer service is even better. I received my order in the time expected. Unfortunately the hardware didn’t make I?t but after a quick phone call etrailer corrected I?t within a few days.




by:

Outstanding quality and design. Exactly what I needed!




by:

Easily place the spare tire anywhere on the trailer.Galvanized which is important in salt water.




by:

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




by:

Delivered quickly, Excellent quality, Guide post video helped with measurements. I followed the instructions and boat went on easy and straight. Also makes a happy wife who was nervous to trailer boat!
Wheels and brackets are of good quality. Thank You.




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:

Great price, great quality and fast service and shipping. This is the best and only place to buy tires and trailer gear. The price I paid for two tires and wheels was less than I paid for a single tire I needed when one went flat on my last trip to lake Mead. Now with two spares I am no longer a victim of the " only tire shop open " Thank you .




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:

Mounted perfectly to trailer frame and spare wheel


Comments
Both have been great, no issues.
JC - 12/13/2017



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:

Great people to work with and they always have what I need!




by:

Worked good, I was able to situate it so the tire made a nice step getting over the boat bow when launching. Very happy.




by:

Just what I needed.




by:

Fast shipping and as advertised




by:

Order originally arrived with missing pieces. etrailer immediately replaced the order which arrived complete, no questions asked. Excellent service.

  • Choosing Spare Tire Carrier for Drift Boat Trailer
    The first step would be to determine the exact bolt pattern of the wheel. If you click the provided link, you'll be taken to an FAQ article that shows exactly how to do this. Once you determine the bolt pattern, you can compare that information with the specifications for the tire carriers you were interested in. The CE Smith # CE27310G fits 4 and 5 lug wheels, except for a 5 on 5 or a 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. It fits trailer frame members from 1 to 3-1/2 inches thick to 4 inches tall. I...

  • 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,...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • CE Smith Offset Spare Trailer Tire Carrier # CE27310G Wheel Mount Offset
    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.
