How to Determine if the Yakima KingPin Bike Rack will Clear Spare Tire of a 2007 Toyota 4Runner  


What is the distance between and center of the pinhole on the part that is ed into the trailer hitch and the end facing the spare tire? I have a 2007 Toyota 4Runner, and the distance between the pinhole and the spare tire is 4.5 . Will this product work? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The distance from the upright mast of the Yakima KinPin Bike Rack part # Y02458 to the hitch pin hole is 8 inches.

Since you have a distance of 4-1/2 inches from the pin hole on your 2007 Toyota 4Runner to the outside of your spare tire this rack should work well for you. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
