Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for 5 on 5 Bolt Pattern


It seems every tire mounting option no matter which product is not compatible with 5 on 5 bolt pattern. Is there anything I can bolt a 5x5 tire to that I can mount on 2x2 hitch shank? All I need is something with a high offset for an oversized wheel...

Depending on the configuration and mounting options on your trailer you may be able to use a spare tire carrier like the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier, part # FETCSTL0701. When used with a spare tire with a 5 on 5 bolt pattern the bracket can be bent to fit. This option does not offer any offset, but will work for 5 on 5. With this set up you will get the carrier and lock in one.

I went out to the warehouse and took a measurement of this part for you (see photo at right) to help you decide if it will work for your application.

I have included a video review of part # FETCSTL0701 for you to check out.

If you are interested in a hitch mounted spare tire carrier for a 2x2 hitch shank I recommend # Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # C31006. This spare tire carrier is a universal fit item designed to fit as many size tire/wheels as possible.

I have included a video review of part # C31006 for you to check out.
