Will Mountain Bike Tires 2-1/2 Inches Wide Fit Swagman Semi 2.0 2-Bike Rack Cradles  


I have a 2006 jeep Liberty sport with a spare tire on the rear. I see this rack has a 12inch clearance from the center of the receiver to the closet part of the rack. My son has a Downhill Mtn bike and the tires are 2 1/2 inches at the widest part. Can the size of these tires be strapped in on this bike rack? I just returned a Thule rack similar to this and the straps for the tires were not long enough to even connect. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The maximum tire width that the Swagman Semi 2.0 2-Bike Rack, part # S64685 can handle is 3 inches.

Since you said the widest width of the tires for your son's mountain bike is 2-1/2 inches, this carrier will work well for you.
