Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for a 2000 Honda CR-V  


Wondering why the Yakima spareride 2 bike carrier wont fit on a 2000 Honda CRV. The years it fits is 2002 -2007. Thanks ,


Expert Reply:

The Yakima SpareRide part # Y02599 is not listed as a fit for your 2000 Honda CR-V, but you can measure the rear spare of your vehicle to find out if it would in fact fit. The tech notes for this rack are:

Fits spare tire widths P195 to P318 (12.5”). Will not fit a spare tire mount with an 8-hole bolt pattern or hole-pattern diameter greater than 5.5”.

Or for a similar carrier that is confirmed to fit your vehicle you would want the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack # TH963PRO.

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.
