Spare Tire Bike Rack Recommendation for 2000 Jeep Wrangler with 31x10.5R15 Tires  


I have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler with 31 x 10.5 R15 tires. Will this rack fit or do I need to modify? Another site has a review that states that you must provide some sort of lock so the rack doesnt fall off other reviews make installation sound pretty straightforward: remove spare tire and install plate, lugnuts and spare hold mount in it that simple?

For a wider spare tire like what you have on your 2000 Jeep Wrangler you would have to go with the Yakima Spare Ride part # Y02599 as it is the only one designed for the much wider off-road tires you have. It can fit tires that are up to 12-1/2 inches wide so yours that is 10-1/2 inches wide would be perfect.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 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.
