Spare Tire Bike Rack Recommendation for Fitting Wheel that Doesnt Attach to Wheel Bolt Flange


hello, I have a 2013 Jeep wrangler unlimited and am looking for a bike rack to fit my spare tire. I have 33foot tires, but the problem is that my tire carrier is for oversized tires, which means my tire is not held in place by lugnuts, intead there is just a single pole an a crank lever that holds it in place. What are my options with possibly modifying something that would fit my carrier type

The best possible solution we have is the Hollywood Racks part # HRSR1 as it fits around the tire and then straps to the tire itself without using the spare tire mount. The only issue may be that is can only fit tires that are up to 15 inches wide. If your tire is less than 15 inches wide this would work well. 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 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.
