Recommended Spare Tire Holder and Bike Rack For Rola Roof Basket

Question:

Ive bought a Rola roof tray for my Jeep as I want to carry a full spare wheel not the temporary one which came with the vehicle and my caravan spare wheel. I also want to carry my road bicycle and need to know a brick carrier brand which is compatible with the Rola tray as it appears Rola dont have anything via their website. Thanks

If you have the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 59504, there is not a spare tire carrier that is designed to fit. There are a couple of possible options with a little ingenuity like the Spare Tire Carrier for Rhino-Rack Alloy Tray Roof Cargo Carrier # RSWH or the Spare Tire Carrier for Yakima Roof Rack Cargo Baskets # Y07076.

In order for a bike rack to be compatible, you would need to add the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Extension # 59505 to give you the additional 18-3/4 inches. With the extension most bike racks will fit but you will sill need to customize the mounting a little as there is nothing confirmed as a direct fit. I recommend the Inno Tire Hold II Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # INA389 which will make mounting easy. The Malone Pilot TC ST Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # MPG2103 should also be an easy mounting style to work with for your application.

Thanks for your reply. I should have clarified that the Rola roof tray I bought was model no. FT2012 . Looking at the photo of the bike rack as suggested for the tray, would you confirm that bottom locking bracket can be removed to allow the rack to be attached flush with the tray using Rola mounting “T” bolts?

The Rola Titan tray will allow the Yakima HighRoad Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On # Y02114 to be used when using hardware like # 853-2040-04.
