What is the Rise on the Thule T2 Platform Style Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack


Bottom of 2inch receiver of my Draw Tight Hitch on my Sienna is 9inch from ground. How much higher will the wheel platforms on the T2 be. I am concerned about whether or not they will drag on a driveway approach. Thanks

On the Thule T2, # TH9044-Th9046, from the top of the shank that fits in the trailer hitch receiver to the bottom of the wheel cradles where the tires sit measures about 6-1/4 inches.

From the top of the shank to the underside of the nearest platform measures 4-3/4 inches. The rack, when folded down, is at a slight angle so the farthest platform will actually be about 3/4 of an inch higher.

The 4-3/4 inch rise should keep the rack from contacting the ground. However, on steep inclines and dips it is still possible it could rub against the ground.

I have included a link to the installation details and a video review of the rack for you.
