Available Folding Utility Steps for Vehicles and Campsites


I have 18inch rims on 2018 Denali3500 single rear wheel. Will this step clear the width of the rim so the rim will not be scratched and the step parts rest on the face of the tire?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Wheel Mount Tire Step item # HE4040 will fit your tire/wheel but I do understand your concern about it resting against your 18-inch rims.

If you'd rather use a utility step that does not contact the tire I suggest the Telesteps # TE97FR which is a free-standing fully-assembled folding aluminum step. You can see this in the linked video.

The Telesteps step comes ready to use and requires no adjustment, and it weighs only about a pound! Just pop it open when you need to access roof-mounted items. The step unfolds to instantly give you almost a foot of extra reach. You also have the ability to use this item at other locations around the vehicle and campsite since it is not limited to use near a rear tire.

Since the Telesteps step also costs a lot less you can get two of these for about the same price as one Topline tire step. I actually own this item and it is as handy around the kitchen and garage as it is when accessing the tops of our vehicles.

All such steps are shown on the linked page.
