Yakima Spare Tire Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Jeep Wrangler with a 33x12.5R17LT Spare


I have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler 2 door with a Mickey Thompson 33X12.5 R17LT spare ride. Center hole is 3inch and its 6 1/4inch from mount to outer edge of tire. Which 2 bike spare tire rack would work? Thanks, Tom


Expert Reply:

Yes, your tire size of 33x12.5 R17LT is close to the standard size of 305/65R17. And the Yakima SpareRide bike rack # Y02599 includes two extensions, allowing it to fit wider tires. The width range tires that this rack will work on is 195 to 318, which your tire is within this range.

This rack also requires a hole in the wheel that is larger than 1-3/16 inches, which yours has a diameter of 3 inches so it should be fine. As well as a distance of less than 6-1/2 inches from the mounting plate to the furthest point out on the spare tire, which is more than the distance of 6-1/4 inches that you said you have on your wheel.

I attached installation instructions and a review video for this product for you to check out also.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes you might also be interested in getting a Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531. I attached a review video and installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.
