Trailer Hitch for 2016 Acura MDX with 19 Inch Spare Tire


Can you please tell me the exact hitch for 2016 Acura MDX SH AWD with 19 Inches tire size as I can see some are saying they are for tire size 18 inch or smaller only. Thanks


Expert Reply:

None of the hitches we offer for the 2016 Acura MDX will accommodate a spare tire larger than 18 inches. This leaves you with a couple of solutions. If you absolutely need to have the hitch, you can contact your Acura dealer about getting a compact spare (which is what I'd do in your situation).

If you only need the hitch for carrying a bike rack, you could use a hatch mounted bike rack instead. Hollywood Racks offers the Over-The-Top 3-bike rack as part # HRF2-3 which would allow you to carry 3 bikes weighing up to 35 lbs each. This rack is unique in that it won't bear any weight upon the spoiler atop the rear hatch, so it won't get damaged.

The Curt # C13146 would be a great option. If you'll be using the hitch for towing, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness like # 118628, a ball mount like # 2753 and for a 1-7/8 trailer ball use # 19260 or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball.

I've linked install instructions for the hitch and the wiring harness, as well as a product demonstration video for the bike rack I recommended.
