Does Curt Premium Bike Rack C18065 Have Clearance for 2015 Wrangler Spare


Im interested in purchasing item number C18065 which is a five bike rack for a trailer hitch on a 2015 Jeep Wrangler. I cant tell if this thing will fit with the spare tire mounted to the back of the Jeep or if it would have to be removed. The spare tire is a factory size wheel. Can you tell me if it will fit with the tire on the back of the Jeep or if I would have to remove The tire for the bike rack to fit?


Expert Reply:

The Curt bike rack part # C18065 that you referenced has a distance of 10 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast. Which means that if you measured from the center of the hitch pin hole on your Wrangler out to the furthest point out on the rear spare and this was measurement was less than 10 inches the rack would clear the spare.

If you had the etrailer hitch # e98856 installed on your Wrangler which has a longer hitch tube you'd definitely have the clearance needed.
