Spare Tire Mounting For 2017 Subaru Outback  


I have a 2017 Outback and now have a full size spare no more donut for me. I have the 18 wheel with Falken Wild Peak AT Trail tire as my spare. I want a storage solution as the spare will not fit in the well inside the car. Can you offer me some solutions to carrying the full size spare? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

Since you asked for options, one is you can simply store it in a rooftop cargo box on the roof rack of your 2017 Subaru Outback, with the Yakima SkyBox NX 16 Roof Cargo Box # Y95AV.

This cargo box measures 75-1/2" long x 35" wide x 16" tall, so you'll have the room to store it, and this would be a nice option if you also have other gear you like to haul.

The other option is a cargo basket and spare tire carrier for your roof rack:

- Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07070

- Spare Tire Carrier for Yakima Roof Cargo Baskets # Y07076

The carrier will mount to the cargo basket and offers security if you lock it, which you can do with the Padlock # 141T.
