Bike Rack For A 2012 Toyota RAV4 With A Rear Spare Tire
I have a 2012 Toyota Rav 4 with rear spare tire. The measurement from center of my trailer hitch receiver pin hole to outside of spare tire is 6inches. Will the Swagman XTC2 clear the spare with bikes attached?
asked by: Scot
The Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # S64670 will clear the spare tire with bikes attached. The distance from the center of hitch pin hole to the closest wheel hoop is 8 inches and with your tire being 6 inches that will give you 2 inches to play with.
The Swagman bike rack can carry up to 2 bikes with a weight capacity of 35 pounds per bike. The rack has padded hooks on the ratcheting arms that holds the bikes securely by the frame.
The bike rack has an anti-rattle hitch pin that reduces movement of the rack in the hitch receiver. The rack has is made out of a durable steel construction with a black powder coat that is rust resistant.
The rack can carry a bike with a maximum tire width of 2.5 inches. Fat bike hoops # S64674 (sold separately) will let you carry bikes with 5 inch tires. The Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Swagman Bike Rack # S64030 (sold separately) will help deter theft of your bikes and the rack.
