Spare Tire Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 35 inch Tall Tire


I think I know the answer to this one but just want to be sure before buy another rack..... the Thule Spare Me 2 rack wont fit a 35inch tire because the tire its too height to let the arms open there something I can do or buy to make it work? or Im doom to buy a different rack?

I have a spare tire mounted bike rack recommendation that will work on the 35 inch tall spare of your vehicle, but the Thule Spare Me part # TH963PRO won't work on tires taller than 32 inches.

You should check out the Yakima SpareTime 2 Bike Rack part # Y02599. This rack can go on tire up to a 315 series width or 12.5 inch width. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Yakima Tube Top Adapter Bar # Y02531 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
