If you are okay with not using the back up camera while carrying bikes I recommend going with the Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount, part # HRSR1, which you reference. You will have to remove the plastic cover from the spare tire for it to fit.

Since you plan on carrying a womens bikes, I recommend picking up the Bike Frame Adapter Bar, # HRBA-PRO. Bikes with small or angled frames can be difficult to load on a bike rack and cause ground clearance issues. This adapter will allow you to load your bikes easily and safely.

I have linked to a video review of the spare tire rack for you to check out.

If you want to use the back up camera while carrying bikes you will need to go with a roof rack system and a roof mounted bike rack.

If you are interested in this option I will be glad to make a recommendation, however I will need to know whether your vehicle has a naked roof or factory side raised rails that run front to back.

I have included a link to our roof racks available for your Toyota FJ Cruiser at right.
