Review of Erickson Spare Tire Carrier EM77316

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Erickson Spare Tire Trailer Tire Bracket Kit. This bracket kit holds a spare tire and wheel assembly in your truck bed, open trailer, or enclosed trailer. It's a really nice design. It's a nice compact design so it keeps the assembly upright and frees your truck or trailer up for other gear. We're looking at a durable steel construction with a bright zinc finish to resist rust and corrosion. It is a bolt on installation.

The tire must rest on the bed floor and up against the sidewall when mounted. Mounting hardware not included. It does come with detailed installation instructions to help walk you through the whole process step-by-step.I'm gonna disassemble the unit real quick and then we'll go over the measurements of the components that it comes with. Then I'll show you how it would reassemble and how it would actually work and install.Now this system is designed to work with most 14 inch and 15 inch diameter trailer and tire wheel assemblies. The bracket right here, this is the piece that gets installed onto the wall of your truck bed, your trailer wall, or utility trailer.

The bracket itself measures edge to edge going this direction about 4 3/8ths. Side to side it's about 1 3/8ths inches. The mount holes on the unit are separated on center by 3 1/2 inches. Again, mounting hardware's not included.Then this is your threaded rod. It comes through this area right here.

That provides the attachment point for the wheel on your spare tire assembly. Now the rod length, I did take a measurement of that from the bracket right here to the end of the threaded portion, and I got a measurement of 5 11/16ths of an inch long.So once you have this mounted and once you have your rod through you can place your spare tire over the unit. You want to make sure that this post goes through the center area of the wheel. Then you take your cap, which has a diameter of 5 1/4 inches, outer edge to outer edge. It goes on the other side of your wheel.

Then to secure it in place you take the large wingnut here and you thread that on. You just keep threading that until it makes contract with the cap. Then that will actually press up tight against the wheel, securing your spare tire assembly in place on the bracket.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Erickson Spare Tire Bracket Kit.
