Re: Tire Carrier Specs
My tire carrier uses a receiver mount for the tire. The outer piece is slotted on both sides and the inner one is drilled and tapped for a 1/2" bolt on both sides. This allows the inner piece to be moved in and out for varying wheel offsets and tire widths. I mount the tire on the inner piece, slide it in so that the tire is in contact with the upright and tighten both bolts. No rattles whatsoever and the upright does provide some fatigue support.
