Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier - Fits 4- and 5-Lug Wheels
Mount your spare tire up and out of the way with this corrosion-resistant carrier. Features steel plate construction and a security locking hole for added security. Fits both 4- and 5-lug wheels and up to 3" x 4" tongues.
Determining the Bolt Pattern
The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.
To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)
On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)
Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

Today were going to review part number FSTC1000301. This is the Fulton high mount spare tire carrier. This will fit four and five lug wheels. This will allow you to mount your spare tire up and out of the way with this corrosion resistant carrier. It is a clamp on installation. I have an example here of this part which would clamp onto the trailer frame.
Theres no drilling required. The carrier is made of a welded reinforced steel plate construction. It also has corrosion resistant zinc plating. Also right here this hole at the very top is a security locking hole. That allows you to lock your spare tire wheel tot eh bracket and the trailer.
If you go to the product page for this part number we will list related products for different cables that are sold separately that you would be able to secure your tire wheel to this carrier. Again this fits both four and five lug wheels. Itll work with the four-on-four bolt pattern and the five-on-four and a half bolt pattern with 10 inch diameter or larger wheels. It will not work with any of the five-on-four and three quarters, five-on-five or five-on five and half bolt patterns. I have this setup to fit a this carrier will fit trailer tongues up to 3 inches wide and 4 inches high and thats how I have this one setup right now.
It also comes with shorter bolts that will allow it to fit on smaller trailer frames like 2 inch by 3 inch or 2 inch by 4 inch. All the hardware is included. Up here youd have two bolts that you would sit your wheel, align the holes of the bolt pattern with these two and tighten it down to secure the spare tire to this. Once this is on the trailer frame it will rise right here about 5 inches above the trailer frame. Then the distance from the frame to the back of this holder is going to be 4 inches.
That should do it for review on part number FSTC1000301.
Average Customer Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (410 Customer Reviews)Mount your spare tire up and out of the way with this corrosion-resistant carrier. Features steel plate construction and a security locking hole for added security. Fits both 4- and 5-lug wheels and up to 3" x 4" tongues.

You guys/gals at eTrailer are a model for GREAT customer service and products. I'm an IT Professional and love the order tracking with a map ... never seen that before. The product came quickly (thanks for upgrading my shipping FOR FREE!). Nicely manufactured part and the short bolts fit nicely on the relatively short single tongue of my 5x8 Carry-On trailer (13" wheels) with enough clearance to allow swinging up the wheeled tongue jack. The height of this unit allowed for ample ground clearance (about 10") from the bottom of the spare to the ground. In the event that the trailer ball came off at speed, the tire would hit the ground before the end of the coupler, not a good situation but I think the trailer would be less likely to dig in and pitch its contents off like a trebuchet! After looking at it installed, I think I could raise it an inch or so by sliding the unit up on the tongue and using a block to takes up the space between the top of the tongue and the bolts. Very happy ... if you need a tongue mount in a cramped space like I did, I highly recommend this. There is also a hole in the section that extends out away from the trailer's tongue through which you can pass a chain/security cable and if you cinch it up tight enough will prevent removal of the wheel and/or the mount itself. Nice! 124743

This is a well constructed Fulton Hi-Mount offset spare tire carrier for my 1956 trailer. It fit perfectly on may 3" main channel with parts to spare. The shorter bolts may be useful elsewhere. There is plenty of ground clearance for my 5 hole 8" spare tire with plenty of clearance from the bumper and trailer jack. This took me about 30 minutes to install on the side yard of my garage. It may have taken me longer due to the need to locate the tools I would need for the installation but I was in no rush. With the spare tire mounted high and aft of the tongue hitch it feels very secure for highway travel. I may need to fine a way to lock the tire to the trailer to deter theft but I am happy with this unit so far. 299721
I have two little Honda CT-90's, and a couple of months ago I purchased a small utility trailer to haul them around on. I've been really concerned because there was no place for a spare tire. Problem solved. I bought your Fulton Hi-Mount spare tire rack and had it installed in about 30 minutes. The little 12" tire fits on the rack perfectly. THANKS! 162280
Seems like a great product, shipping took about a week for me. Only thing bad I have to say is the place I wanted to mount it on my boat trailer, the frame was too big and this would not adjust to that size. That's completely my fault for not measuring! But I found another spot that works just fine and from start to finish I had my spare tire mounted on the trailer in about 10 minutes! Very happy now as I've never been able to pack a spare trailer tire for the trailer! 200950

I have a Haulmark cargo trailer. The frame between the "box" and coupling is about 12 inches off the ground - when I put this bracket on and mounted the spare tire on it, it was only about 4 inches off the ground, which worried me. I really wanted to mount the tire on the frame, on the front of the "box". I was able to put this bracket on the front of the cargo box, with the backing plates "sideways" inside the box, with the mounting bolts on each side of a frame member. I put it so that if anything gave way, the frame would support the spare tire and after almost a year, the tire is still about 1/2 inch off the frame like it was the day I installed this. What I like is that the tire is up and out of the way, it's easy to dismount if I need it, and it's obviously well off the road. Well made and does what I needed it to do. My only caution is to make sure it will hold the tire up high enough if you choose to put it on the trailer frame. 315970

My bracket arrived when expected and I couldn't be happier with the service received from etrailer.com. I needed something to attach my cargo trailer's spare tire to the trailer frame and this bracket did the trick. I installed it so that the spare rests horizontally on top of the frame and not on the side. Installation was easy and the tire is secure. I now have much needed space inside my trailer. 138375

Received and mounted the tire carrier today, took all of about 8 minutes. Works great. Did not want to mount on the tongue area, I felt it would be in the way when I power load the boat and climb down to winch it forward. I mounted on the side and it does not stick out any more than the tires so it won't interfere when I back in my garage. I wish the product came with a cable lock. Boat is an 18 ft. Nitro 200805

The material is very heavy duty and installation only took 15 minutes. Works very well to free up more space in a small cargo trailer. 104520

Placed my order hoping I would get it in a couple of weeks before I left for Maine. Instead I got it in a "WEEK", how good is that for customer service! I also ordered the spare tire carrier FSTC1000301which came in the same shipment. I mounted it as you can see and it worked out great. Thanks George 286377

This was my very 1st order from etrailer and my experience has been wonderful as follows: 1- Inititial Ordering Website: Phenominal!!! 2- Available Products: Incredible Variety with clear Specifications!!! 3- Ease, Clarity & Speed of Delivery: Incredible!!! 4- Customer/Order follow-up Service: Unbelievable, Thanks Katherine H and Dawson K, you guys are what makes it all happen!!! The shown product item: "Fulton High Mount Spare Tire Carrier" along with the the "Instructions PDF" describes very well how this product is used, therefore, any pictures from my system would not be of much benefit, however, I will say that "etrailer", is deserving of very "HIGH" praise of it's People & it's Products and I "Highly recommend their Products" and most of all "Their Fantastic People & Service" being one and the same!!! Thanks, John P. Curran, Gloucester Virginia. 35422

I ordered this Fulton Spare Tire Mount to attach the 8 inch wheels as spares. I found that when I mounted the 8 inch rim on the support, the rim came in contact with the support arm and didnot allow the wheel to make a flush contact with the backing plate where the two bolts hold the wheel to the mount. I made a spacer to fit between the wheel and backing plate and used longer bolts to anchor the wheel to the support. This should be noted in the catalog that the support was not built for the 8 inch wheel. The unit would fit a larger wheel ok. Just take a new 8 inch wheel and try to fit it flush on the support. The support and the wheel were of good quality. The only problem is the arm between the two plates should be three inchs longer and the problem would be solved. Sam Johnson 45321

Perfect way to carry my spare. Fit my 2004 Bass Tracker trailer like it was mounted at the factory. Sits at just the right height and doesn't interfere with the boat or the winch. I wish I had gotten one of these long ago. 216531
Comes with all mounting hardware. very solid bracket. could weld install, or drill and tap install also. Well constructed. 133673
Great product, keeps tire up and away from the frame 57406

I finally got tired of having to lug around my spare tire in the back of my truck and ordered this spare tire carrier. It installs in less than 5 minutes and I love the fact that two sets of screws are included, short and long. This made my install even quicker because the short screws fit perfect and required less turns of my trusty ratchet. It is on my trailer very securely and is holding my spare tire ever so tightly. The built in lock is a must to thwart away any would be thieves. It is sad that we live in times where we have to lock everything down, but I am glad this feature is part of this product. Once again, excellent product, great price, super fast shipping. etrailer rocks! 73958

This trailer spare tire mount is an excellent product. It is easy to attach on the trailer and takes all of about 10 minutes. The product is very well made and sturdy. My husband and I highly recommend this spare tire mount for trailers. Thank you etrailer. Joy Berg 281029

I have two of these and they are both sturdy and durable. I installed the first about two years ago and the second a few days ago. The welding process warped the trailer frame plate slightly and this moved the bolt holes out of alignment on the second one. I could not assemble it until I re-aligned the holes by inserting a large screw driver into the hole and bending the plate. It'd didn't take much movement to make it right, but had I not done that I could not have installed it. Once this was done though everything went very well. The first one I installed has had zero durability problems. I would have rated it "excellent" but for the install hassle. 48615

I have purchased my second of this spare tire carrier with no reservations whatsoever. My trailer coupler somehow came off the ball at 65 mph. The spare tire, mounted to this carrier and bolted to the trailer tongue, took the hit full on, skidding under the 3500 lbs. of weight. The tire was, of course, ruined, and the Fulton carrier was slightly bent, but the coupler never hit the ground, the trailer never touched the rear of the truck, and the boat suffered no damage whatsoever. I have replaced the coupler, the spare tire, and another Fulton carrier just like the original one. I will never pull a boat again without this set-up. 225273
by: Tod W.09/17/2015
The spare tire carrier is a quality item and installed easily. The only problem is that I didn't read enough of the fine print or other reviews and I completely missed the part in the (deep) in the description stating it does not work with 5 on 5 bolt pattern. I only read the headline that said works with 4 and 5 hole bolt pattern's. There really should be at least a subnote in that statement. As it is there does not seem to be any of this type of carrier that will work so I am just going keep it. I mounted the rim solidly with one bolt and am using the second bolt to secure the inner hole of the rim. That will work just fine. 226155
This is the second product I have ordered from etrailer and I must say I am a satisfied customer. Products are as described (no surprises) and were shipped fast to my house. I bought the trailer hitch kit and mounted to my VW Tiguan. Everything lined up perfectly. I recently ordered the spare tire mount for my LoadRite trailer and and it fit perfectly. Great company with great products and excellent customer service 101955

I am always a little worried about ordering anything online for a business I haven't used before. Well there is no problem ordering from here. Once I placed my order (late on Saturday) I received a confirmation email. Sunday I received the shipping notice and it was at my front door midday Tuesday. The order was correct and packed well. Today many businesses forget to appreciate the customer. I never felt this way with my order which included an email to make sure my order was correct. I will not hesitate ordering again from here and telling my friends about this company. Thank you Ken 211787

This spare tire mount also arrived on time, like all my other items. I was impressed with it and it looks to be a quality made piece. My only negative comment about this item is this. It came with two sets of mounting bolts to attach it to the bumper. I have the typical 4" square RV bumper shown in the picture advertising the item. However, neither set of bolts were long enough to fit my bumper. This required me taking a trip to my local Home Depot to buy 4 longer bolts in order to mount it. No big deal really, just annoying. The mount itself however is great and works perfectly. 138502
by: Dan Waddle03/24/2015
Really easy to install (once I read the instructions!!!!) Got it installed in less than 10 Mins (even including initial blind attempt) Rebecca provided great customer service by adding this carrier after my initial purchase of a spare tire and wheel was already submitted and they arrived the next day!!! Most companies would have made it two separate purchases. 180661
This mount holds my 14" spare tire on my trailer securely. Installation was no problem and I'm very satisfied with it. etrailer's service is top notch as well! 126844
by: Mike H.06/11/2012
Spare tire carrier fit up perfect. EZ to install only five minutes to bolt on and adjust. The galvanized surfaces look good and should resist rusting for a long time. The spare wheel and tire are just what I ordered, I tired the wheel on the cart and it fit as designed. Hopefully I'll never need it but it is ready to use if that situation arises. 43675
We already had a spare tire mount on the trailer but decided to add a 2nd when re did the total rebuild. We do a lot of road trips and it almost never is completed seeing some poor soul on the side of the road with a tire that has given up. Road hazard or just one that is old and cannot bear the load and heat another mile. We hopefully try to be prepared. Changing tires or fixing some problem that has interrupted the adventure on a busy highway or narrow road is worth the value of quality you trust with parts you have chosen. 247678

I purchased this carrier along with a galvanized wheel and 6ply high speed trailer tire from e-trailer. This carrier is a heavy duty galvanized carrier with stainless steel hardware and mounting bolts (2 sets to fit any trailer configuration) and am very pleased with the quality of the equipment and the speed of delivery. If you are looking for a really nice carrier that will last the life of your trailer don't look any further. E-trailer supplies the finest equipment at the best price and backs it up with great service. 264581

Fulton Spare Tire Carrier I was looking for a spare tire carrier for my small, single axle trailer and checked around at some of the local stores. None of them stocked spare tire carriers so I got on the internet and found eTrailer. eTrailer has the biggest selection of trailer parts of any store. The prices are reasonable and the service and quality of the merchandise is great. The Fulton spare tire carrier is actually heavy duty. The photo doesn't do it justice. Installation is simple, just as the photo shoes. 4265
by: Eric H.06/18/2014
Rating excellent for installation ease. Went right on, a perfect fit. Instructions suggest using a torque wrench to ensure proper bolt tightness (20lb-ft) but you might get away doing it by hand if you're careful. They suggest 45 lb-ft for the lug nuts holding on the tire. I thought the angle of the bracket would make the tire hang too far away from the post, but with the tire on it it actually looks pretty solid. Some of the metal has sharp edges from manufacturing, so be careful. 136393
I bought the spare tire, mount and cover cheaper than I could purchase just the exact same tire somewhere else. I received the tire and it was very easy to mount to my trailer and the cover made it look very professional. Would highly recommend. 275028
Not only did etrailer.com have the best prices for my products, their customer service was excellent. They kept me updated with the status of my order, and they upgraded my shipping method without additional costs, which got me my products sooner. The products were of high quality, and I got exactly what I needed. I highly recommend doing business with this company. I intent to continue my association with etrailer.com for future purchases. 129599
The Tire Carrier and it's hardware look strong and should work very well. The lock is simple to use and will make it difficult for anyone to steal the wheel. To do so, they will have to unbolt all 4 nuts to remove the Carrier and then cut away the lock to steal the wheel. Way too much trouble for a $25 wheel and tire. Etrailer was very easy to deal with and my parts were shipped quickly. I'd definitely deal with them again. 36926

The products I ordered are of the best quality and fit my application perfectly. As happy as I am about the parts, the Customer Service is what made my experience with etrailer so enjoyable. They worked with me to find me the right parts and were courteous and professional through the whole process. Thanks etrailer, you made a new lifetime customer. I will be singing your praises to everyone! 38441
Had to add a spare tire on a trailer I purchased and this fit the bill for me. I don't think it is for an 8 inch wheel but it is on the trailer and the spare tire is mounted on it just fine. 143083

Quality looks good. But Made in Mexico is a skirt around the American people that can also make this item. Its all about the dollar. How much can we make, how fast and who can we get it from. 109248

i have not installed it yet , but i belive it to easily done . if it becomes difficult i will inform you. ps you need to install a different way to mount the unit with a secured tamper proof bolt security system . the way it is , all you have to do is carry a pair of channel lock pliers wiith you and it would only take a matter of minutes and you would have a mount and spare tire . 11883
Good quality product. I failed to research the product information enough and ordered a spare tire mount for a trailer much smaller than what I own. I have a 20' flat bed car hauler with 15: wheels. With a slight bit of modification I was able ro make it work. I would like to commend etrailer.com on great customer service! I will highly recommend you! 72678
by: Scott C09/01/2016
I am an automotive restorer and boat owner. This item is of the highest quality of any item I found on the Internet . Included are two attachment bolts of different lengths to assure the correct installation on your trailer. Also the web site has accurate measuring of the 5 and 4 bolt diagram for correct application. Buy it over all the others. 290104
by: Rocky Smith07/17/2015
PLEASE NOTE: the product is fine, but BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU ORDER. It only fits 10" diameter or larger rims. Will NOT work with 8" rims (4.80x8 tires), which are common on smaller boat trailers. I didn't notice that fact buried in the features, and to return it, I would have to pay the shipping both ways -- half the cost of the product. No way. 212395
Great product, fast shipping from etrailer, and easy to install. I am very happy with this purchase! 41868
by: Donald S.06/30/2013
The Hi-Mount Spare tire carrier is made to mount to the frame of the trailer but is too low as mounted. With my 15" wheel and tire mounted on it the bottom of the tire was within 1/2'' of the ground. I have a 5'X8' Route 66 Cargo Trailer. The mount is very well made and heavy duty if you have a trailer/tire combination that it will fit. 86767
Order arrived in a nicely packed box and all parts were in good condition. The spare tire carrier was easy to install and now my trailer will not ever have to be stranded on the side of the road because I did not have a spare tire with me (already had the spare ready to mount) Thanks...great price, quick delivery, solid product. 166814
Very sturdy tire mount and worked very well for my trailer. I would recommend this product if you are in the market for one. 275376
This carrier seemed sturdy and strong on my trailer. It took me no time to install and they even give you longer bolts in case of a thicker tongue. I had a 5 bolt wheel and it went on with no problems. It also comes with an extra hole to put in a lock cable. I bought the lock to go on the bolts for easier on/off and neater. 55566
I bought this for my 16' cargo trailer without measuring the frame. My frame is 6" and the bracket is 6" itself. So, it won't fit. Looks nice though and I will keep it for my small utility trailer. I really didn't see any spare tire brackets in Etrailer that will fit. Biggest I saw was 5". I will call after the holiday. 234196
by: SD Mike11/15/2011
I purchased this tire holder due to my trailer not having one when I bought it. The bracket is heavily built and comes with all the hardware to mount to your specific trailer. This bracket is zinc coated and appealing to the eye, although I have not mounted the tire yet it will be very easy and straight forward job. 26993
This spare wheel carrier bolted straight on to the A-frame at the front of the boat trailer. It is rugged and well made. The only problem I had was putting the thin washers on the wheel carrier bolts. I had to tap them into position and one I got on backwards. More explicit instructions would have helped. 141626
by: Craig L.12/03/2012
Needed to move the spare on our Aliner to the front so we could use the hitch receiver on the rear for a bike rack. This unit is much sturdier than what was available from the RV dealer. and was a very easy install. Good selection, price and service from etrailer...what more could you need to know? 60575
Excellent product. All hardware included and easy to install. Took about 10 or 15 minutes. Perfect for my boat trailer. Works on 4 and 5 lug wheels. The price is very good and it came quickly as well.I would highly recommend this spare mount by Fulton. Great service from E Trailer. Thanks 168555
