asked by: JOE
Since the 2003 Honda CR-V came with a rear mount spare tire, you will need to use a spare tire mount rack. The only 3 bike option we have is the SportRack 3 Bike Carrier Spare Tire Mount Bike Rack, # A30813STL. While it is very likely the rack will fit, to be sure I recommend taking a few measurements.
The spare tire will need to have a wheel diameter of 15 inches or less, and a center opening that is at least 2 inches in diameter. You will also need to measure to determine if the bracket that bolts behind the wheel will extend far enough out to clear the face of the tire.
The bracket mounts in between the spare tire and the vehicle, so you will need to measure from that point out to the point where the thickest part of the tire is cleared. This measurement needs to be less than 4-1/4 inches for the rack to work with your CR-V. I have included a link to a video review of this rack for you to view.
