Video Transcript for Swagman XTC Series Bike Carriers Wheel Hoops Replacement Review

Hey, everyone. It's Evangeline. And today, we're taking a look at our replacement wheel hoops for your Swagman XTC bike rack right here at It happens, wear and tear. Maybe you broke off part of your wheel hoop or slid it out too far and lost it, and you need a replacement part for your Swagman XTC bike rack. Or I don't know if you knew this but you can actually use these wheel hoops to upgrade your Swagman XC2.

That way, you can have the included strap for extra traction. Whatever the reason is, we have those replacement parts here at So, if you're gonna be replacing your old wheel hoops, the first thing you need to do is take a small Phillips head screwdriver and take out this screw. That way, you'll be able to slide your wheel cradles off. You're actually gonna get two of these replacement wheel hoops.

So, if you need to replace your entire system, plan accordingly. If you just need another one for one bike, this is what it's for. So go ahead, take off that old one, and slide this new one in. We're only upgrading one side of our Swagman XC2 here. So, you can actually see the difference between the two different hoops.

Set them to the wheelbase you need your bikes to be and then tighten down those knobs. Don't forget to put that screw right back in before you hit the road. And that was it. It's super easy to replace the wheel tray of your Swagman XTC bike racks or even upgrade your XC2 bike racks to have that extra strap and taller wheel hoop. Just make sure that your shank for your wheel tray is about an inch and an eighth of an inch square, and then you know it will fit.

And remember, if you need those other replacement parts, you can find those here at etrailer. But this right here was a look at the replacement wheel hoop with strap for your Swagman XTC bike racks or the upgrade hoop for your Swagman XC2 series bike rack here at

Replacement Wheel Hoops for Swagman XTC Series Bike Carriers - P318

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (115 Customer Reviews)

Replace a set of damaged wheel hoops on your Swagman XTC Series bike carrier. Knobs, bolts and shims are included for mounting hoops to bike rack.


This is exactly what I needed. I have a mountain bike with dual suspension. I also have the swagman xc2 with original wheel hoops. My mtb didn't sit well in the original hoops so I bought these ones which are a PERFECT FIT. Now I can confidently put a road bike and mtb on my bike rack



Still working great after a year.

@William Glad to hear that your # P318 replacement wheel hoops are working well for you!


Thanks for what you sent! It is the perfect replacement for the lost wheel hoop on my Swagman bike rack!



It is a sturdy product that has been holding up well for the last year. I keep my rack in the garage until I need it, then it goes on the back of my car, van, or RV when needed. The new hoops seem stronger than the original equipment and have a new angle that keeps the bike slightly higher off the road a good thing when pulling into a driveway.

@John Great to hear that, we're glad to hear you're happy with your Swagman bike rack!


Doesn't fit the bar and moves with road vibration but it's not the original equipment. I solved that problem by strapping on some zip ties. Works fine!


We are very satisfied users of the Swagman XTC bike rack and customers of etrailer. The rack and replacement parts are excellent products, and the reasonable price and speedy delivery are great!


Fit great. Just what I needed! Lost one of my hoops. These fit perfect. Quick shipping!


Changed the wheel hoops on my Swagman XC2 bike rack to extend the largest wheel base from 52" to 64" just by changing the hoops! Great way to make my rack work for me rather than buying another one when this one was still in mint condition. And eTrailer service has been outstanding. I'm glad they stock parts for Swagman racks!

Still our go-to bike rack, going strong on our trailer trips


Product was as described. This was a replacement part for our existing bike rack, and fit the rack. The part was shipped the same day it was ordered and arrived as scheduled two days later. Two status emails were sent.
Service was excellent and I would definitely order from eTrailer again. No complaints.

Tom H.


Youre welcome. I still like the product, it works as intended.I would buy from eTrailer again.


Already owned bike rack but, in backing up auto, damaged an important part. Contacted via the web, found the part I needed to replace, ordered it, and three days later it arrived. Quick service and quality product. Prefect!

Bike rack works well. Troubled that rust has developed around the holes in the rack and the metal pegs that go thru them to hold the rack in place to hold the bikes.

Etrailer Expert

If the bike rack is exposed to moisture, salt water or salt on the roads rust can form. It is a good idea to remove the pins every once and a while and spray the bike rack down with fresh water. It is also a good idea to remove the bike rack from the hitch when not in use.


I've owned a Swagman XTC 2-Bicycle Rack since 2013 and have used it for many local and long-distance hauls. It was easy to assemble and to use, and it has been reliable. Although I have not given this piece of equipment the TLC that it deserves, it has held up well. When, due to a stupid error in dismantling one of the cradles, I had to order a replacement, I was able to purchase it at a very reasonable price and had it shipped to me very quickly. I still think this bicycle carrier was a great investment -- especially for the price -- and would recommend it confidently to anyone interested in a light-weight easy-to-use carrier.


I ordered these to replace the oval loops of the Swagman XC2, after having my $2500 mountain bike shoot off the rack as I went around the corner. The front suspension on the bike gave just enough for the tire to start coming out of the oval, and with the top bar of the bike on an angle, it became loose and shot off the rack. After that I started adding a nylon strap from the handlebar stem of the bike back to the center upright of the bike rack and adding a strap around the front tire and oval loop of the XC2.


After a backing-up accident, I damaged not only my bike, but also the right bar and wheel support on my bike rack. I assumed that I would have to buy another rack, but found that I could purchase the two damaged parts from etrailer.

The rack is as good as new, and I use it quite often.

Thanks, etrailer!


I Would never buy this again. It has rusted and the button to release the bikes gets stuck often so I carry a tool that helps to put pressure on it to open it. I mtn. bike a lot so keep the rack on my car. Wish I had spent the extra money and bought a heavy and sturdy rack like a Kuat or a One Up. However, if you ride infrequently and will be taking the rack off every time you use it, you may have better luck. You get what you pay for price, cheap product.


Had to replace this bar following a slight accident backing up the vehicle on which the full bike rack is installed. The rack held up very well, all things considered. Just had to replace two pieces, which was the more economical choice vs buying a whole new rack. Have absolutely NO COMPLAINTS. Shipping expedient, customer service on the ball with excellent follow up without being prodded. The item is exactly as explained and was very easy to install-- only took a few minutes to get the bike rack back to new condition. I will copy this exact review for part #SP478 that also needed replacement related to this repair. Don't hesitate to buy from or deal with this company!


The hoops have been a perfect ad on to my Swagman Bike Rack they are long enough for my Easy Racer recumbent and my tandem.



Do u have the xc2 or xtc?i have the xc2 bike rack and thinking to buy just the xtc wheel hoop for a longer wheelbase for my tandem bike.what is your tandem wheelbase?just for preferences.thank you


I absolutely love my bike rack for so many reasons including putting our sandy beach chairs on it, attaching our baby jogger etc. Someone backed up into my car the other day and bent one of the arm hoops. They of course did not leave their name but at least they also did not hit my car. Easy, cheap fix to purchase new wheel hoops! They do come in pairs and I only needed one, but hey if it happened to me once, it will happen again. And who knows maybe the extra hoop will fit on the rack and make itself useful.
Thank you e-trailer for making this a simple fix!


Thanks for the quick help getting my bike rack back together.

Got hit in a parking lot in Huntsville Al.
Didnt know until daylight that I had a problem.

We were on our way to Cape San Blas Fl for a month,

Found a Guy in Appalachacola Fl about 30 miles east.

Damage was front wheel was gone. Called Bike Line in Carmel, In and they ordered a new front wheel and some small parts. Shipped to Appala------

Talked to James and ordered wheel hoops and a bar that the hoops fit on.

Bike and Bike Rack are ready for pick up today.

Great service from everyone.


I bought these to replace the default tire hoops on my recently purchased swagman xc-2 bike rack. I own a 29" wheeled bike and the default tire hoops while good, didn't leave me feeling confident enough for my type of bike, when taking corners in my car. I purchased these and literally received them 10 minutes ago. I took off the default tire hoops and installed these. Very easy to install, like they were meant for this rack. The tire hoops do not accomadate the wider tire size as the default tire hoops that came with this bike rack. I have a 29"x2.6" Maxxis Rekon for front tire and it fits snuggly, but not difficult to get in and out of this tire hoop, be mindful of this before ordering these or get the tire hoops meant for "fat bike" tires. I love the straps that secure the wheels of the bike. I now have 3 securing points of contact vs. 1.


The bike rack part I ordered showed up as they said it would and the telephone support was great. What I liked most about it is that the newer version is actually better made than the original was so I suspect it should last much longer. I will likely order another for the other side of the rack.


This is a great bike rack, easy to use and well constructed. We had to buy a replacement set of the wheel hoops because someone apparently decided we didn't need one! We have now placed bolts thru each end of the bars so the wheel hoops can't readily slide off. That's the only recommendation I would make to the manufacturer.


This is a very good product, quickly delivered in great condition, and at a very good price! We've been using this product on our car for a year now and it still works and looks like new (and we don't keep or car in a garage)!

Our Swagman bike ak replacement parts are doing great after 1.5 t=years of frequent use. No rust, no significant wear and tear, no bending. The rubber is still in great shape.


This was a replacement part for our swagman bike rack that got crushed by our truck. The customer service was excellent!! I spoke with customer service and they worked with me to make sure it was shipped so that I had it before I left for vacation and in the cheapest way possible.
The Swagman XTC2 bike rack is awesome too, which I also purchased through etrailer.


Had to order replacement wheel hoops for my swagman xtc 4 bike rack. They were exactly the same as the original parts. Installed them and the bike rack looks like new. was very easy to order from. Received the parts in 2 days along with free shipping. I will order from etrailer again if I need to.


They work. Price is fair. Service is gr eat


I needed a replacement wheel hoops for my bike rack. Access to the information I needed to order was great, the ordering process was very easy, and the fulfillment of the order was swift (it arrived one day ahead of the scheduled delivery date). Yay!


The wheel hoop was bent in an accident. I only really needed to replace one, but the price was good enough to make buying the set painless. Excellent service, easy to order and received promptly. Price was right and product was as described. Tracking information was easy to use and very accurate. I will be purchasing more from Etrailer.

  • Inside Dimension of Swagman # P318 Replacement Wheel Hoops for XTC2 Bike Rack
    The # P318 replacement wheel hoop width accommodates a tire that is up to 2-1/2 inches thick, almost identical to the 2-9/16 inch figure you mentioned. In order to comfortably accommodate a 2-1/2 inch wide tire, the inside distance between the bars would need to be a 16th or two larger than 2-1/2 inches. The hoops are designed to mount on cross members that are about 1-1/8 inches square. I've linked you to a product description video featuring the wheel hoop.

  • Could Swagman Wheel Hoop Fit TransIt Flatbed 2DLX 2-Bike Hitch Rack
    If the bar that the wheel hoop slides on measures 1-3/16 inch square the Replacement Wheel Hoop # P318 would fit it, but aside from that we say for certain as we do not carry the brand TransIt.

  • Swagman Wheel Hoop Recommendation for Fat Bike Tires up to 3-1/2 inches in Width
    What you can do is switch the wheel cradles of your Swagman bike rack for the wheel cradles of the XC and you would have cradles that can handle tire widths of up to 3-1/2 inches. For that you would want the Replacement Wheel Hoop # P189 sold individually.

  • Replacement Wheel Hoop for a Swagman XC2 Platform Bike Rack
    The Replacement hoops, part # P318 you mentioned are only designed for the XTC series of bike racks. Instead, you'll want part # P189 for the XC series of racks, which are shaped just a little differently. This hoop will work in any of the 4 positions.

  • Replacement Wheel Hoops for Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # S64663
    We do offer replacement wheel hoops for the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # S64663 that you referenced.

  • Are Swagman Wheel Holders Interchangeable Between the XTC and XC
    I spoke with my contact at Swagman about using the # P189 in place of the # P318. He said there would be no problem with the # P189 fitting on the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack. The support bar is the same size on both of these racks. I think the reason your wheel holders may not be holding up is because your recumbent bike is heavier than the weight capacity of your bike rack. Another option you could try is the Hollywood Racks Replacement Wheel Holder for the left side # HRSPRWHL and right...

  • How do the Replacement Rubber Straps for the Swagman XTC Bike Rack Install
    If you check out the picture of the wheel hoops part # P318 that I attached you will see how the straps # P308 attach to them. You can also go to the product page for the # P318 to see the picture. Basically you just stretch the rubber holes over the attachment points of the hoops. Fast forward to the 1:05 mark of the video I attached to see how they secure a wheel to the rack.

    Sounds like you are trying to determine if a wheel hoop from a Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part S64670 would fit on a Hollywood Rack like part # HR1000Z. I have tested this before and found that the two different racks use different diameter support beams so they aren't interchangeable. For replacement wheel hoops for the Swagman you would want the part # P318. For Hollywood Racks you would want the part # HRSPRWHL.

    According to Swagman, the wheel hoops from your Swagman XTC # S64670 could be used on a Swagman XC # S64650. I will say that the hoops on the XTC are much more sturdy, and I'd recommend staying with those if at all possible.

    I do have a solution to carry your tandem bicycle, but using the Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, part # S80501, to do so is not recommended. I contacted our representative at Swagman and she informed me that it is not recommended to carry a tandem bicycle on the Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, part # S80500.

There is a version of this rack that has this set up already, # S64650-EXT, which you mentioned, but it is not a towing bike rack. With the XTC wheel hoops mounted the maximum wheel base accepted is 68 inches.
