Thule Step Up Wheel Step - Tire Mount - TH232

Average Customer Rating:  4.2 out of 5 stars   (6 Customer Reviews)

- TH232

Purchased for our 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and after multiple uses we have no regrets. The price was good; the Thule Cargo box is surprisingly light, I was able to lift it over my head onto our Jeep fairly easy. The box does only open on one side and given the height of our Jeep, that was an issue when we mounted the box center line on the Jeep. We've since started mounting the cargo box on the right side, so using a step I can easily reach any cargo inside. The two straps for securing cargo are useless and we ditched them for Bihlwerflex bungee straps. Much easier to install and use. The clamps that secure the cargo box to the rails are great, makes the mount/secure process a breeze. I do a walk around and check everything whenever we stop and the clamps have always been secure.

- TH232

I regret this purchase. Probably a good idea but poorly engineered and while I've only used it twice, I did not feel comfortable standing on it either time. Right now it's under the workbench in the garage and won't be used again. We purchased an Original Moki Door Step and couldn't be happier.

- TH232

These Thule tire steps are terrific. I got two to aid loading the rooftop Thule cargo box. As with each Thule piece of equipment I have bought, I am completely pleased with the design and quality of this product.

- TH232

Very simple to set up and use. Easy to store. Highly recommended!

- TH232

This is a great step. Would give 5stars if they had a couple screw in knobs to level up. This step is a little less sturdy than the power step, but it packs smaller and fits most vehicles. Had to return power step as it would not fit on Subaru only truck. I have a bike rack on a truck topper and it works great!

- TH232

Exactly what we were looking for. The product is sturdy and easy to assemble. Perfiect for our new 2020 Tacoma.

  • Will Thule Sonic XXL Cargo Box Fit 2006 Nissan Pathfinder LE with Factory Roof Rack
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and he said the discontinued Thule Sonic XXL Cargo Box is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder LE with factory roof rack. However you will want to check the weight capacity of your Pathfinder's roof as well as the roof rack. In addition to the cargo box, I recommend picking up the Thule Step Up Wheel Step, # TH232. This will make loading and unloading your cargo carrier much easier. For install details and some product demonstration videos,...

  • Easier Way to Access Fifth Wheel Hitch on Flatbed Truck
    There is no extension for a fifth wheel hitch handle to let you access it from a distance. The best solution for you would be to use something like the Thule Step Up Wheel Step # TH232, assuming your flatbed does not jut out over the tires too significantly. Otherwise a simple step stool such as # PA-202 is your best option.

    Yes, the Thule Pulse Large Rooftop Cargo Box # TH615 will absolutely fit the AeroBlade Edge crossbars on your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and be the perfect way for you to securely carry your cargo. I did check with Thule to confirm this fit for you. The Pulse does come with everything you need to mount it to your crossbars and uses a clamping system like in the photo I added to tightly grip your crossbars.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2018 Toyota 4Runner with Factory Crossbars
    The factory crossbars of your 2018 Toyota 4Runner sit very close to the roof of your vehicle so not every kayak carrier we offer will fit. The real bummer is that all of the assisted carriers we offer are not a fit due to the tight clearance. Best option we have would be the Thule Hull-a-Port part # TH848 which is a confirmed fit (I checked with Thule) and is one of the easier to load carriers. You might also be interested in a tire step like the Thule Step Up part # TH232 to help reach...

  • Will the Thule Motion Cargo Box Fit the Factory Roof Rack on a 2011 Buick Enclave
    Yes, the Thule Motion cargo box, # TH629706, is a fit for the factory crossbars on your 2011 Buick Enclave. I have included a link to a video review of this box being installed on a similar vehicle with a similar roof rack for you. I also recommend using a tire step, # TH232, which will make accessing the box easier. Be sure to check the Enclave owner's manual and/or with Buick for the roof/roof rack weight capacity prior to loading.

  • Car Top Carrier for a 2018 Subaru Outback and a 2013 Subaru Outback
    Both your 2018 and 2013 Subaru Outback have fairly standard crossbars, so your pick will be more about fitting to both vehicles and being able operate their rear hatch without hitting the box. To get this clearance, you'll measure from the center of the front bar to the line where your rear hatch meets the roof on both vehicles. To ensure a compatible fit, you'll want to pick boxes that have a required clearance of less than the shortest of the two measurements you took. This required...

    There is a way to add a Rhino Rack Platform to your 2018 Ford Expedition but there is not one that attaches directly to your vehicle. If your Expedition has factory installed rails that run front to back you can add a roof rack, the Rhino-Rack Vortex StealthBar # JB0190. From there you can add the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform # RR42115BF which is a universal mount that will attach to your Expedition's roof rack.

  • Wheel Step That Works With 2017 Ram 3500
    The Powerbuilt Adjustable Tire Step # ALL647596 may be an option as it is a universal mount which is going to fit any tire that is 13" wide or less. It is 21-1/2" long and has a weight capacity of 300 lbs. I also recommend taking a look at the Thule Step-Up Wheel Step # TH232 which is a universal mount that uses a strap so it is going to fit on most tires. I've added links to video reviews of both steps for you to take a look at.

  • Lightweight Portable Step for Use with Thule Force Rooftop Cargo Box on Tall SUV
    You are correct that the size and weight of heavy-duty steps like # S-150 and # SASXLA-09C-G make them less than ideal for transport inside a rooftop cargo box like the Thule Force XT # TH6356B. Odds are if you are using a roof box you do not have space in the vehicle to store one of these steps. Handy as they are their best application is as an entry step for folks towing a large trailer such as a 5th wheel that has substantial cargo storage space built-in. But anyone using a rooftop...

  • Will the Thule Outbound Roof Mounted Cargo Bag Fit a 2011 Subaru Outback with Factory Roof Rack
    Yes, the Thule Roof Mounted Cargo Bag, item # TH868, will work nicely on your 2011 Subaru Outback with factory roof rack. You should check your owners manual for the capacity of your roof rack and stay within that limitation. Another recommendation is to clean the roof and the bottom of the bag before installation. This will reduce the possibility of damage to the vehicle roof when carrying the bag. You may also be interested in the Thule Step Up Wheel Step, item # TH232, to make...

  • Cargo Box Recommendation for a 79 inch Long Ladder
    It would be a tight fit, but the smallest box you could get that would fit your ladder would be the Thule Force XL Rooftop Cargo Box # TH6358B. The internal dimensions of this box are 80" long x 32-1/2" wide x 15" tall. Only thing is it doesn't have a rear opening. It opens from the side. All of the boxes we carry now only open from the side. To make loading and unloading easier you might also be interested in the Thule Tire Step # TH232.

  • How Long is the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 Inside
    I went out to the warehouse and measured the inside of a SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box, item # SR7018, and the longest inside measurement is 60 inches. Your 63 inch skis would fit in the box if you laid them in diagonally but not straight front to back. You may be better off with a longer box. If so, the SportRack Horizon Cargo Box, item # SR7011, has a much longer inside dimension of 82-1/2 inches. Plenty of length for your skis, but not quite an equivelent amount of storage space as...

However, my contact at Sportrack could not confirm whether this box will clear your roof-mounted antenna. It is possible that this will need to be removed when the box is mounted. To make certain, I pulled a sample from our warehouse and took measurements of the rear mounting...

The Thule Force XT # TH6359B is one of our most popular roof cargo boxes that we have to offer. It is a 22 cu ft box with about 84" of internal length and a weight capacity of 165 lbs (be sure to check the weight capacity of your OEM bars too). This box is compatible with a crossbar...

  • Bike Rack Options To Carry 4 Bicycles On My 2005 Volvo XC90
    The most amount of bikes you can carry with a trunk mounted bike rack on your 2005 Volvo XC90 is 3, as this is as much as your vehicle can handle safely. You would have to carry the other bike on the roof of your vehicle if you choose to use a trunk mounted bike rack. The item you selected, Thule Passage 3 Bike Carrier, part # TH911XT, is compatible with your vehicle and would be a good option as it features anti-sway cradles.

  • Will Yakima SkyBox 16 Allow The Hatch To Fully Open On 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
    You can take a quick measurement to make sure the Yakima SkyBox 16, part # Y07335 will work with your Subaru hatch opening. If your front crossbar can be moved, move it forward as far as it can go. Then measure from the center of the front crossbar rearward to the seam that separates the roof and the hatch. For the hatch to be able to open all the way with the SkyBox 16, that distance has to be at least 52-inches. The SkyBox 16 is a really nice cargo box that can be opened from either...

To carry up to 4 kayaks, I recommend the Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830. This comes with straps for 2 kayaks, but you will want additional tie-downs for 4 kayaks.

The clearance between your tire and wheel well will need to be checked to see if the HitchMate will fit. The tubes on the step measures 22 inches wide. The tubes will have to fit around your tire and clear the wheel of your car for the step to be used on your Subaru. You will need to measure the width...

  • Options for Assisted Kayak Loading
    To answer your first question in regards to the Viking Solutions Rack Jack Magnum Hoist with Winch, # 310-VMH001, and "...pulling the supported load ... rather than vertically...". While an 85 lb. load may be successful, it has not been tested for that and is not the intended use. This is designed to support a vertical weight and pulling of the load over the vehicle does not allow the legs to provide support as intended.

Depending on the configuration of your roof, there are several options, and I have provided links for your reference.

  • Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox with Factory Roof Rack
    Yes, either of the Boxes you have mentioned will fit on the factory Cross bars on your 2011 Chevrolet Equinox, with not additional hardware required. I would recommend going with the Thule Pulse Large Roof Box, # TH614, because the claw style mounting hardware makes installation and removal of the box much easier. For your Equinox you may want to consider the Thule Step Up Wheel Step, # TH232, to make installation, removal and loading of the cargo box much easier.

The crossbar spread from center to center needs to be between 23-5/8 inch center to center and 37-1/2 inches. The clearance of your rear antenna depends on your roof rack itself. The Thule Force XXL will sit about flush with your factory crossbars so if your crossbars are higher than your antenna, you won't have an issue....
