Video Transcript for Curt Spare Tire Carrier - Hitch Mount - C31006 Review

Today we're going to review part number C31006. This is the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier. Now, this is a universal spare tire carrier that'll fit in any wheel bolt patterns and installs into a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. Now, this carrier will fit on a front or a rear mounted hitch receiver. It's made of a nice, durable black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion. Now, the hardware, if you'll notice on here, it has two horizontal slots and one vertical slot, and that's where you would mount your wheel and tire up to here to carry your spare tire. Now, the hardware to mount your wheel on to here is not included with this part number.

It does require three bolts and nuts to attach that spare wheel to the carrier. What I would recommend, if this is going to be used on a trailer, I would recommend using half inch nuts and bolts to attach your wheel to this carrier, since most trailers use half inch nuts on their wheels. That way, since your spare will be held on with half inch and your trailer will be half inch, you'll be able to use the same lug wrench that you remove the wheels on your trailer on this carrier. Now, if you are going to use this spare tire carrier on a vehicle, you might try to get the bolts that hold the spare tire to this carrier the same size as the wheel lugs that are on the vehicle. Again, that way you can use the same lug wrench for both the vehicle and the spare tire. This does measure 24 inches tall to the very top. From the bottom to the very top is 24 inches tall. Now, the weight capacity on this spare tire carrier will be the same as the tongue weight capacity of the hitch that's installed on it.

If your hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds, this will be able to hold the 350 pounds. You just want to make sure that the weight of this spare tire carrier, and the weight of your wheel and tire, will not exceed that tongue weight capacity on the hitch. Now, I do want to give you a few measurements. If you'll notice, you'll see that the actual mounting upright does angle back a little bit. I wanted to give you, first, the dimensions from these three pinhole locations to that upright, and then I want to give you the dimension of how much it angles back. Right now, if we go from the very closest pinhole to the upright, from the upright to the center of that pinhole is five and half inches. If you go to the middle hole, from the upright to the center, is seven and a half inches.

If you go from the upright to the center of the farthest hole is nine and a half inches. Basically, those holes center to center are about two inches apart. Now again this does angle back, so if I drop a straight edge down here, right about there you can see that it's about three inches. Try to give you an idea here. It's about three inches. This very top part will be angled back, so just to give you some measurements on that. Now, what I'm going to do is, I want to move this table out of the way, and I'm just going to show you how it installs on to a hitch receiver, so let's just move this table out of the way. Okay.

Then with the table out of the way, we have a display post here. I'm just going to try to show you. There's a two inch receiver opening, so, basically, you would just take your spare tire carrier, slide it into your hitch, line your hitch hole up with the hole on the carrier. Again, there's three choices, so you can put it, this is the furthest one. You can even put it to the closest one. Use whichever works best for you. Then use the clip you already have or lock, whichever you're going to use on that. Then you can see, once you've attached this down, then you'll be ready to go. I have an example here of the wheel. Then you'll just bolt your wheel. You'll line two holes up just like that. The two bottom holes will line up with those horizontal slots, and then you'll line up your bolts and nuts with the top hole in the vertical slot. That's how it'll hold your spare tire on to your vehicle or your trailer. That should do it for the review on part number C31006, the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier. .

This carrier is EXACTLY what I needed. My tire, a 31” Path Finder on a 17” stock Silverado wheel, was WAY too heavy and big to fit underneath the bed and I was not about to try and get over a hundred pounds of tire underneath the bed and lifted up in order to mount it. I also couldn’t place it in the bed of the truck as me and my wife are packing all we belong in the 6 foot bed, so we needed all the space the bed would allow, so that was out of the question as the tire would have taken a LOT of the bed up. So I found this carrier by Curt. A local merchant had the product, but they wouldn’t answer any of my questions and their knowledge was extremely subpar on trailer accessories even though they worked in the automotive section. So I found etrailer online. The reviews on their products helped tremendously and the man in the video tutorial walked me through everything I needed to know. The Bread financing was GREAT as im only paying around $12 a month for this carrier. The carrier itself is extremely tough and a lot heavier than you’re thinking, which is what you want with a 31” tire. The 3 holes on the horizontal bar make it great for mounting as the 1st hole was too close to the bed when mounted, the 3rd was too far as I didn’t want so much coming off my truck as I like to back up a lot and need to know where my truck ends and begins, but the second was juuuuuust right. The tire sits a centimeter before the tailgate handle and all three bolts I bought at a local hardware store, all grade 8 half inch with washers and nuts, fit in the 3 slots allowing for great seizure of the tire to the carrier. I would HIGHLY recommend this product and will denfintly be buying from etrailer again. etrailer will definitely make me and my wife’s 1100 mike journey all the better. THANK YOU etrailer!!! 524006

Purchased a Curt trailer spare tire carrier for my motor home after a recommendation by the etrailer customer service reps. On the best product for my unit. Also ordered 2 safety steps for my motor home to put total in range for free shipping. All products arrived in a timely manner, however , 1 accessory pkg. for the safety step was missing. Contacted etrailer cust. Serv. And they immediately contacted the mfg. and had it shipped to me. All products now installed and all are perfect. The recommendation on the right product for my needs, and the timely completion of my order was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend etrailer products and service and will be a customer in the future as needs arise. 254445

I installed it in the Drawtite front receiver (also purchased from etrailer (and also, excellent) on my 2012 Ram 2500 w/Lance truck camper. Today, I did a 350 mile "shakedown" cruise, a mixture of mountainous terrain and interstates. I've got an 88 lb. spare wheel and tire, and aside from an occasional 'wiggle', it's all solid as a rock. Sorry, I'm still getting by with my old non-camera flip-phone, so no pic to upload. But your firm is great to do business with (and I see the return credit was applied today. Thanks 538369

I just received my C31006 Spare tire Carrier for my motor home! It's funny that most items you see on TV or on websites seem far better than they actually are. Not in this case! I was expecting little an got a lot. This carrier is made of heavy gauge steel much stronger than it appears on the website or in the video. The Tire mount itself is 3/16" plate steel, with a deep black high gloss finish. The welds are continuous not spot welded! I am very pleased with the weight and quality of this tire carrier. You will not be disappointed with this product!! 599752

I have rarely purchased anything on-line that I am as happy with as I am the Spare Tire Carrier for my 1986 Toyota 4x4, It is engineered so well and built so sturdy that I was amazed. I highly recommend etrailer, with a 5 star rating 58488

Product was good and as shown, wish you would provide at least 3 bolts and a pin to secure it, that would make the product complete. Or else its a 5 star. 553552

Great finish, Great design, perfect for the job at hand! Mounting a full sized spare on my custom teardrop was a challenge but the hitch mount is perfect. i can unhook and remove after travel and replace when leaving. only issue is hardware but a quick run to Ace and i've got all the hardened nuts an bolts i need to custom fit my wheel. wish i had found this product earlier, would have saved me some trouble. 381863

You guys are real problem solvers. I had my spare tire mounted on my lid closing the well which contains a great storage area for jacks and other tools and is lockable. However raising the lid with the spare on it became problematic for weight reasons and the spare would hit against the window and wouldn't open far enough to gain access. Wallah, the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire carrier solved all those problems inexpensively and contributed to a overall better look for the spare. Thanks to everyone involved with the production and sales of this as it sure made my live easier. 438344

The spare tire carrier was exactly what I was needing to free up access to my storage area on my jeep. The only modification I had to make was to shorten by two inches the tube that slid into my hitch because my hitch was somewhat shorter than most because of the gas tank on the jeep. This also moved the hitch in closer to the tail gate and eliminated the irritating noise from the tire carrier moving around in the tube. Your product is very well built and I will also turn to you guys to solve problems for various items that are needed from time to time.

I bought a motor home with no spare tire and no where to keep one! Found your web site and was glad to see a solution to my problem! As you will see in the pictures, I had to modify the cheap back bumper to get the carrier to fit. Very glad to have this solution and be able to carry a spare tire. Great service and speedy delivery! Thank you! 181833

I've researched all tire carriers including Road Master (bought and returned) and the Universal-type which resembles the Curt model. I had to use the 1st of the 3 holes to accommodate the spare tire, which left me with about 1/4 inch gap between the tire and the RV rear doors. See photos My salesperson (Katie D.) was excellent and the shipping of this product arrived rather quickly. 296437

This bracket solved my problem and provided me with an excellent mount for my spare tire in conjunction with the Ultra-Fab 2" Motor Home Trailer Hitch Receiver 759243

It survived the 4000 km Baja XL with a 31"tire attached. Enough said about the quality of this item. It was dragged going through dips, helped out of a few sticky situations and was generally abused mercilessly for 10 days straight along Baja's back roads and goat trails. I would highly recommend this product. My only comment is it rattles around in the receiver a bit. It didn't bother us and I believe there is an easy fix for this available from etrailer if it is a concern. ABG "Go fast, take chances" 745511

Great part. I'm going to use this to actually mount the tire carrier under the truck so I can carry a full size offroad tire where the spare used to go and not use up bed space. 730844

The product is made very well, its made to handle heavy duty loads. Im using it n my toyota 4 runner since my spare tire hoist rusted out, this hoist makes it much easier to get off and on and I was very impressed with the way it easily fir and yet very durable. I dont have to worry about crawling under my suv to untangle the hoist wire nor do I have to deal with it getting stuck on me. Three simple stainless steel nuts and bolts and my problem is easily resolved if I ever get a flat tire. thank you, greatly appreciated. 730217

The Curt Spare tire carrier is a great product and works very well. I will be using this to hold the spare for my 1999 Ford F250 Super Duty in the Front Hitch. Again the product is of great quality and I like it.. If there is a con to this purchase it would be this: All other site that sell this product include the BOLTS, RETAINING WASHERS, WASHERS, & NUTS to hold the tire on?? Why etrailer does not is beyond me but be prepared to got find the hardware on your own... 729628

The quality is very good just it fits really sloppy in my receiver and somehow will have to come up with shims to make a tighter fit. 728519

Great product but I would recommend supplying shims with it. The spare tire holder rocks left to right in the hitch receiver causing people behind me to think it will come loose and panic 669727

The product seems to be built for a narrow trailer tire. Product is well built and I was able to make it work for a full sized RV tire by making a spacer to allow the deeper tire to fit. 647455
