I received this item today and mounted it on my truck. This comes with 3 bolts to mount the wheel to the mounting bracket. Only one of the nuts was machined properly. I had to go to Lowe’s and buy 2 new nuts in order to mount the wheel. 725126

by:

As usual the product arrived promptly and in good condition. Due to my large wheels and tires I needed to build a spacer to go between the wheel and the mount but overall it is great, solid and will provide adequate storage for a second spare, especially since the camper would have to be removed to access the factory mounted spare. I recommend a good hitch tightener (available from etrailer) to prevent movement but that is a factor of the system, not the product. 375443

I did NOT use this product as was intended, I have used it for the last year as a spare tire mount on the front of my work van, it has been on there and driven every day through any weather and has held up very well, it still looks and performs the same as it did when new. 308363

Holds my large and heavy spare with no problem. Highly recommend the J-pin stabilization pin to get rid of any wobble. 821993

by:

Product is almost perfect for my application. However, the supplied bolts are about 1/2 inch to short and they are not a size your local hardware store carries. They are 7/16 inch. I can get only 3/8 or 1/2 bolts locally. 814539

Very nice spare tire mount. I bought this one to go on the back of my Aliner RV. It fits snugly up to the back without hitting anything and doesn't protrude out too far. Very sturdy construction. Hardware included to mount the spare tire. I purchased a 5/8" x 3" bolt, flat washer and nuts to permanently attach the mount to the hitch. The job turned out very nice; it looks like it was professionally done. 696766

This tire carrier really worked well for my application. 27x8.5x14 all terrain tire fit easily. Currently it is mounted on the rear receiver with no issues. Would recommend getting the anti-rattle hitch pin kit also. 612805

I haven't yet installed the product but I did want to comment on the service--Outstanding! My order was processed promptly and shipped quickly. I received an email notifying me of the shipment and tracking information and a follow up after delivery to make sure all was well. Frankly, I was surprised. It seems as we move more and more towards e-commerce, the service-after-the-sale has been diminishing. Kudos to etrailer.com and George J. for demonstrating that some companies are still customer service focused. Great job and thanks much! I will be a return customer. 471378

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Spare Tire Carrier

  • Recommended Spare Tire Hitch Mount And Locks For 2000 Ford F-550
    The Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Universal Spare Tire Carrier # 6715 will for on your truck as long as it is within the 100 lb weight capacity limit. Another option for your 2000 Ford F-550 is the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # C31006 which doesn't have a capacity rated limit. I recommend using a hitch receiver lock like # e98880 to secure your mount and a spare tire lock like # e98892 to secure your spare and deter theft.

  • Distance from Shank to Mounting Plate Center on Draw-Tite Universal Spare Tire Carrier 6715
    On the Draw-Tite Universal Spare Tire Carrier # 6715 the distance from the top of the horizontal shank (which fits into your 2-inch hitch receiver opening) up to the center of the spare tire mounting plate is 17-1/2-inches, according to my contact at Draw-Tite. This dimension is shown in the linked photo that I prepared for you.

  • Why Does Front Mount Spare Tire Carrier # 6715 Have Lower Weight Capacity than Trailer Hitch
    The Front Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # 6715 that you referenced is designed to mount to a front hitch like the Draw-Tite # 65028 that you also mentioned, so both components are going to have their own weight capacity. It's important to keep in mind that with any type of setup, you will always be limited by your weakest component. So since the Spare Tire Carrier itself can only handle up to 100 pounds, you will need to adhere to this limit when mounting the tire (even though the trailer...

  • Available Types of RV Spare Tire Carriers for Use on Thor 24.1 Class A Motor Coach
    The 9 x 4-inch bumper on your 25-foot Thor 24.1 Class A motor coach is pretty large as RV bumpers go. The bolt-on spare tire carriers we have fit bumpers/trailer frames up to 5-inches. You can use a hitch-mount tire carrier like # RM-195225 from Roadmaster. This works with all wheel bolt patterns, on 16-inch to 24-1/2-inch wheels and it includes a 2-inch receiver opening to allow you to retain use of the rear hitch for flat towing a vehicle or for using a hitch-mount accessory. We also...

  • Does Draw-Tite Universal Trailer Hitch Spare Tire Carrier Hold the Spare Tire at an Angle
    When a tire is attached to the universal spare tire carrier, # 6715, the tire will be at a slight angle; maybe 10 degrees off from a straight up and down 90 degrees. The top of the tire will be slightly closer to the vehicle than the bottom like in the picture I have included.

  • Spare Tire Carrier for 8 Lug Wheel on Ford E450

  • Compatibility of Spare Tire Carrier on Rear Hitch Receiver
    The Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Universal Spare Tire Carrier # 6715 can absolutely be used on the rear trailer hitch receiver of your vehicle. You can see this on the back of a camper in our customer photos on the product page. The manufacturer named it but it absolutely can be used for a rear hitch receiver. You may in certain states need to relocate your license plate so that is likely why they listed it as a front mount. The other issue is the cargo access, so you may also consider...

  • Are Spare Tire Bike Racks Okay to use with Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier
    To answer your first question, spare-tire bike racks, including the Yakima SpareRide 2 Bike Rack # Y02599, Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack # TH963PRO and Hollywood Racks SR2 2-Bike Carrier # HRSR2 are designed specifically for use on vehicles with a spare tire mounting plate that attaches to a vehicle door, and as such they are likely not going to be compatible with the Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Universal Spare Tire Carrier # 6715 and I do not recommend using them on a hitch-mounted carrier....

    The only spare tire carrier we have for that size wheel is the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier w/ 2" Receiver Opening - 2" Hitches # RM-195225. This will fit wheels from 16-24-1/2 inches and is compatible with all wheel bolt hole patterns. This carrier has a really nice tilt function that allows you to get the tire on and off the carrier easily and also will allow you access behind the carrier without removing it from the hitch.

  • Can Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195225 be Used with Tow Dolly
    It sounds like you are referring to the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195225 that features a 2 inch receiver opening for flat towing. I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster and he did state that you can indeed use the 2 inch receiver to pull a tow dolly as long as you remain under carrier's 400 pound tongue weight capacity. Also keep in mind that using this spare tire carrier will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 33 percent. So you will not only...

  • Spare Tire Carrier for a 2016 Rpod Trailer
    All of the trailer hitch spare tire carriers that we offer fit 2 inch trailer hitches but none for a 1-1/4 inch. Usually on trailers the spare tire is carried on the frame. I have included a link to the frame mount spare tire carriers that we offer. The most popular is # FSTC1000301 for 4- and 5-lug wheels and up to 3 x 4 inch frames.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch Spare Tire carrier part # 6715 Include Hardware for Mounting Wheel to Carrier
    The Draw Tite Hitch Spare Tire carrier part # 6715 does include hardware for securing the wheel to the mounting surface. If you check out the review video I attached you can see the nuts and bolts laid out on the table. You may also want the locking hitch pin part # 63232 which also is an anti-rattle device that will take out all of the movement between the hitch and the rack. I attached a review video for this as well.

  • Will the Front Mount Trailer Hitch Tire Carrier 6715 Work with a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Wheel
    There are actually several different bolt patterns for a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van. If you have the larger 6 on 205 mm bolt pattern which can be found on the 3500 models then the Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Universal Spare Tire Carrier part # 6715 cannot be used because the slots will not span the distance between the lug nut holes it needs to attach to on your wheel.

    The Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Universal Spare Tire Carrier # 6715 will only work on your 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan if you have a custom front mounted hitch. There is not a custom front mounted hitch available for your vehicle from any of our manufacturers. Another option is to use a cargo bag like the Yakima DryTop Rooftop Cargo Bag - Water Resistant - 16 cu ft # Y07404. This will allow you to safely carry the spare tire on your naked roof.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier That is Not Angled Upwards
    I have an option with less of an angle but there is not an option that is perfectly vertical besides the Roadmaster Spare Tire carrier part # RM-195125 like you mentioned. However, the Draw-Tite Spare tire carrier option part # 6715 has less of an angle compared to the Curt. It is also angled out instead of in so the tire is angled dramatically upwards like with the Curt option. I have attached photos so that you can compare the two carriers.

  • Available Spare Tire Covers and Carriers
    CE Smith Spare Tire Cover # CE27440 is designed to be slipped over a mounted spare tire. It does not require you to unbolt the spare from the trailer or tire carrier. If you refer to the linked photo you'll see how the elastic hem snugs the cover over the back of the tire. If your old cover needs to be cut off you can probably then pull it out from between the tire and the trailer. If the spare is so close/tight on the trailer that you cannot slip the cover over the back edge of the...

I have included the installation details for you to review.

As long as you are within the capacities of the adapter you'd be fine. The ball mount has a trailer towing capacity of 7,500 lbs and the hitch opening has a capacity of 500 lbs tongue weight.

What you would need is the Curt Front Mount Receiver, # 31302, which is confirmed to work with your vehicle.
