Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Universal Spare Tire Carrier - 6715

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (50 Customer Reviews)

Front mount trailer hitch mounted spare tire carrier relocates your spare tire to the front of your vehicle. Universal bolt pattern for mounting a variety of tire sizes.


Easy install with 245x75x16 8 lug on my 2500HD Duramax. Hardly notice the angle of the carrier.Glad I had a Draw tite j hook locking hitch pin and receiver.


The hitch appears constructed well, however there are multiple places on the hitch, where the lack of secure packaging while shipping - caused the paint to be rubbed off, exposing the raw metal. This also may have been cused by the other purchased items - "rolling" around in the box during shipping.

Additionally, the manufacturer designed the hitch-mount holes for the suplied 7/16" carriage bolt. 7/16" bolts are the LEAST common bolts/nuts in the industry, so as far as changing out the length or finding replacements is difficult at best. This is very short-sighted by the manufacturer.

Lastly, if you have a rim/spare to be mounted on this hitch, check to see if the lug bolts are recessed (i.e. tapered/conical shaped) - as this could cause a serious problem when trying to mount the spare on the hitch.

I would not buy this product - and in fact, I may be putting mine up for sale, pending the estimate for custom made nuts with a tapered end.

I am sorry that it arrived in this condition. Customer Service will be in touch.


what can i say, i purchased this spare tire carrier to carry the spare tire for my 5th wheel RV, easily installed tire fits the only suggestion would be for longer carriage bolts the bolts supplied may be ample for a standard steel wheel however the bigger RV's have a much thicker wheel rim. the supplied bolts using the lock washer did not leave any bolt threads past the nut.


You should rethink the bolt fasteners


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.


Bought this to carry a spare tire on the front trailer hitch receiver that I installed on the front of my Ford E-450 motorhome. I am very happy with the quality, finish and fit.


Fits as expected. I added a hitch tightened to cut down on wobbling or bouncing. I installed a wheel spacer to the carrier since this seems to be designed for a steel wheel and the fasteners would not hold my aluminum wheel without causing some cosmetic damage.


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.


Accomplished exactly what I needed! Great service from etrailer.


Hitch mount spare tire carrier works great, used for many miles with no issues. Easy on and off. All purchases have been good quality.

Very happy with spare carrier,works well


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.


Great part and service


I like the flexibility of this product -- good for carrying an extra trailer spare. Nice that it comes with bolt retainers. A little wiggly in my front receiver, but not enough that I have bothered to shim it. I would like to get a couple more for my other trailer tire sizes.


Very rugged construction. Carried heavy spare to the top of Alaska with no issues.


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.


Well we searched for quite awhile, returned a "universal spare tire carrier" from another site that didn't hold our 75# deep dish rimmed spare tire for our class C motorhome and finally came across this one. We were able to mount the tire but not with the deep dish toward the carrier, but it fits fine the other way. We have yet to leave the driveway but feel good about the purchase, looks like we can safely leave for Alaska with a spare tire on board!!


Received the Universal Spare Tire Carrier yesterday. It is exactly what I expected and will work perfectly for my Class B motorhome. Once I receive the balance of my order (Yakima Backwing) I will be set.

Thank you etrailer.


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.


Well Made , 7/16 Bolts Should Be Replaced With 1/2 x 2" Bolts. Bolt Retainer Threaded Clips Are Junk. The Bolts Should Be Welded In Place For Your Bolt Pattern. Make One With A 90deg. Head So It Fits Inside A 16" Bud Wheel. Tire Sit's Straight Up & Down Not On A Angle.


If it was just a bit tighter in the reciever it would be perfect! But what is perfect!


i ordered This Item, The Sales people are vary knowledgable, Courteous ,the product arrived quick and Packaged correctly, installation was a snap as i ordered the front receiver part also earlier ,The product fit my Toyota Tundra as intended, after i installed my Spare tier on the tier carrier no one damages my front and bumper or grill on my truck as the street i Park is vary Busy all the time as lots of restaurants near by,This product just solved my entire problem as people Pay attention how they parallel park without bumping in to my Truck, it is a total lifesaver. I highly recommended.


The quality is fine. It will not fit my 295, 70,R 17 onto my front receiver hitch. Thankfully I have a welder. Im sure it will work great for many smaller tires.


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 and George J. for demonstrating that some companies are still customer service focused. Great job and thanks much! I will be a return customer.


Easy to install,puts spare where it's easy to access.


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.
