Video Transcript for MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Maxxtow spare tire carrier. This has been designed for use with trailers up to a 3 inch by 5 inch frame. Part number is MT70214. This spare tire carrier is designed to give us plenty of room and still be able to take our tire along with us. With the offset design, it elevates the tire slightly. That gives us better clearance on the underside so we don't have to worry it bumping into the ground or anything like that, especially on these shorter boat style trailers.Now not only is that offset going to give us a little more height on our spare, but as you can see rather than the type that bolts right around the frame right here and just holds the tire up against it, it also gives up space and gets it out further and away from our trailer.

That's going to help us out a lot when it comes time to load and unload. Now the carrier's been designed to work with the 4 on 4 bolt pattern, which means you would have four holes in your wheel lug.You're going to measure from the outside edge of one of your holes to the center of the other one. If that, from this edge here to the middle is 4 1/2, this is going to work out well for you. If this is 4 3/4, you need to choose a different option. Now for the 5 on 4 3/4 bolt patterns we recommend part number CE27310G.

Now this carrier is designed to work in a lot of different applications, utility trailers, small campers, boats, so you need something that is going to hold up and be sturdy for quite a while.And to help make sure it lasts in all of those conditions for a very long time, all this steel has a nice thick black powder coat finish on it. And all of our hardware has the zinc finish so we won't have to worry about corrosion. From the back of our mounting plate here to the front here, we've got about six inch offset, so it's going to give us that kind of spacing away from our trailer to provide the room. Now the lugs that are going to come with the spare tire carrier are going to be 3/4 inch or 19 millimeter lugs.If that doesn't match what you currently have on your trailer you can buy these with the same size shake and thread pitch to match the ones you have so you only have to carry one lug wrench. Now the carrier is designed to support up to 100 pounds, but with the 4 on 4 bolt pattern, or for that matter, the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern, you're probably not going to get close to that.

Now the carrier gives us a lot of options as far as mounting go. These are going to be our upper two holes. You can see those here and here.And then we've got four holes on the bottom. That's what helps us to get all the way up to that 5 inch frame. You're going to choose the holes that you're going to use, based on your trailer's needs.

So we can either use this top hole or this top hole. This is a 4 inch trailer, just so you know. So on a 5 inch trailer, you're going to use these top holes. But use whichever hole is going to be closest to the frame. That's going to reduce any of the pivoting or movement. We are going to bring it up to this set of holes since we are working with a frame that we can do that on. It's just going to give our tire a little bit more elevation, get it up a little bit higher.Now we're going to grab our bolts and place those through. Now what we'll do is just place that right on top of the frame, just like that. That's going to hold our carrier there. You've got the plates that are going to go on the back. You see the holes are designed to match that in the carrier. So use the same hole we picked on the front and here to the back. And we're going to add on a flat washer and a lock washer, and we'll thread on our nut to help hold it in place.Same thing for the other side and you'll see we're placing these brackets on with the flat point towards the trailer. Now we're going to bring our bolt through the bottom here, and again, we want that to be as close to the trailer as possible and it's going to receive the same type hardware. And same thing for out last bolt. Now we'll start tightening down our hardware. We're going to use an 18 millimeter wrench and socket to do it.Once we've tightened these down evenly, top to bottom, you'll want to look in your instructions. There you'll find your torque specs. You're going to torque all four bolts down appropriately. Now for use on the 4 on 4 bolt pattern, we're going to use the lower hole and the hole directly above it, so the two that in line with each other. On our 5 bolt pattern, we're going to use this hole and this hole.So we've got a our carriage bolt. So we'll place that in the back of each of those holes. That square engages the square cut out in the plate so we can get our tire put in place. Now we'll place on our flat washer, our lock washer and the provided nut. You're going to do that of course, in both locations. Now, depending on the thickness of your trailer frame, you may have some extra bolt hanging out of the back, you can see like we do here.Once you have it installed, it's not a bad idea to cut those off just so you don't have to worry about hanging or hooking anything on them. And that will complete our look at the Maxxtow spare tire carrier, part number MT70214.

Good help when trying to determine which mount would work for my trailer. Item was on back order, but shipped close to when Jen said it would. My spare fit well, but there were just a couple of small issues. Product write up tells me the lug nuts supplied would be "the same size as the ones on your trailer" ... not quite. Lug nuts supplied are 3/4", trailer has 13/16" nuts, requiring 2 sockets to be carried. I'll head to hardware store to get lug nuts to match ones on trailer. Other minor issue was mounting bolt length. The kit is designed to fit many sizes of trailer frames. Mine is on the small side (2" wide) and the mounting bolts supplied (4 1/2 or 5 inches) were way too long. 3 1/2" bolts were plenty for my frame. Overall good experience with etrailer, as usual. 405319

Exactly what I wanted. Rise and offset are perfect for my trailer. Installation was very easy, only took about 10 minutes to install. 99955

Does what it is supposed to do - holds the spare tire securely. Was very easy to install and only took about 5 minutes. I do have to say that their 5-bolt pattern is slightly off (you'd have to see the instructions to know what I mean here) based on the wheel I bought with it but it was not enough to cause a real problem. Was just a little unexpected and that is the only reason I cannot give it a full 5 stars. Already thinking about purchasing again so I can have a backup spare setup so it can't be too bad, right? 384797

Just purchased the spare mount for our new Mitey Toon, mini pontoon boat. The mount actually arrived two days earlier than we had anticipated. Mount was installed easily and is sturdy enough for the 5.70 x 8 spare. All in all we are very pleased with etrailer. 539145

While the MaxxTow Tire Carrier went on fairly easily, I will probably have to find shorter bolts for the clamp portion, as the ones provided protrude too far into trailer bed for my liking. I am a bit concerned with how far out from side of trailer it holds the spare, also. Delivery was faster than predicted. 450035

This 'universal' tire carrier was advertised to fit both 4 and 5 lug wheels. My 5 lug wheel did not fit. Stud pattern was way off wheel bolt pattern in any configuration I tried. Ended up drilling the plate and moved a stud for it to work. Afterwards I read reviews on this product and seems many others had the same issue. 571196


Comments

This carrier is a fit for the most common trailer wheel bolt pattern, which is 5 lugs on a 4-1/2 inch bolt circle. It wont work with 5 on 4-34 inch or 5 on 5 inch bolt patterns as we mention in the product description.

I've gone years taking a risk I wouldn't get a flat on my boat trailer and decided enough is enough! Bought this spare tire carrier and installed in about 10 minutes. So easy and now no more worries when I hit the road! 408699

by:

THE PRICE WAS RIGHT AND IT IS MADE OF GOOD MATERIALS. THE PROBLEM IS THE PLATE IS NOT WIDE ENOUGH FOR THE RECTANGULAR TUBING THAT MOST TRAILERS USE. IT ALSO DID NOT WORK TO MOUNT ON THE ANGLE IRON MY TRAILER OR MOST TRAILERS HAVE.. I HAD TO MAKE A PRETTY MAJOR MODIFICATION TO MOUNT IT. I THOUGH I WAS HOME FREE AND WHEN i WENT TO MOUNT THE SPARE TIRE WHICH IS A FIVE HOLE AND IT DOES NOT FIT!!! I USED THE BOTTOM HOLE BUT THE TOP ONE FOR A 5 HOLE RIM DOES NOT FIT. I ENDED UP USING THE BOTTOM HOLE AND USED TWO OF MY OWN BOLTS THAT WENT THROUGH THE RIM HOLES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE PLATE. A WORK AROUND BUT IT DID THE JOB BUT MAKES FOR AN EXTRA BOLT. i HAVE A VERY STANDARD TRAILER SO I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT BRAND OF TRAILER THIS PRODUCT WAS MADE FOR??? iF THE PLATE WAS WIDER AND HAD TO SETS OF HOLES AND IF THE SPARE TIRE PLATE WAS BIGGER AND HAD ANOTHER SET OF HOLES SO STANDARD TRAILER RIMS (4 AND 5 BOLT) IT WOULD BE MUCH MORE VERSATILE . 446090

Works as advertised and has a decent amount of adjustment. I raised it to the higher setting to keep the tire away from the ground when going over the top of my driveway. Apologies for the messy garage in the pic, but very happy with the purchase for my 4'x10' Utility/ATV trailer. 520800

Worked out OK - I had to modify it to fit my 5 lug trailer wheel but that was easy - all it took was drilling 1 hole a little to the right on the bottom. This could of easily been done at the factory - not sure why they do not do it that way. I welded them to my trailer. 571971

Very nice well built bracket, however, I installed it in a horizontal position instead of a vertical position as most people. I had to get shorter bolts (7/16-14 x 2-1/2). The bolts that came with the bracket were way to long for my application. Most likely if you were installing it on the tongue that would not be an issue. Fit my 15'' tire just fine (4-4.5" holes.)

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier

Do you have a question about this Spare Tire Carrier?


  • Spare Tire Mounting Location on Trailer Frame
  • The spare tire can be mounted near the wheel and axle to the frame, but you will want more than 5 inches of ground clearance. I recommend the Extra Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier by Dutton-Lainson # DL22145 based on your photo. Every extra inch will help as trailer suspension normally has a deflection of about 4 inches so just 5 inches would be pretty tight but can work in most cases. Another option if you have enough tongue space to mount the tire vertically, you can use the...

  • Spare Tire Carrier and 4.80-12 Spare Tire
  • The 4.80-12 on your current tire is the size of the tire, and if it says high speed, that likely means it is a radial tire. The 4.80-12 radial tire I recommend is the Taskmaster # TT48012C, which fits 12" x 4" rims and has a load range of C for a maximum capacity of 990 lbs at 90 psi. To get this tire already on a 12" x 4" wheel there there is the Taskmaster # AT12R45WS, which is a white spoke wheel or the Taskmaster # AT12R45WM, which is a white mod wheel; each of these wheels has a 5...

  • Replacement 12 Inch Wheel and Tire for a Harbor Freight/HaulMaster Trailer
  • When measuring for bolt pattern on an even bolt pattern you would measure from the center of one hole to the center of the hole diagonally across from it. In your picture you started measuring at the 1 inch mark. So if the adjacent measurement is 2-13/16 or 2-7/8 inches on center as it looks in your picture then the diagonal is 4 inches. For a replacement tire and wheel for your trailer you can use # AM30540. I also recommend a spare tire carrier such as # MT70214.

  • Lug Nut Size for 1/2-20 Wheel Bolt
  • The Kenda 5.70-8 Bias Trailer Tire with 8" White Wheel # AM30140 fits 1/2"-20 wheel bolts so you will need a 1/2" lug nut such as the CE Smith # CE11051, though the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier # MT70214 does include the nuts and bolts needed.

  • What is the Amount of Rise on the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier
  • I went to the warehouse and measured the amount of rise on the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier, # MT70214. From the bottom of the trailer frame mount bracket to the top of the spare tire brake the measurement is 10-1/4 inches. This is the same height of the Fulton Spare Tire Carrier, # FSTC1000301.

  • Bolt-On Spare Tire Carrier for Aluminum I-Beam Boat Trailer
  • Our range of clamp-on trailer spare tire carriers is displayed on the linked page. You will want to choose one to both fit your frame dimensions and your spare's wheel bolt pattern. I like the MaxxTow # MT70214 for its 100-lbs weight rating and compatibility with both 4-lug and 5-lug trailer wheels. This fits frames up to 3-inches wide x 5-inches tall.

I have added links to video reviews of this carrier for you to take a look at.

  • Replacement Wheel Mounting Nuts and Bolts for MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier MT70214

  • Spare Tire Carrier Options for Cargo Trailer with 6 Inch Tall Frame
  • Since we don't have any frame mount spare tire carriers that can mount to a 6 inch tall trailer frame, we will need to consider other possible mounting options for a spare tire carrier. If your cargo trailer is enclosed, you an use a mount like the Rackem Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers # RA-16. A similar option is the use a section of Vertical E-Track # E19146 with the Rackem Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track # RA-16HST. Either of these options will mount to the wall of the enclosed...

The two next to each other on the top of the plate are 1-1/2 inches apart and from the lower bolt to the diagonal one it measures 4-1/4 inches.

  • Spare Tire and Carrier Recommendation for CE Smith Boat Trailer # CE48810
  • For the CE Smith trailer part # CE48810 the spare wheel and tire part # AM30030 would work well. Then for a carrier the MaxxTow part # MT70214 would work well too since it's compatible with that frame size.

  • Thank you for the included image. I was able to contact MaxxTow and find out that the mounting hole distance between the holes of the Spare Tire Carrier # MT70214 is 2-3/4 inches. You will want to check your approximate distance to ensure compatibility with your trailer frame. I have linked the above product to this page for your convenience.

  • Trailer Spare Tire Carrier for 15 Inch 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern Rim
  • Unfortunately, the Dutton-Lainson Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22144 will only fit up to 12 inch rims. An option for your 15 inch rims with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern is the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier # MT70214.

  • Installing MaxxTow MT70214 Spare Tire Carrier on Trailer With L-Shaped Angle Iron Frame
  • The 2 inch tubing would be a good start, but the MaxxTow # MT70214 Spare Tire Carrier works on trailers with frames a minimum of 3 inches tall, so you'd still have another inch of height to make up, in addition to the 2 inches of width provided by the square tubing. Something like a length of 1 x 2 inch solid steel bar stock would work well.

  • Location of Spare Tire Carrier to be Installed on Trailer Frame
  • Essentially, you can install a spare tire carrier anywhere it will fit. I recommend placing it on the tongue as far back from the coupler as possible without interfering with anything. This will push its weight as far back as possible on the trailer. I've linked our selection of frame mounted spare tire carriers for trailer frames like the MaxxTow # MT70214. This one is for 3 by 5 inch trailer frames and will fit rims that have a 4 on 4 or 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern.
