Video Transcript for RackEm Spare Tire Carrier Review

Today we're here in our enclosed trailer and we're going to be taking a look at the Rackem Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track, part number RA-16HST. Now you'll see here on our trailer, we've got our spare tire just laying on the ground which is common but it's always in the way so you're always having to move it out of the way whenever you want to load something in or get it out of your trailer. Now this particular trailer here, it already has some standard vertical E-Track, the part number on the E-Track is E19148. This Rackem spare tire carrier is designed to go in any of the slots here, depending on where you want to mount the spare tire. We're going to go ahead and put our tire down low here. You'll notice there's a little clip here that you'll squeeze in so then you'll slide it into the track, drop it down, secure it. To remove it, pull in on the tab, gently lift up and drop it down. We'll go ahead and reinstall it here in our E-Track. We'll need to remove the wing nut and the flat washer. Once we have that done, we can go ahead and take our spare tire and set up in place.

Now you'll want to go through the center hole on your spare tire, you'll then take the threaded arm on the backside, go through one of the lug nut holes, we'll then take our flat washer and our wing nut and tighten it down. This will secure the tire here to the holder. Now we have our tire secure here on our E-Track, we don't have the problem of the tire on the floor and in the way. Yet it's easily removable when we need it if we ever have a flat tire and that'll do it for our look at the Rackem Spare Tire Holder for E-Track systems, part number RA-16HST. .

My Rackem Spare Tire Rack has been mounted on my hauler wall for a year. There have been no problems with it. The tire stays in place with lots of trips, it's a very easy product to install that works. 494789

- RA-16HST

I was concerned about putting the weight of a spare tire on the e-Track, but it really is not a problem. This bracket holds the tire up close and tight, so there's really no room for the tire to move once it is screwed down. The e-track on the front of my trailer is screwed very solidly into the metal frame of the V-nose structure, so the weight of the tire goes right into the frame, and isn't trying to pull wood screws out of plywood. In the pictures, I have the tire mounted low because that is the most convenient place for placing and removing the tire, but it works equally well on the higher tracks, and that gets it out of the way for loading most things in the trailer. 127526

The RackEm RA-16 works fairly well, but has a couple of design flaws, both of which have been noted by other reviewers: 1. The threaded nut is difficult to maneuver and not very long. This makes placing relatively large tires (16" 8-lug wheels in my case) difficult. 2. The main post is rectangular, unlike a wheel center which is pretty much always is round. Both of these flaws tend to scratch aluminum wheels. To deal with the first problem I used a plastic washer and a metal washer, which made it even more difficult to mount the wheel. To fix the second problem, I have a sturdy rag rapped around the post. The wheel has been mounted in my trailer for a year. Getting it up there was such a hassle that it is going to stay there unless I need it as a spare. Fortunately, I can check the tire pressure with it mounted. This product is a great idea, however, it would be MUCH improved this were a two-piece, or three-piece design with protection for aluminum surfaces. Perhaps inspiration can be found from a garden hose faucet. 368641

I have had two of these break on me so far. The company did replace the second free of charge but when it snapped, the spare came down on the car I was hauling inside my trailer. You can see the two tabs on the top that hold the bracket in the E-Track are not substantial. That was the point of failure on both. Perhaps it is just not strong enough for the weight of full size 15" wheels. 682215

I had my spare tire bungee corded to the inside wall of my trailer. Now it's mounted to my E-Track about 4 1/2 feet up the wall. It really is nice to have the extra floor space. 200861

Its been a year since I mounted my Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track. Ive been over lots of dusty trails and so far, my spare tire hasnt budged an inch. That is good for two reasons. Great product quality, AND no flat tires!!! P.S. It also is a great place to hang a wet or dusty riding jacket.

Works as it should. I had to trim about a 1/4 off the top of the mount to make my trailer spare tire slip over it easier, but no big deal. Works great in my horizontal e-track on the trailer wall. 558330

Great Products for both the spare tire/wheel and the carrier. Neglected to purchase a spare for my trailer when I bought it and this site had a great selection that allowed me to match my tires and rims. Carrier works perfect for my setup. 450211

good product. helps remove tire/wheel out of way while loading up the trailer. tie-down screw (where you secure wheel down with lug nut) can stand to be a bit shorter. I split a short piece of water hose and protected the inside wheel hole from the square hook. Overall worked out well for my needs. 774484

I bought this to mount a spare tire in my 5X8 enclosed Trailer. In short, I love it. I can move it anywhere on my railing system on either side and can even remove it if I have an extra big cargo load. My trailer gets pulled long distances and having the spare was a must. Getting the spare out of my truck bed and or off the floor of the trailer to save room was a must. This was ideal for me. 757510

Ask the Experts about this Rackem Spare Tire Carrier

  • Best Placement of E-Track in Enclosed Trailer for Holding Spare Tire Rack
    A single spare tire mounted in your trailer will not have too much effect on tongue weight but if your application means installing multiple E-Track spare tire holders # RA-16HST then you will want to try to distribute the load evenly if possible. For reference I have linked our main page for E-Track supplies. If the choice is between increasing your tongue weight or placing the weight in the rear of the trailer, behind the rear axle, then I would go for installing them up front. When...

  • Will the E Track Spare Tire Carrier part # RA-16HST Fit Horizontal E-Track on Trailer Wall
    The E Track Spare Tire Carrier part # RA-16HST that you referenced would be what you need. It will attach to horizontal E-track like what you have. I attached a picture of it being used in horizontal E-track on a trailer wall like yours.

  • Can Rack'em E-Track Spare Tire Mount be Used on the Exterior of a Trailer
    Technically you could mount E-track on the exterior of your trailer and use spare tire carrier # RA-16HST. However, it is really best used on the interior of the trailer since the carrier is not a permanent attachment. If there isn't any free space on the frame to mount a carrier such as # FHDSTC0101 then I recommend welding on carrier # 413200 which is normally seen on gooseneck trailers.

  • Could Rack Em Spare Tire Carrier # RA-16HST Carry 19.5 inch Wheel
    I spoke with Rack Em, and the # RA-16HST spare tire carrier will work with basically all wheels with a diameter of 12 inches and up. The wheel bore will need to be able to clear the end piece of the carrier, which measures 2-15/16 inches by 2 inches. There is not a specific weight capacity for this carrier, but their engineer let me know that it has been tested up to 300lbs.

  • Will RackEm Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Work With 6-Lug Wheels
    I checked out our Expert answers and could not find a reference to limits on the wheel lugs the # RA-16HST would work with. As long as the pilot hole on your tire measures at least 2-15/16 inches diameter, your tire will fit over the end of the arm on the carrier. It uses only one of the wheel lug holes to hold the tire in place. I have attached a photo that shows this carrier being used with a wheel that has 6 lug holes you can check out. To be able to use this carrier you will...

  • Spare Tire Mount Recommendation for Trailers with Limited Frame Space
    We do have a couple different spare tire mount options for you to check out. You could go with the Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Systems, # RA-16HST, that you referenced, but you will also need an E-Track rail. For this I recommend the 4 ft Vertical E-Track, # E19146. The E-track system was primarily designed to be installed inside of an enclosed trailer, but you could install it on the outside of the trailer if you would like. I do not recommend installing it on the side of the trailer...

  • Can E-Track Mounted Spare Tire Carrier be Used on the Outside of a Trailer
    The spare tire carrier for E-Tracks, # RA-16HST, would hold and secure a spare outside of a trailer but it would not be ideal. The issue is that there will be some movement of the tire since the E-Track connection is not tight. It is secure, but there would be some bouncing. What I recommend is a frame mount spare tire carrier, see link. You can bolt these to the frame nice and tight and secure the spare to the carrier tight as well so you will not get near the amount of movement that...

  • Is Rackem Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Hard to Fit to Trailer Wheels
    The Rack'em Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Item # RA-16HST is not known for being hard to fit to trailer wheels. We did have one customer come back and say it didn't work for them but they didn't give us any size details of their wheel/tire so it's hard to say. We've had a far larger majority of people report back that this fit well with their wheels. We have several examples of it easily fitting standard trailer wheels as well. I attached an install video for this as well for you to...

  • Recommendation of a Spare Tire Carrier for Inside a Cargo Trailer
    I would recommend the Rack Em Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers, item # RA-16. This rack will allow you to hang the spare tire on the wall of the trailer and additional holders, item # RA-16HST, can be added to carry another tire below the first or other items. The Spare Tire Carrier - Horse Trailer, item # 413200, is designed as an external weld on application.

  • 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...

  • Will Spare Tire Rack # RA-16 Hold Two 225/75-15 Tires in a 24ft Enclosed Trailer
    Your 225/75-15 tires should be slightly over 28-9/32 inches in diameter, so combined you would be looking at about 56-19/32 inches in order to clear both tires. I spoke with my contact at Rack'Em, and the # RA-16 spare tire rack has an overall length of 49 inches, but the E-track portion of the rack is only 25-1/2 inches long. Even with one tire in the top slot and the other in the bottom slot, you would still be a few inches short of fitting both tires on the rack. If your trailer...

  • Availability of E-Track Mounting Brackets
    The E-track brackets like what is attached to the CargoSmart Accessory Bar # 3481750 you referenced are not available as a separate component, but we do have many other accessories that use the same type of mount. These include the Spare Tire Carrier # RA-16HST, Storage Hook # EM59142, and the Wood Beam Socket # 59149. I have attached a link that will take you to our complete selection of similar products that you can look through.

  • Erickson Vertical E-Track E19146
    I have a solution for you, but the Erickson Vertical E-Track # E19146 only comes in sections 4 feet long. There are no vertical E-tracks that are shorter. However, the E-tracks can be cut to fit the length needed for your trailer. The # E19146 with the Rackem Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track # RA-16HST will work well for your trailer. Since the E-track will be a smaller section, you will want to ensure that it is secured to either the trailer frame or with backing plates, like # BPEZ,...

  • Minimum Installed Height for the RA-16 Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Cargo Trailers
    The minimum height of the # RA-16 Spare Tire Rack is 48 3/4 inches from the inside of the hook that installs from the runner in your trailer. The hook portion of the rack is welded to the vertical E-Track portion of the spare tire carrier, so if you needed to adjust the height you would need to remove a portion of the bottom of the spare tire carrier. There are attachment holes in the E-Track portion of the rack at 22-1/2, 30-1/2, 38-1/2 and 46-1/2 inches, for securing the rack to the trailer...

These can be used with any of the E-Track strap products shown on the link at right, including the 12-foot ratcheting strap # EM59136. Other available accessories include spare tire mounts like # RA-16HST from RackEm.

  • What Solutions are Available to Hang Spare Wheels and Tires for a Quad in an Enclosed Trailer
    The RackEm Spare Tire Rack, part RA-16, would be a great solution, provided the top clip can hang on the top edge of the wall. And provided the spare has a large enough pilot hole to fit over the hangers. If there is not a place to hang the track from, you can use standard E-Track, part # E19146 that does not use a top hook. You will also need extra spare carriers, part # RA-16HST to hang the wheel and tires from.

  • Spare Tire Carrier and Cargo Control Tie Downs for 5 x 8 Enclosed Trailer
    The various spare tire carriers for trailers that we offer are shown on the linked page. Their fit with your spare is based on the wheel bolt pattern not the actual tire size. We also have different types of carriers including hitch-mount, bumper-mount, frame-mount and carriers with height lift which will increase ground clearance. For example, if you have a 3 x 4-inch trailer frame and your wheels are 4- or 5-lug types you could use the Fulton # FSTC1000301. If you have a 4-inch...

  • Will the # RA-16 Store Two Full Size Spares in a 1995 Wells Cargo 5 X 8 Enclosed Trailer
    Yes, If you use the top and bottom slots on the Spare Tire Carrier, item # RA-16, to hang your tires there will be enough room. You will also need the Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track, item # RA-16HST, for the second wheel and tire. I figured your tire height and it should be 24.62 inches. If we round that up to 25 inches then you would need 50 total inches to hang the tires. From my calculations a 14 inch wheel and tire combination will also work with the Spare Tire Rack for Enclosed Trailers.
