Today well be installing the Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier fitting five, six and eight lug wheels, part number fhdstc0101. Now this kit will allow you to mount your spare tire up and out of the way with this corrosion resistant clamp-on spare tire carrier. It will fit most five, six, and eight lug wheels up to 16 inches in diameter. It will also fit trailer tongues up to three inches wide and five inches high. Now, weve gone ahead and laid out the spare tire carrier on a table to show you what it comes with. This is a clamp-on installation.
Well simply find a suitable location for the spare tire carrier where we can then use the u bolts to run through the carrier and over our trailer tongue. Well then take the two brackets and fit them over the u bolt. Youll notice that the brackets have several holes drilled in them. For our top mount, we will be using the hole that is the farthest away from the other four. Now, with both brackets in place, well use a lock washer and a nut where well thread them onto the u bolt finger tight.
Well now take the other u bolt, run it through the bracket as close to the trailer tongue as possible and then through the brackets and again use the lock washer and the nuts and thread them on finger tight. Now, once weve made sure that our spare tire carrier is in the proper location, we can then go ahead and tighten it down using our wrench. Now, with our spare tire carrier secured, well begin mounting our wheel. Included with the spare tire carrier are two carriage bolts, two push nuts, two flat washers, two lock washers and two nuts for mounting your wheel. Well take the carriage bolt, slide it through the bracket from the back side where we can then use the push nut to hold the bolt in place.
Now, youll notice that even with the push nut securing the bolt, you can still slide it back and forth. Now, with both carriage bolts in, well take our wheel, slide it onto the bolts and then using the flat washer, lock washer and nut, well secure our wheel to the spare tire carrier. And, with the two nuts tight, our spare tire is secure. And, thatll complete our installation of the Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier fitting five, six, and eight lug wheels, part number fhdstc0101.

Well I received the new tire carrier today. I knew it would be a close fit. I had gone over the specs with your rep who called the factory to get some more measurements which let me see that it might fit. I installed it today with only some minor adjustments necessary. Woo- hoo. The unit is well designed and made.with a nice anti rust coating. I hope to get many years use out of it. Thanks etrailer for your professionalism, you were very helpful. 202566

Put this on my boat trailer. Very easy to install and isn't bulky or get in the way of the boat. I was tired of keeping the spare tire in the back of the pickup and this works perfect. Hard to find 6 lug spare tire carriers in stores and I feel for the price, this is a very good product. I will certainly come to etrailer first anytime I need anything else. 275150

The picture is a bit deceiving, this is a really heavy duty bracket. I was reluctant to buy it based on the picture, but if you watch the video you can see how heavy duty it is. I am using it for a 6 lug 15" spare tire on a Boatmate trailer. The factory bracket broke off while I was towing. Thank goodness I didn't run over the tire. This is the only bracket I will ever recommend. I got great service, George let me know when it was shipped and checked in after I received it as well. A good product, fair price and excellent service, that is how you get and keep customers. Thank folks. 189343
This bolted right onto the tongue of the trailer and the 15" - 6 hole spare wheel/tire fit right on. Just a note for 6 bolt wheels, you don't use holes directly across from each other (i.e. holes 1 and 4). Instead you have to bolt it up so that there is only 1 hole between the holes that you use. Looks good. Only improvement I would add is that in addition to lock washers I would like to see Nylok nuts on this product or include a small tube of Lok-tite. I'm going to check the tightness after the first trip or two and may add these if necessary. 254251

Nice Product/Loose Nuts The product looks nice and durable. I was concerned about how high it would actually raise my spare off the ground because I have a 6 stud size 16 Class D tire, but there is good clearance. The only problem I have noticed is that the lock washers do not keep the nuts from loosening so I have to check it every time I stop and I have had to tighten it a few times. Easy solution just get some lock nuts. Overall, I'm very happy with the product and etrailer was great with their customer service. 2237

I thought the product was almost perfect. It was easily installed to my Jet Ski trailer, with or without the instructions. The only problem I ran into was when tightening down the U bolt, I ran out of thread as this was designed for a min 2' wide frame and mine was an 1.5 inches wide. Had that been explained prior to purchasing it would have been appreciated. However, after slipping in a couple washer (not included) in front of and behind the lock washers I was able to mount easy enough. 160965

This is simple replacement for my broken spare tire mount for my Boatmate trailer. The mount fit perfectly and is very secure. I have a 15" six lug rim and it is not easy finding a mount that will accomodate this rim. I have looked around. The price was right and to give you an idea of this company's responsiveness, I ordered the mount on Sunday afternoon 6/12 (online) and it was shipped to my house by Tuesday 6/14 mid-morning. Thank you, and keep up the good work. 16994

Works well (especially for my trailer which has wider frame channels that are too tall for most of these types of mounts). It was hard to tell in the picture, but the tube is not just held in place with the U bolts, but also welded to the vertical mounting plate so it won't swivel and work loose. 284452
by: Brian C.08/20/2016
The bracket fit well, was easy to install, and provides a strong and secure mount for my spare. 285901
by: Art R07/07/2016
The spare tire mount for my boat trailer is built very well! However, I also ordered wheel locks and the bolts supplied with the mount (13 threads) do not match the wheel locks (20 threads) so I cannot use the wheel locks on the spare tire carrier which was my main reason for ordering both. 269200
by: Gary K.11/21/2013
This is a great product. This is the 2nd one I've bought as I have two trailers. High strength with a high quality metal finish. I highly recommend. etrailer.com thank you for the fine service. I ordered this on a Sunday morning and it shipped same day.......a Sunday??!! Unbelievable! 108078
by: Perry Blessing08/11/2014
Very easy to install the tire carrier your self. It is a little cumbersome to mount the tire on the carrier without help to support the weight of the tire and also mount the nut and washers with only two hands. Mounted two carriers and one tire by myself in about 25 minutes. 145896
by: Bill H09/23/2014
The device is just as explained and mounted right up to my trailer tongue. Erika was very helpful in placing this order and stating that it would fit my spare tire without a problem. The tire is a 6 lug pattern 15" trailer tire. Thanks for the great service. 152658
I bought this one because it is one of only a few that I could find that said it was able to fit a 16" , 6 lug wheel. That was not correct, it had to be modified - another hole had to be drilled in order to accommodate my spare. 255694
by: Jay S.10/01/2014
I bought this to modify for a better position for the spare than it provides. I will weld it to the tongue side of my utility trailer which is a much better fit than how it is normally used. Very happy with the purchase. 153842
by: Jim S02/12/2012
The products were exactly as described. More importantly the service from etrailer was great. Super fast shipping and packaged the best of anything I have ever ordered. I will definitely order from etrailer again. 31668

This product is exactly what they described. Fits my 6 lug rim perfect. Easy to install also. E-trailer is an awesome place to find trailer part and accessories. Will definitely be back for more. Fast shipping!! 108823
by: Kevin H05/05/2015
Great product! Fits a 6 lug wheel. Not a big fan of the nuts as I prefer the nylon lock nuts but they are cheap to replace. Wish there was a way to secure (lock) the spare tire carrier to the trailer. 190738
by: Steve K.05/17/2016
Better than expected; worked very well with my 15" spare boat tire, 6 lug. Save a ton of space from storing the tire in the bed on my truck. Well constructed. Definitely recommended. 250572

I've had one of these on my boat trailer for a number of years. It's been working great. I ordered this one so I could add a 2nd spare. GREAT SERVICE from e-Trailer, as always..... 292459

Solid product, the carriage bolts were poor quality, threads were messed up on one. I will be buying new carriage bolts. Not a big deal, otherwise very good product 249541
by: Nick O.09/30/2015
Nice product with all the adaptability to fit almost any trailer. Easy to install and well made. Delivery was faster than expected and was packaged very well. 228478
So far, so good! I installed it on my jeep trailer, and mounted the spare. Seems real secure, and I certainly feel better knowing I have a spare with me now! 252755
Product came in as ordered, local trailer companies only carried smaller spare carriers that didn't fit. It bolted on quickly and seems to be working well. 160329
Worked great. Very sturdy. The U-bolts supplied were a little long for the width of my trailer tongue, but it's no big deal since they are on the inside. 131379
by: Pete B06/23/2016
Mounted easily and worked with a 6 bolt pattern spare. The hardest part about the install was trying to figure out where on the trailer to locate it. 264384

Review from a similar Fulton Hi-Mount in Trailer Cargo Control
You guys/gals at eTrailer are a model for GREAT customer service and products. I'm an IT Professional and love the order tracking with a map ... never seen that before. The product came quickly (thanks for upgrading my shipping FOR FREE!). Nicely manufactured part and the short bolts fit nicely on the relatively short single tongue of my 5x8 Carry-On trailer (13" wheels) with enough clearance to allow swinging up the wheeled tongue jack. The height of this unit allowed for ample ground clearance (about 10") from the bottom of the spare to the ground. In the event that the trailer ball came off at speed, the tire would hit the ground before the end of the coupler, not a good situation but I think the trailer would be less likely to dig in and pitch its contents off like a trebuchet! After looking at it installed, I think I could raise it an inch or so by sliding the unit up on the tongue and using a block to takes up the space between the top of the tongue and the bolts. Very happy ... if you need a tongue mount in a cramped space like I did, I highly recommend this. There is also a hole in the section that extends out away from the trailer's tongue through which you can pass a chain/security cable and if you cinch it up tight enough will prevent removal of the wheel and/or the mount itself. Nice! 124743
