Video Transcript for Swagman Hitch Bike Racks P318 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the replacement wheel hoops for Swagman XTC series bike racks. This part number replaces the left and right side wheel hoops for your Swagman XTC bike rack. It is a direct replacement, so they're identical to the ones that originally came on your bike rack. It installs on the rack with the included knobs. And the knob is attached to a bolt. And then we have the plastic shims.It's a really nice design.

Also, it comes with new rubber straps for each wheel hoops. So once you have your bike installed on the rack, this goes over. And then you line up one of the holes with the stay-put on the other side, and attach it. And that's going to secure your bike in place on the rack. This'll work with the Swagman XTC series platform style two-bike rack for inch and a quarter, and two inch hitches, part number S64670.

And the Swagman XTC series platform style four bike rack for two inch hitches, part number S64665.That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement wheel hoops for Swagman XTC series bike racks.

Replace a set of damaged wheel hoops on your Swagman XTC Series bike carrier. Knobs, bolts and shims are included for mounting hoops to bike rack.


This is exactly what I needed. I have a mountain bike with dual suspension. I also have the swagman xc2 with original wheel hoops. My mtb didn't sit well in the original hoops so I bought these ones which are a PERFECT FIT. Now I can confidently put a road bike and mtb on my bike rack


Changed the wheel hoops on my Swagman XC2 bike rack to extend the largest wheel base from 52" to 64" just by changing the hoops! Great way to make my rack work for me rather than buying another one when this one was still in mint condition. And eTrailer service has been outstanding. I'm glad they stock parts for Swagman racks!

Still our go-to bike rack, going strong on our trailer trips
John L - 12/04/2016


Product was as described. This was a replacement part for our existing bike rack, and fit the rack. The part was shipped the same day it was ordered and arrived as scheduled two days later. Two status emails were sent.
Service was excellent and I would definitely order from eTrailer again. No complaints.

Youre welcome. I still like the product, it works as intended.I would buy from eTrailer again.

Already owned bike rack but, in backing up auto, damaged an important part. Contacted via the web, found the part I needed to replace, ordered it, and three days later it arrived. Quick service and quality product. Prefect!

Bike rack works well. Troubled that rust has developed around the holes in the rack and the metal pegs that go thru them to hold the rack in place to hold the bikes.
Douglas F - 12/26/2018


Had to replace this bar following a slight accident backing up the vehicle on which the full bike rack is installed. The rack held up very well, all things considered. Just had to replace two pieces, which was the more economical choice vs buying a whole new rack. Have absolutely NO COMPLAINTS. Shipping expedient, customer service on the ball with excellent follow up without being prodded. The item is exactly as explained and was very easy to install-- only took a few minutes to get the bike rack back to new condition. I will copy this exact review for part #SP478 that also needed replacement related to this repair. Don't hesitate to buy from or deal with this company!


After a backing-up accident, I damaged not only my bike, but also the right bar and wheel support on my bike rack. I assumed that I would have to buy another rack, but found that I could purchase the two damaged parts from etrailer.

The rack is as good as new, and I use it quite often.

Thanks, etrailer!


I've owned a Swagman XTC 2-Bicycle Rack since 2013 and have used it for many local and long-distance hauls. It was easy to assemble and to use, and it has been reliable. Although I have not given this piece of equipment the TLC that it deserves, it has held up well. When, due to a stupid error in dismantling one of the cradles, I had to order a replacement, I was able to purchase it at a very reasonable price and had it shipped to me very quickly. I still think this bicycle carrier was a great investment -- especially for the price -- and would recommend it confidently to anyone interested in a light-weight easy-to-use carrier.


I ordered these to replace the oval loops of the Swagman XC2, after having my $2500 mountain bike shoot off the rack as I went around the corner. The front suspension on the bike gave just enough for the tire to start coming out of the oval, and with the top bar of the bike on an angle, it became loose and shot off the rack. After that I started adding a nylon strap from the handlebar stem of the bike back to the center upright of the bike rack and adding a strap around the front tire and oval loop of the XC2.


I Would never buy this again. It has rusted and the button to release the bikes gets stuck often so I carry a tool that helps to put pressure on it to open it. I mtn. bike a lot so keep the rack on my car. Wish I had spent the extra money and bought a heavy and sturdy rack like a Kuat or a One Up. However, if you ride infrequently and will be taking the rack off every time you use it, you may have better luck. You get what you pay for price, cheap product.


This is a very good product, quickly delivered in great condition, and at a very good price! We've been using this product on our car for a year now and it still works and looks like new (and we don't keep or car in a garage)!

Our Swagman bike ak replacement parts are doing great after 1.5 t=years of frequent use. No rust, no significant wear and tear, no bending. The rubber is still in great shape.
Tom T - 07/10/2021


The bike rack part I ordered showed up as they said it would and the telephone support was great. What I liked most about it is that the newer version is actually better made than the original was so I suspect it should last much longer. I will likely order another for the other side of the rack.


I bought these to replace the default tire hoops on my recently purchased swagman xc-2 bike rack. I own a 29" wheeled bike and the default tire hoops while good, didn't leave me feeling confident enough for my type of bike, when taking corners in my car. I purchased these and literally received them 10 minutes ago. I took off the default tire hoops and installed these. Very easy to install, like they were meant for this rack. The tire hoops do not accomadate the wider tire size as the default tire hoops that came with this bike rack. I have a 29"x2.6" Maxxis Rekon for front tire and it fits snuggly, but not difficult to get in and out of this tire hoop, be mindful of this before ordering these or get the tire hoops meant for "fat bike" tires. I love the straps that secure the wheels of the bike. I now have 3 securing points of contact vs. 1.


This was a replacement part for our swagman bike rack that got crushed by our truck. The customer service was excellent!! I spoke with customer service and they worked with me to make sure it was shipped so that I had it before I left for vacation and in the cheapest way possible.
The Swagman XTC2 bike rack is awesome too, which I also purchased through etrailer.


Thanks for the quick help getting my bike rack back together.

Got hit in a parking lot in Huntsville Al.
Didnt know until daylight that I had a problem.

We were on our way to Cape San Blas Fl for a month,

Found a Guy in Appalachacola Fl about 30 miles east.

Damage was front wheel was gone. Called Bike Line in Carmel, In and they ordered a new front wheel and some small parts. Shipped to Appala------

Talked to James and ordered wheel hoops and a bar that the hoops fit on.

Bike and Bike Rack are ready for pick up today.

Great service from everyone.


I absolutely love my bike rack for so many reasons including putting our sandy beach chairs on it, attaching our baby jogger etc. Someone backed up into my car the other day and bent one of the arm hoops. They of course did not leave their name but at least they also did not hit my car. Easy, cheap fix to purchase new wheel hoops! They do come in pairs and I only needed one, but hey if it happened to me once, it will happen again. And who knows maybe the extra hoop will fit on the rack and make itself useful.
Thank you e-trailer for making this a simple fix!


Had to order replacement wheel hoops for my swagman xtc 4 bike rack. They were exactly the same as the original parts. Installed them and the bike rack looks like new. was very easy to order from. Received the parts in 2 days along with free shipping. I will order from etrailer again if I need to.


The items shipped fast and arrived on time. I will definitely order from again!

I really love these Swagman wheel hoops. They are a great upgrade to my original wheel hoops. I have no regrets with this purchase!
Lance E - 08/26/2020


I have owned the bike rack for several years and love the fact that I don't have to lift anything high. A car ran into my back end, so I had to replace 1 of the bike holders. eTrailer responded extremely fast and kept me informed every step of the way. That's the best service I've received from anyone yet.


We ordered our replacement bike rack equipment on a Sunday and it was on our doorstep four days later. We lost our part in a trip and did not think we could replace it - but, etrailer had our part and made it easy to order.


This is a great bike rack, easy to use and well constructed. We had to buy a replacement set of the wheel hoops because someone apparently decided we didn't need one! We have now placed bolts thru each end of the bars so the wheel hoops can't readily slide off. That's the only recommendation I would make to the manufacturer.


I needed to replace the wheel loop because someone hit and bent it. etrailer had replacements in stock at what I considered a reasonable price. I placed the order and Trailer (George) kept me informed about the shipping. The new parts came a day early and fit perfectly.

etrailer sets and sustains a very high standard of customer care and quality product.




The hoops have been a perfect ad on to my Swagman Bike Rack they are long enough for my Easy Racer recumbent and my tandem.

Do u have the xc2 or xtc?i have the xc2 bike rack and thinking to buy just the xtc wheel hoop for a longer wheelbase for my tandem bike.what is your tandem wheelbase?just for preferences.thank you
-- comment by: red - 04/12/2015


The wheel hoop was bent in an accident. I only really needed to replace one, but the price was good enough to make buying the set painless. Excellent service, easy to order and received promptly. Price was right and product was as described. Tracking information was easy to use and very accurate. I will be purchasing more from Etrailer.


I accidentally bent a Swagman XTC Series Wheel Hoop and had EXACTLY what I needed to replace it. The order was placed and executed seamlessly, and was delivered quickly. I highly recommend this company.


I've been really happy with this "inexpensive" rack... backed into a tree, and etrailer had replacement parts to me in a matter of days. Great service... definitely shop here in the future!

  • Could Swagman Wheel Hoop Fit TransIt Flatbed 2DLX 2-Bike Hitch Rack
    If the bar that the wheel hoop slides on measures 1-3/16 inch square the Replacement Wheel Hoop # P318 would fit it, but aside from that we say for certain as we do not carry the brand TransIt.

  • Dimension Of Square Tubing Needed for Swagman Replacement Wheel Hoops
    The square tubing that the Replacement Wheel Hoops for Swagman XTC Series Bike Carriers, part # P318 are designed to fit measure 1-1/4 X 1-1/4 inches. The wheel hoops include the knobs, bolts, and shims, along with the rubber straps for the wheel hoops.

  • Inside Dimension of Swagman # P318 Replacement Wheel Hoops for XTC2 Bike Rack
    The # P318 replacement wheel hoop width accommodates a tire that is up to 2-1/2 inches thick, almost identical to the 2-9/16 inch figure you mentioned. In order to comfortably accommodate a 2-1/2 inch wide tire, the inside distance between the bars would need to be a 16th or two larger than 2-1/2 inches. The hoops are designed to mount on cross members that are about 1-1/8 inches square. I've linked you to a product description video featuring the wheel hoop.

  • Swagman Wheel Hoop Recommendation for Fat Bike Tires up to 3-1/2 inches in Width
    What you can do is switch the wheel cradles of your Swagman bike rack for the wheel cradles of the XC and you would have cradles that can handle tire widths of up to 3-1/2 inches. For that you would want the Replacement Wheel Hoop # P189 sold individually.

  • Replacement Wheel Hoop for a Swagman XC2 Platform Bike Rack
    The Replacement hoops, part # P318 you mentioned are only designed for the XTC series of bike racks. Instead, you'll want part # P189 for the XC series of racks, which are shaped just a little differently. This hoop will work in any of the 4 positions.

  • How do the Replacement Rubber Straps for the Swagman XTC Bike Rack Install
    If you check out the picture of the wheel hoops part # P318 that I attached you will see how the straps # P308 attach to them.

  • Are Swagman Wheel Holders Interchangeable Between the XTC and XC
    I spoke with my contact at Swagman about using the # P189 in place of the # P318. He said there would be no problem with the # P189 fitting on the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack. The support bar is the same size on both of these racks. I think the reason your wheel holders may not be holding up is because your recumbent bike is heavier than the weight capacity of your bike rack. Another option you could try is the Hollywood Racks Replacement Wheel Holder for the left side # HRSPRWHL and right...

  • Longer Wheel Hoop for Swagman XC Bike Rack
    It appears you are looking at the Replacement Wheel Hoop, Knob and Bolt for Swagman XC 2 Bike Carrier # P189. It is only designed to fit a small portion of the tire simply creating the base and then the bike rack hook gives you the downward force holding the bike in place on the Swagman XC # S64650. If you want a different style you can use the Replacement Wheel Hoops for Swagman XTC Series Bike Carriers # P318.

  • Can Wheel Hoops of the Swagman XC be Upgraded to XTC Hoops
    According to our contacts at Swagman, the upgraded wheel hoops found on the XTC2 bike rack, part # S64670 are compatible with their XC bike rack, part # S64650. The part # P318 you referenced includes a right and left hand hoop. You would need two sets for a 2 bike rack.

  • Are Wheel Hoops From Swagman S64650 XC Bike Rack Interchangeable With Swagman S64670 XTC
    According to Swagman, the wheel hoops from your Swagman XTC # S64670 could be used on a Swagman XC # S64650. I will say that the hoops on the XTC are much more sturdy, and I'd recommend staying with those if at all possible. If the existing XTC hoops are damaged or missing, they are available as a replacement part, # P318. .

  • Can I Carry A Tandem Bicycle With The Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80501
    I do have a solution to carry your tandem bicycle, but using the Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, part # S80501, to do so is not recommended. I contacted our representative at Swagman and she informed me that it is not recommended to carry a tandem bicycle on the Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, part # S80500. The reason it is not recommended is because of the length of the bike and how skinny and how close the arms of the bike rack are. A possible solution to carry your tandem bicycle would...

  • Using Hitch Mount Recumbent Bike Rack on an RV
    Many hitch mount bike racks are not confirmed to be used behind an RV because of all the additional movement you will get. For that reason there are bike racks specifically designed for RV use. The Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers # S64663 could be a solution for you. It is designed for bikes with a max wheelbase of 52 inches and not for recumbent bikes like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450Z-R you referenced. However, I verified with Swagman...

  • Replacement Wheel Hoops for Swagman XTC2 and Hollywood Rack HR1000
    Sounds like you are trying to determine if a wheel hoop from a Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part S64670 would fit on a Hollywood Rack like part # HR1000Z. I have tested this before and found that the two different racks use different diameter support beams so they aren't interchangeable. For replacement wheel hoops for the Swagman you would want the part # P318. For Hollywood Racks you would want the part # HRSPRWHL and # HRSPRWHL .

  • Will This Bike Rack Work with My Tandem Bicycle on RV Motor Home Bumper
    If your RV or Motorhome bumper is wider than the tandem bicycle then the Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, part # S80605, will work. If you do not already have something to secure your bikes to part # S80605, then you may need the 10 foot Cable Lock, part # e98891. You will need to check with the RV manufacturer to see how much weight the bumper is rated to hold. You will need to calculate the weight of the bike rack plus the weight of the tandem bicycle.

  • Can Swagman XC Towing Bike Rack be Used with XTC Wheel Hoops
    Yes, you can put the XTC wheel hoops, # P318, on the XC model rack, # S64664. There is a version of this rack that has this set up already, # S64650-EXT, which you mentioned, but it is not a towing bike rack. With the XTC wheel hoops mounted the maximum wheel base accepted is 68 inches. Using the multipurpose ball mount # D210, with extended rack # S64650-EXT, would work but in addition to costing more it would also make the rack closer to the trailer than the towing rack which would decrease...

  • How to Select Correct Replacement Wheel Hoops
    It may be possible to replace the wheel cradles of your TransIT Flatbed 4DLX though we do not carry that brand so you will need to know how the cradles go on the rack and I wasn't able to tell from my research exactly how the cradle went on this rack. If they slide on and are square you may be able to use the 1-1/4" Replacement Wheel Loop - SportRack # 05004700000 (Right Side) or # 05004800000 (Left Side), or if they are 1-3/16" there are the Replacement Wheel Hoops # P318.
