Spare Tire Carrier for an 8 Inch Trailer Wheel


The spare tire that I would like to carry with this item is a Carlisle 18.5 x 8.5-8 If I am reading your specs correctly, you recommend this item for up to 15inch tires... If that is so, this item wont work for me....? Am I reading this correctly, and if so, do you have another item that you would recommend?


Expert Reply:

The 18.5 x 8.5-8 tire that you have should be 18.5 inches tall, 8-1/2 inches wide, and on an 8 inch wheel. The 15 inch mentioned for the Fulton spare tire carrier # FSTC1000301 is in reference to the wheel size. To fit the Fulton spare tire carrier the wheel would have to be at least a 10 inch so your 8 inch will not fit.

Carrier # DL22144 does list 8 inches tries/wheels as a fit so you may want to consider it as an option.
