Will Installing Draw-Tite # 75684 on 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe Prevent Lowering of Spare Tire

Question:

Hello - Id like to know if this hitch will interfere with lowering of the spare tire? I have a 2010 Santa Fe - SE Thanks

Expert Reply:

As you can see in the provided photo, installing the Draw-Tite Class III receiver on your 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe will somewhat obstruct the spare tire.

You will still be able to deploy the spare tire if while lowering it, you push the edge of the tire toward the front of the vehicle until it clears the hitch.

The hitch on my wifes van is obstructed in exactly the same manner, and I can tell you from experience that getting the spare lowered is no big deal.

If you were planning on using the hitch for towing purposes, you might also need the following:

Ball mount, part # 2923
Trailer wiring harness, part # 118415 or # 118258 if your Santa Fe is equipped with the tow package
1-7/8 inch trailer ball, part # 19260
2 inch trailer ball, part # 19247
Pin and clip, part # PC3
Locking hitch pin, # 40107
