For all of you with an aftermarket spare tire carrier, do you have a bike rack that works with it? Or fits around it? What model do you have? How many bikes do you carry on it?

Hi mike.
I have one but use a hitch extender to clear the tire, Yakima 4 bike. So far works great. I can send a pic tomorrow.

Tony, thanks for the info. A pic of that setup would be great!

Which hitch extender did you get for the rack?

I'd have to double check, but I think draw tite. Its rated for 5k, 500lb tongue weight so strong. Here's a pic., rack is solid.Image

It's an older hefty..and the rack isn't as far from the tire as it looks in the pic..only way I found to mount it unless you remove the tire every time

Is there sagging when all 4 bikes are on the rack?

No direct experience, but I've seen Jeeps with these around here

Yeah, the local bike shop had one of those by Thule. I'm thinking about it. I could put my bike and my wife's bike on it, and the kids smaller bikes in the truck.

But at some point, I'd need that bigger 4-bike rack like Tony has.
