Ultra-Tow Spare Tire Carrier - With Tire Locking Bracket
Ultra-Tow Spare Tire Carrier
Great price!!! But the holes for the 5 lug on 4 1/2 are alittle bit off. You have to spend time making one hole larger so you can offset the stud to bolt the spare tire on

Trailer Tire Mount
Very nice Spare tire mount, locks onto most frames very good. This unit holds a tire very tight, and has no chance of rolling on the frame, ( like my other one did) Thanks for a unit that works !

Measure your hole pattern
Make sure you measure the width of your spares holes. Instruction states it will work with 4 or 5 lug wheels. I have a 5 lug and the holes on the bracket were not wide enough. I had to drill a new hole on the bracket to make it work. Product is well built. I did not mount it on the tounge, I side mounted it drilling 4 holes in my trailer.If your spare will fit it's worth the money.

Product seems to be a great product. I wish they would put the bolt pattern on the outside of the box. The outside says 4-5 hole rims. Perfect, but you have to purchase and get it home to find out that it will not fit a 5 hole rim with a 5.5 pattern!

Missing one of the bolts - but well made
The mount is sturdy and well made. Mine didn't have instructions and was missing a bolt. I didn't need the instructions, and I bought shorter bolts anyway - but that knocked it from 5 to 4 stars. I mounted my 13 inch spare horizontally on a brace for the A-Frame tongue. It holds it securely, looks nice, and keeps it below the pipe rail tops so it doesn't block anything. If you want to use the threaded lock tabs - then they do work somewhat. They lock the wheel to the bracket - but the bracket can just be unbolted from the trailer frame. Duh. You could easily secure the bracket to the trailer by welding or soldering across the threads of the mounting bolts to block them, I don't lock the wheels to the trailer, and if someone is going to steal a wheel then I'd prefer they steal my spare - so I'm not going to use them. If you are really concerned about your spare being stolen - then I would lock it to the frame with a U lock,

Ultra Tow Carrier - Great Price for Great Product!
After reading some reviews on here about this tire carrier, I decided to give it a shot even though some people are claiming it is hard to install or doesn't work properly. After purchasing this I took it home and installed it on my pop up camper. The directions were clear as a bell and even if they weren't this is a very simple no brainer product to install. Everything installed the way it should with ease and yes that does include the theft deterrent system. The install took about 5-10 minutes to install. The metal tabs for the locking device thread onto the bolts and then when you put your own lock it, it would be pretty hard to steal unless you carry a blow torch or some heavy duty bolt cutters around with you. All in all this is a great tire carrier that does exactly what it claims and definitely won't break the bank. So, if you're looking for an inexpensive carrier that is easy to install, don't look any further than this one.
