If you're like most people, you probably don't think about your spare wheel until you need it. That's where a spare wheel carrier comes in handy but not all vehicles come with factory tyre carriers to carry spares. You can get one installed on your vehicle, they position the spare tyre in a way that makes it easy to access, no matter where your car is parked. So if you're looking for greater versatility and vehicle access then a spare wheel carrier is the perfect solution for you!
There are many different types of spare wheel carriers on the market, so it's important to choose one that best suits your needs. For example, if you're planning on doing any off-roading, then you'll want a carrier that can handle larger tyres. Or if you're mostly driving in the city, then a smaller carrier might be all you need. Whatever your needs, there's a spare wheel carrier out there that's perfect for you!
The most common type of carrier, standard carriers are designed to fit a wide range of vehicles. They're easy to install and accommodate various sized tyres.
If you're planning on doing any off-roading, then an off-road carrier is a must. These carriers are designed to handle larger tyre size and provide greater clearance for obstacles.
Installing a rear bar on your vehicle is a great investment to protect your vehicle if you are an offroad enthusiast. If you have a rear bar installed on your vehicle it is a great option to install the spare wheel carrier on the bumper assembly. It provides excellent ground clearance compared to installing a carrier underneath the car and you could avoid unnecessary stress to the back door of your vehicle. You would commonly see a combination of swing out carrier and rear bar which is both efficient and safe.
You will see most vehicles with the spare mounts fitted to the back door which is a great option as the spare is securely stored outside the car. But it could result in unwanted stress to the rear car door.
A great option if you don't like the idea of bulking up your 4WD with the large spare tyres showing outside the vehicle. But choosing this option means, you will have a harder time accessing your spare when you need and the spare wheel located underneath also affects the ground clearance. You can also damage the spare if you go off-roading.
This is one of the best options where your spare is mostly out of sight and secure but it could be hard to get to if you don't like climbing on top of your car when you need the spare.
All these mounting methods have their pros and cons. So one should consider all of them depending on you needs.
