      Comments about Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier:

      I bought this for my wife's 12 JK. She has a pretty heavy wheel and tire combo (120lb). The stock carrier wasn't up to the task of supporting the weight. This carrier pulls the tire closer to the body and helps keep the tire from shaking up and down. Been pretty pleased with it so far. My only issue was that the instructions in the box were incomplete. I had to go to the smittybilt site to get the full direction.

          Comments about Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier:

          I wasn't positive this was the idea way to go for my 35" spare. But since I didn't want a swing out tire carrier I thought I would give it a try. After the install, which was very easy and only reason for 2 stars, I noticed it looked like it would damage the 3 lug nut holes in my wheel where the bracket tightened down on the wheel. And it did. I called Smittybilt to be told some guys find rubber pieces to use to protect the wheels. So when I asked if it was designed to be that way I was told YES! I asked what I need to go get and was told I will have to go to hardware store and look for things to experment with. Really? That is tech support? How hard would it be for a company as large as Smittybilt to design and include 3 rubber bushings to protect the wheel? Or at very minimum put a warning in the install instructions that this could happen. I will have to think real hard before I buy another Smittybilt product.

              Comments about Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier:

              This carrier is well priced, easy to install, and does what it needs too. I dont consider it a long term solution however. The entire weight of the spare and the carrier is being held by the tailgate. It does carry the tire very close to the tailgate and there are no rattles. I dont see any issues with it in the next year or two.

                  Colby,
                  As long as you have an aftermarket wheel on the Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier then the I-RACK will work. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
                  Thanks!

              • Q:

                I am currently debating between this carrier and a full bumper with integrated carrier. I really want to go this route because it allows the tire to remain part of the tailgate (ie, not having to re-wire the 3rd brake light and having a single swing open action). My concern is mounting my 35" tire and rim, I really want to be able to use the center cap to complete the "look" of the rear spare. I see there is a small bar used to tighten the rim on the mount, this appears to prevent the use of a center cap. Do you happen to know how long that bar is, or if there is another way to secure the wheel to this carrier and still be able to use a center cap on the rim?

                  Unfortunately with the Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier you will not be able to use your center cap with the spare tire as the bar you see mounts through where your center cap is located. If you want to keep your center cap you will need to go to a full bumper with integrated tire carrier. Let us know if you have any further questions, thanks.
