The perfect spare tire mount for a Truck or RV where you need a heavy duty high quality tire mount. Features a full round wheel mount that can accommodate almost any size wheel and bolt pattern.
Available in either straight or curved lower section that helps negate ground hang-up
The U-4800 mounts the wheel vertically with increased clearance from the mount post to accommodate wheels with deeper inset than the standard U-4100 Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mount (available [here]).

The mount post attaches to the lower section with an industry standard 5/8" hitch pin, allowing the mount post and mounted spare to be removed and reinstalled in seconds for easy tailgate or rear door access.
This Spare Tire Mount is proudly made in the USA with American steel and is compatible with any standard 2" receiver hitch. All Welded and Powder Coated for durability.
Available in either a Straight Lower Component or Curved Lower Component for added ground clearance. (Curved lower $20 additional). Select the Lower Component at Checkout.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The U-4800 is adjustable between 3", 6", and 9" of horizontal clearance between the vehicle's receiver hitch pin hole and the mount post. Please measure your vehicle to insure this is sufficient to clear the rear of the vehicle and consult the image with detailed dimensions if necessary.
The maximum tire/wheel weight capacity of this mount is 75 lbs under normal highway travel. If traveling in off road rough terrain lower weight wheel/tire combination may be required.
