Hornet Outdoors Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mounts are the solution for carrying a spare tire for your ATV or UTV without taking up any valuable rack or bed space.
The U-4047 mounts the wheel on a low-profile angled bracket to minimize protrusion from your vehicle. Wheels with deep inset may require the longer mounting bracket of the U-4048 Spare Tire Mount (available [here]).
Unlike trucks and SUVs, ATV and UTV receiver hitches are commonly located beneath the vehicle. The unique angled lower section of our Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mount extends the receiver hitch beyond the rear of the vehicle and provides plenty of ground clearance in rough terrain.

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 UTV tailgate use and bed access.
This Spare Tire Mount is proudly made in the USA with American steel and is compatible with any standard 2" receiver hitch. A 1-1/4" receiver hitch compatible U-4063 Spare Tire Mount with 1-1/4" lower section is available [here].
If you want to use the Hornet U-4047 SpareTire Mount and still retain the use of your hitch, you can purchase our Piggyback Dual Hitch U-4052. The link to that product is here and photo of it in use below.
The UI-4047 comes in 2 available lengths. Select from either a 17” lower component or 19”. You will measure the distance from your receiver hitch pin to the back of your bumper or bed to get the correct length.
Powder Coated flat black for a durable, corrosion-resistant finish.

The included hitch pin attaches the mount post to the lower section. A second 5/8" hitch pin is required to attach the Spare Tire Mount to your vehicle and can be purchased at a discounted price as an optional add-on.
For added convenience, consider the U-4047S Swing-Away Spare Tire Mount (available [here]) or U-4048S Swing-Away Spare Tire Mount for deep inset wheels (available [here]), which allow the Spare Tire Mount Post to pivot away from the bed of your UTV for easy tailgate access.
The included U-4045 Hitch Stabilizer can optionally be installed to eliminate wobble between the lower section and the mount post but prevents toolless removal and reinstallation of the mount post. A second Stabilizer to eliminate play between the lower section and the vehicle receiver hitch can be purchased at a discounted price as an optional add-on. Additional details on the Hornet Outdoors U-4045 Hitch Stabilizer can be found [here].
The included 3/8" fasteners will accommodate most wheels, but some wheels may require the separate purchase of longer bolts.
