Hornet Outdoors Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mounts aren't just for ATVs and UTVs. This heavy duty Spare Tire Mount will handle big truck and SUV tires with ease.
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]). For added convenience, consider the U-4100S Swing-Away Spare Tire Mount (available [here]) which allows the Spare Tire Mount Post to pivot away from your vehicle for tailgate or rear door access.
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.
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 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.
