Universal Tire MountThe tire mount is constructed of .188 thick steel. Built in adjust ability for the exact backspacing of your wheel.
Wheel studs, lug nuts*, and mounting hardware included.
Jeep Patterns (5 Lug)
Truck Patterns (6 and 8 Lug)
*Supplied with 1/2-20 wheel studs and acorn lug nuts (uses 13/16" socket.) Depending on wheel, different lug nuts may need to be sourced. For factory Toyota wheels, use Gorilla Automotive 72187 short shank lug nuts.
The tire mounts are designed for a wheel mount surface to tire sidewall distance of 5 - 8" (this should not be confused with backspacing, the tire sidewall will add extra width to your backspacing number.) The tire needs to be adjusted tightly against the carrier or surface once installed to help stop vibrations from fatiguing the tire mount, carrier, rack, or bumper. If your tire does not sit flat against your mounting surface when installed please contact us.
