The 7 Best Spare Tire Bike Racks
This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Traditional bike racks often won't fit SUVs and other vehicles that have an extra wheel mounted on the back. Rather than deal with trying to lift a large and unwieldy bicycle onto a roof rack, you can get one of these handy models. They quickly slip onto your spare tire and, depending on the type, can accommodate two or three cycles. Many also have security features to keep your cargo safe.

The most important thing for a bike rack, no matter whether it is mounted on a spare tire or directly on the vehicle, is that it be capable of holding your bicycles securely in place as your drive. For that reason, we discounted any models that didn't seem stable or which we felt could potentially allow a bike to slip off in some manner. After that, we did our best to include options in a variety of styles and prices.
