We spent 28 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Just as you do for your vehicle, you should also keep a spare tire on hand for your trailer any time you are towing it. If you are like most people, you'd rather not toss it in your truck bed or the back of your SUV, so that's where these mounts come in handy. They attach quickly to your trailer's frame and keep that extra wheel close, but conveniently out of the way when not needed. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best spare tire mount for trailers on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 01, 2019:

Spare tire mounts for your trailer are intended to do one thing, keep your wheel securely in place when not needed, so this was our foremost priority when selecting models. Anything that was potentially not strong enough to do that was immediately discounted. After that we wanted to include items that offered extra convenience, like the capability to be locked to prevent tire theft or the versatility to allow for horizontal and vertical mounting.
