This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Driving a pickup can make many things in your life more convenient — until you have a flat, that is. Most trucks keep their spares under the vehicle, which frees up space in the back but exposes it to mud, road grime, and other debris. These mounts can be installed in the bed, so the tire is easier to get to when necessary, eliminating the need for you to crawl on the ground in the rain. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best truck bed spare tire mount on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 21, 2019:

The two biggest questions users should ask themselves before investing in one of these options are where and how they want the spare attached. For example, if you're not willing to drill a hole in your frame, something like the selection from International Resources should work nicely, although it necessarily won't be as sturdy as bolted-on models. Also, a mount that holds the tire upright on the side of the bed will free up more space than one that keeps it cinched to the floor, but it may also make it slightly more difficult to access when needed.
