Re: Tyre Carrier


Hi Guys,

It was only a matter of time before someone designed a solution for the wheel carrier in the exy and this is it:

Image

This looks like a stainless steel bumper addition with a swinging spare wheel carrier and which also doubles-up as rear bar protector (for those hard core off-roaders) emoticon

Not a bad design and looks quite sharp, but I'd be worried about rear view visibility when driving with this thing on, but I guess for a long trip, it'll be the perfect solution. The towbar can still be used and the towball will come-out from between the stainless steel tubed of the carrier.

Yeah, the spare does sit up a bit high dosnt it.

Would have been better if they got it lower

I think they have it tilted to reduce pressure on the cover, but if the box is strong and secure enough, I can't see a reason they couldn't make it straight.

Re: Tyre Carrier


There is a company in america that do a similar thing called a tiregate which uses your existing towbar hitch, so it's easily removed when not needed and you can also get a jerrycan attachment. Only problem i could really see is it makes the towbar stick out that little bit more for offroad work.http://www.tiregate.com

Good find Rob. This is very similar to the towbar attachement design Phil (xtrailing) showed us on the previous page of this thread.

Where did you get that from Jalal??

They've got twins!

The only other problem is the need to move your number plate to the bumper bar.

Re: Tyre Carrier


I wonder if it'll be legal to use the bike rack plates with this wheel carrier, rather than having to relocate the number plates.

Awesome design indeed and very easy to fit and remove it seems. The killer is gonna be shipping this thing from the US to Australia emoticon
