Hornet Outdoors Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mounts are the solution for carrying a spare tire for your ATV or UTV without taking up any valuable rack or bed space.
The U-4048 mounts the wheel vertically with increased clearance from the mount post to accommodate wheels with deeper inset than the standard U-4047 Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mount
Unlike trucks and SUVs, ATV and UTV receiver hitches are commonly located beneath the vehicle. The unique angled lower section of our Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mount extends the receiver hitch beyond the rear of the vehicle and provides plenty of ground clearance in rough terrain.
The mount post attaches to the lower section with an industry standard 5/8" hitch pin, allowing the mount post and mounted spare to be removed and reinstalled in seconds for easy UTV tailgate use and bed access.
This Spare Tire Mount is proudly made in the USA with American steel and is compatible with any standard 2" receiver hitch.
The included hitch pin attaches the mount post to the lower section. A second 5/8" hitch pin is required to attach the Spare Tire Mount to your vehicle and can be purchased at a discounted price as an optional add-on.
The included U-4045 Hitch Stabilizer can optionally be installed to eliminate wobble between the lower section and the mount post but prevents toolless removal and reinstallation of the mount post. A second Stabilizer to eliminate play between the lower section and the vehicle receiver hitch can be purchased at a discounted price as an optional add-on. Additional details on the Hornet Outdoors U-4045 Hitch Stabilizer can be found [here].
The included 3/8" fasteners will accommodate most wheels, but some wheels may require the separate purchase of longer or different size lug bolts that are available as a drop-down option.
