In the past, with an SUV you were limited to roof rack or hitch mount bike carriers, but now, with the Thule Spare Me Spare Tire Bike Rack, if you've got a rear-mounted spare tire, you can carry bikes there. The Spare Me mounts to the same studs your spare tire mounts to, with the included adapter plate. The rest of the carrier attaches to the adapter plate with one knob, so it can be easily installed when needed and removed and stored when it's not.
The Spare Me offers the same safe and secure bike transport that all Thule carriers are known for. It has T3™ Cradles that gently support your bikes' frames and anti-sway cages that attach to the cradles and vertical downtubes to prevent movement and bike-to-bike contact that could cause damage en route. The narrow rack arms enable the Spare Me to carry a wide range of bike sizes and styles. The bikes can be locked to the carrier with the included locking cable and the carrier can be locked to the vehicle with the locking knob.
The arms on the Spare me can be lowered when not in use to create room for parking and garaging. The Spare Me Spare Tire Bike Rack comes with everything required for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.158.95Brand: Thule Part Number: 963PRO UPC: 091021612204

I received my bike rack ahead of schedule and in perfect condition. Directions were easy to follow. This is my first bike rack, so I didnâ€™t know that for a girlâ€™s boardwalk type bike you need a separate frame adapter, so the bike will rest nicely on the rack. I wish the sales rep on the phone would have suggested this, but I ordered one, and it arrived soon enough. The other item I wish I had purchased when ordering the rack is the locking trailer hitch lock. This allows you to lock the rack when traveling, so thieves canâ€™t steal your rack and bikes! The bike rack comes with a typical screw that is attached and removed with a wrench. The screw is tightened through the hitch on my Jeep, through the threaded adapter, and goes about half way through. The locking one goes all the way through, which in my mind made it feel more secure. I ordered the lock, and it works nicely. I have a two-inch hitch, so I had to use the adapter that comes with the rack. It is held on with one small screw. This was concerning to me, but I was assured by the sales rep that it is more than enough to hold the rack securely to my hitch. The rack folds as advertised, so you can open the rear hatch on your vehicle. The rack seems heavy duty, and the bikes ride nicely. This company follows up with emails and is very thorough. I will purchase from them in the future.Was this review helpful for you?

The product is not easy to install. If you have physical strength, it's okay. If not, this is not the rack for you. It seems sturdy, but I was disappointed when one of the bumpers on the rack fell off the second time I used it.Was this review helpful for you?

Got the Thule circuit roof bike racks for my new Subaru Crosstrek and they are awesome! Easy to use as is all Thule equipment, and they work with the crossbars that were factory installed on my car just perfectly! Bikes go everywhere with me!Was this review helpful for you?

Once the rack is installed, it holds bikes securely in place and makes theft difficult. I had some problems installing the rack the first time and the instructions were of marginal help. I could not attach the trunk hooks without opening the trunk, once I attached the hooks it was just a matter of adjusting the cables to achieve the proper fit. The rack's size and weight make it difficult to handle while installing. I did not have any problems with trunk dents reported by some users. Two light weight folks could install it easily. Despite the initial installation problems, I recommend this bike rack for anyone that cannot use the trailer hitch version.Was this review helpful for you?

Fits great on my 2007 FJ Cruiser. Love the improvements from the original rack; especially the sway bar and locking device. Very easy to install with clear instructions. Very pleased.Was this review helpful for you?

I was amazed at the ease of installation of this product. I took my time and read the directions carefully. When I tested it out with my bike, it seemed secure. It comes with a bike stabilizer and a strap for extra securing of the bike. The only thing, I wish it had was a strap to keep the front wheel of the bike from moving. But I secured it with a bungee cord that I provided. Good value for the money.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
