The SpareTime Spare Tire Bike Rack includes a universal mounting plate that fits most lug patterns and comes with short, medium, and long “tongues" to accommodate tire sizes from a skinny P195 up to a fat 12.5", and different wheel offsets. Once the proper tongue is attached the mounting plate and the spare tire can be installed.
