Exterior spare tire carrier

Asked by Apr 25, 2016 at 09:46 PM about the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT Hatchback

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2014 Chevy Sonic hatchback. It's great, but it's very small. I'm going on a 9 month long "road trip," and there's absolutely no way my spare tires (2 of them) will fit inside anywhere. And the top will be loaded too, so I need to attach it to the back of the car somehow.

I know this is weird, but I want the carrier that's made for jeeps. It's mounted to the bumper, and there's a swing-door style tire carrier. You can swing the tire out away from the back, and it allows you to then open the back if you need to. It's perfect.

Please tell me there's a way I can do that to my sonic! Thank you for reading.

Put a trailer hitch on your car and buy a cheap spare tire holder to go in it. Here's a link to the tire holder. U-haul could slap a hitch on your car for you. http://www.wilcooffroad.com/shop/hitchgate/ Hope that helps, Trevor

One more thing. My car is "supposed to have a class 1 hitch receiver, and this mount is perfect, but it says: "Requires Class III hitch with 2-inch receiver and 500 lb minimum tongue weight" Of course, the class 1 is way under that. It's also a 1 1/4 inch instead of 2 inch. I can get the 1 1/4inch to 2inch adapter, but is the weight issue okay?

Why do you need 2 spare tires? Are the current tires worn? I would think getting a set of new tires would be cheaper in the long run.
