Side Mount Tire Carrier
This is the worst product I ever purchased!!! It does not fit right on my trailer(even though the description say it fits 3" frames). If you do purchase make sure you have lots of wood for shims. The small u-bolt will not fit over the frame and the large u-bolt is to big so you have to shim it. The spare is a nightmare to get on and, off of the carrier. When I go away I have to make sure I pack a tool bag just for the spare tire carrier. PLEASE FISH GODS DON'T LET ME GET A FLAT!!!

worth the money
Does the job for me, although it was missing 4 ubolt nuts. had to run to the store, not a happy camper for that. Have a Tracker trailer and it fit OK. At first I thought the ubolts werent threaded far enough, but then realized I just had to reverse the inside brackets. I might use the die grinder and take off the extra threads so I dont slam my leg into one of those ubolts. I was going to paint it to match the trailer, but you dont see it when the boat is on.

Worked very nice on my "easy loader" boat trailer with a 3''x 3" tongue. Took about 20 min, took longer to find wrenches than to install. Looks good, even without being painted. Only problem was one of the bolts that was supplied would not fit when attaching spare tire.I had one that would fit,so was not really a problem but would be nice to have this problem fixed.

The side mount tire carrier fitted the trailer frames without any problems. The tires to my boat are five lug holes. The offset hole and the top hole lined up to, two of the wheel lug holes. However the bolt supplies would not go into the offset hole. The brace need to be cut back a little for the bolt to go into the hole. I had to purchase a different bolt.
