Wilco Offroad Hitchgate Solo Spare Tire Carrier (High Clearance) - UHG33187

universal fit logo



When it comes to strength and weight, the Hitchgate Solo packs a powerful punch. With the same tow rating as its bigger siblings and the capacity to carry a 35-inch tire (on a mid-sized truck), the Solo is ready for whatever the adventure calls for. The Hitchgate Solo was designed to go lean and low on the next adventure while still being prepared. The Hitchgate Solo’s reduced weight is perfect for those looking to carry a 35-inch (on a mid-size vehicle) or smaller spare tire, and Rotopax fuel cans.
Not only is weight reduced, but so is the overall height of the horizontal support arm which sits 4-inches lower than a Hitchgate Classic or MAX. By relocating the truck mount at the *same level* as the vehicle’s receiver hitch, the Solo is uniquely designed to accommodate vehicles that have a tight clearance between the rear hatch/door and the receiver (Ex: Sprinter, Renegade, Tahoe, Grand Cherokee). The Hitchgate Solo is also a phenomenal candidate for Subaru and any vehicle where every pound counts.
The Hitchgate Solo spare tire carrier universally fits on almost all vehicles with a Class III/2-inch hitch receiver. This swing-away, spare tire carrier mounts to any 2-inch, Class III hitch receiver and is perfect for SUVs, Jeeps, vans and pickups. This tough tire carrier secures up to a 35-inch spare tire (on mid-sized vehicles) while maintaining ground clearance with minimal change in departure angles when driving off-road. Release a single latch pin and it opens wide for full access to the vehicle’s cargo space. NOTE: Solo sits level with vehicles receiver hitch.
The Hitchgate Solo line is tow-rated at 7,500 lbs (max trailer weight) and 750 lbs (tongue weight). *These limits may be more than your vehicle’s capacity. ALWAYS stay within the limits of your vehicles tow/tongue ratings)* The tire carrier is rated for 150lbs of total weight. If your tire and wheel reach that limit, you won’t be able to carry any fuel or tools…look towards the Hitchgate Classic or Max for more capacity.

Q: Is there a locking mechanism to prevent the tire from being stolen while the vehicle is left unattended? Answer this question

A: Not included, but they are available at an auto parts store.

Answered by Frank on 05/30/2022

A: There is no locking mechanism, your wheel just bolts onto the supplied bolts. You would need to add your own locking device.
