Big trucks deserve booming exhaust systems and towering lift kits—and not just because it’s fun to buzz Smart cars and give their owners minor heart attacks. Unfortunately, most dual exhaust systems and massive suspension lifts make you drop your spare, and driving without a backup tire is a surefire recipe for getting a flat. Avoid falling victim to Murphy’s Law by relocating your extra wheel into your payload with the Go Industries Spare Tire Mount.
The deceptively simple Go Industries Truck Bed Tire Mount is engineered for one thing, and one thing only: to securely hold your spare in the back of your truck. For maximum structural strength, it’s built from 12-gauge steel and finished with a sleek black paint. To keep sticky-fingered thieves off your tire, it also accepts padlocks and combination locks.
As versatile as it is strong, your Go Industries Truck Bed Tire Mount can be installed on either side of your payload. Or, if you’re heading out on an epic off-road adventure and need multiple backup wheels, you can always add extra Go Industries truck bed spare tire carriers. Plus, they’re covered by a 3-year warranty on workmanship and 6-month finish warranty.

Outstanding unit, used lag bolts instead of the bolts supplied. You might need to cut the top of the mount for a flush fit. Make sure prior to bolting you mount the tire before you bolt it in to ensure the proper mounting location.

The design is ok, a little flimsy for a 16 inch tire. We had to cut and weld the tire support. It was not deep enough from the mount to the spare tire lung nut holes. We had to buy hex head bolts because the type supplied required a big screwdriver and that made installation difficult. We also replaced the bolt size... 3/16 is not a good size to hold the tire mount on. The Bracket behind the tire mount was to wide and we had to cut it down to fit up into the lip of the rail box.

This was the only side mount I could find for my Ford. It is well made and adaptable to my use. Only issue I find is the mount mechanism is designed for thinner steel wheels. If you have aluminum wheels it does not extend far enough through the wheel for the lock mechanism. I solved it by having an extension welded on.

Looks great in my pick-up bed. Easy to install. Holds the spare tire straight up & down. No rattle or lateral tire movement. Neighbor commented he was going to order one for his truck. I am thinking of purchasing another for a second tire mount.

It is tall enough for my full size spare BUT it doesnt come out far enough away from the bedside for my tires. I did find a way to rig it up BUT once installed I was VERY disappointed not only did my spare NOT fit the metal bowed with the weight of my spare. It saddens me that they dont make products like they used to :( Pass up this product unless your good at welding! It needs lots more support metal & a few adjustments.
