From high-speed road bikes to ocean kayaks, your roof rack is the perfect platform for hauling your toys. But, unless you’re built like Andre the Giant, hoisting your gear aloft is a real pain in the backside—literally. Instead of straining to reach your roof, give yourself a big boost up with the HitchMate TireStep.
The HitchMate TireStep is a fully portable step ladder that fits right over your tire, creating a stable, sturdy platform for stepping up. Break it out when you’re washing your rig, and you’ll be able to reach that bird squeeze on your roof with ease. Set it up when you’re working under the hood, and you won’t kill your back checking your brake fluid. The HitchMate TireStep is always there to save the day.
Constructed from durable steel with an anti-rust black powder coating, this tire step can support up to 400 lbs of weight. The stepping area boasts a skid-free diamond-tread pattern, and its generous 22” x 10” size ensures sure footing. Plus, it folds flat and comes with a storage bag. Limited Lifetime Warranty included.

Well constructed but if you set the step height at any of the positions other than the lowest you can't just fold it and put it in the storage bag it comes with, which defeats the purpose of having the storage bag... If the manufacturer is reading this they should redesign this to have the spring loaded push pins to move the step up and down with more ease and even more range beyond the three positions... Otherwise, it's exceptionally well made and worth the money....

Works exactly as advertised. Some complain about adjustment features. I'll take a little inconvenience for the sturdiness and durability. I'm very satisfied with this product, just wish I bought it sooner!

I need to climb into the bed of my truck during the process of launching my boat. I've tried using a milk crate, step ladder and boat swim ladder but nothing works as well as this tire step. It is very stable and height adjustable, just perfect for that use. The price was very good and the service was great. It shipped the same day I ordered. Just have to keep my fingers out of the way cause it can pinch them while handling.
