From high-speed road bikes to ocean kayaks, your roof rack is the perfect platform for hauling your toys.

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.

Used it for the first time the other day and it did exactly what it was supposed to, seems well made, easy to use and comes with nice carry bag, only downfall was where it rested on tire, 20" tire it rest on outer edge of rim, might have to put something behind so not to scratch rim, other than that love it!

quite nice, but mods needed

On my Dodge dually with stock tire size, the step isn't level with the inmost setting on rear tire. So I drilled another hole 3/4" away from spring hole to move clip to the new holes (snug tire hug) and that improved it greatly. However, with lowest step setting on the front tire, the step hits the extended chrome wheel cap, causing scatches...and possible denting even with felt adhesive applied. The design needs above mod, plus a cut-away on step to allow wheelcap clearance on 1 tons.

I have a Chevy 1 Ton Silverado and this thing makes it very easy to reach the side of the truck that has a commercial topper on it. Invaluable to help load ladders on top. Just what I was looking for.

Research and development?

I had to change the location of the pins going both ways for it to fit over my truck wheel. when I folded it up it wouldn't fit in the bag. I guess they thought everybody drove a sub compact car. Quality control? The brackets that are on the step portion were not welded on 90 degrees to the plane of the step, therefore I had to put the step in a bench vise to straighten the brackets. It was painted black, just like the picture[they got that part right].

Should have got this step a long time ago

I have used it twice now and wish I had known about it a long time ago. Very easy and quick to set up and makes getting in the back of truck way easier.
