    Looking for a special kind of bike rack

    One that works with oversized tires. I have done some searching on the forums, but I haven't found anything helpful yet. I have a 35" spare tire on the back of my truck and most bike racks that I've seen won't work with anything over a 32" tire.

    Has anybody had to deal with this issue and what did you do to work around it?

    Oh, also, I'd like to avoid hitch mount racks if possible, because I don't have a hitch and that's an extra $200 I don't really want to spend if I can help it.

    Thanks!

    I think I've seen something that bolts onto the lugs mounting the spare tire, but I'll have to look.

    OK, try this link, it seems to have several that mount up to the lugs and not over the spare tire:

    From that link, the Yakima Sparetime seems to be the way to go:

    Yup, I bought the Yakima Sparetime rack last night. Every single place I looked had it on "sale" for the same price, but I found that Amazon.com had it much cheaper than everywhere else and even shipped it for free.

    Thanks again for the heads up on this.
