    I use a normal rack with an extra 50mm PVC for the extra long thru axle, then just a lashing strap from hardware store for the big rear tire

    I already had Yakima HighRollers, the only thing I had to add was a strap to hold the rear tire on. HuDu and Knard tires on Marge Lites. It works really well, but I don't think it would work for 5" tires.

    I have 2 of the Rockymounts BrassKnuckles and I love 'em. You'll need their Fatty adapter which extends the wheel straps and gives you a larger tire stop. It's the best rooftop rack I've owned.
