One thing that every Jeep owner knows is that it is important to have at least one spare tire at all times. It doesn’t matter if you go off road a lot or if you never leave the asphalt, you need to have a spare tire. Nothing is more embarrassing than sitting on the side of the road waiting for help when you have a flat tire. It can also be dangerous, because it’s sometimes hard to get all the way out of traffic and find a spot where you can easily and safely check your tire.
If you go off road a lot, then you can easily run into a flat tire. Sharp rocks or even sticks can punch holes in a tire, leaving you stranded in the woods or mountains. Some of the most perfect places for going off road do not have cell phone coverage, so you can end up having to hike miles to find help. Other times you might be able to call for help but will have to wait for hours before any kind of help arrives.
It’s better to always have an extra tire with you. The Olympic 4X4 products tire swing for 76-06 Jeep CJ-5, CJ-7, Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited with rock rear bumper is perfect for holding that extra tire. The 700 will easily bolt onto 500 series rock rear bumpers. You can easily bolt the 701 onto the 153 A/T Slider Rear Bumper.
You can carry a 40″ tire. It is recommended to carry at most a 33×12.50 because of the lightweight tailgates on most Jeeps. You’ll have to remove the tire carrier from the Wrangler tailgate and then bolt it onto the Tire Swing. Or you can install the Olympic 707 Tire Mount. If you want to carry more, then you have the option of using the Olympic 904 or 905 Sierra Rack. This is a clean design that is in one piece with heavy wall 2 1/2″ round steel tubing.
