Tusk Spare Tire Carrier with custom cage
I bought this thinking it would be a great way to mount my spare. I didn't notice that you have to loosen the cage down bars for installation. Since I had made my own cage, this presented a problem. After some head scratching, I came up with a way to mount it without changing the mount. I think this is going to be a great product for me, but I just had to do some custom work to install it. So, you can use this product on a custom or aftermarket cage with a little work.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice spare tire mount that doesn't get in the way.
I love this option to mount the spare up high. We use the bed of the RZR all the time for hauling stuff as well as hooking things to the receiver. We didn't want the spare tire off of the back and in the way. The view out of the rear view mirror is just fine. Only thing different is you see the center support bar which isn't that big of a deal. Just another great Tusk product!

Spare tire mount
Installation relatively easy and straight forward. Disappointed to find no nuts to secure tire in kit. So even though installed in the field couldn't care tire. Have to make a trip to town and buy lug nuts to further test and evaluate carrier.

Best way to carry a spare
Made the mistake of buying the Polaris spare tire mount first because of the look but it was always in the way. This mount gets your spare up and out of the way and still looks good

17 turbo rzr can I see out the back of machine or backing up??with this tire carrier
Adam T on Sep 30, 2017
how big a tire will it hold?
Janice S on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This will hold up to a 30" tire.
What is the distance between the two mounting arms that go to the existing roll cage under the roof?
W A on Jan 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This will vary on each machine we sell this for. if you let us know what machine you have we can measure one for you.
Can you still use a rear view mirror with this carrier?
Bobby B on Mar 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use a rear view mirror with this carrier. Depending on the machine you might not be able to see much with the spare tire mounted there.
will this carrier fit a 2016 can am maverick?
michael j on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: To see if this part will fit your machine please enter the make, model, and year into our "Choose a vehicle" drop down boxes found above the product image. If your machine is not listed, we may not carry the right item for your application. If you have a 2017 year model but don't see your machine as an option, please contact a tech via Live Chat or call us at 1-800-336-5437 for assistance.
How much does this weigh?
ERIC B on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This setup weighs 20 pounds.
Does this spare carrier block the rear view mirror at all on a RZR 1000S/900S?
Shannon D on Feb 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends where you position the spare tire holder. You position the spare tire holder up highest position you should have a clear rear view. It also gives you great access to the rear storage. A better spare tire holder I found is one that mounts on the same part of the roll bar but the spare tire is positioned on the side so you can carry two spare tires. One on each side and your view will be completely clear. Just giving you more choices, this a great quality product super easy to install
i notice there isnt one for a 16 rzr 900 4 will this fit the stock cage?
A shopper on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I measured my stock cage and it appears that would have to mount up by roof line and w/ a tire mounted to it it would stick above the roof about 10 to 12". I also measured apx. a 1/4" difference in width (carrier is wider) so you would possibly need to cut and weld carrier shorter to be able to install. Long story short it does not appear to be a direct bolt on application.
do the vertical frame pieces that the spare tire mount attaches to provided with the mount, or do I need to buy separatly and what are the separate parts that work for this?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: the machines that this fits will have those bars. if your machine is listed and does not have those bars then it will mount differently, and will mount a little different. but it will be made for what your machine is stock. thank you for your question.
Will this tire carrier fit a 32x10-14 tire?
Brent B on Dec 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes it will.
I would like to know what is the total length of this carrier from 1/2 of each mounting clamp which is welded to the carrier and do the mounting clamps fit a 1 3/4 inch roll cage this can be for 2014 2015 Polaris RZR 900 or 1000 ?
Terry M on Nov 21, 2017
Will this tire carrier fit with the Polaris rzr plastic roof ?
Keith W on May 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Tusk spare tire holder does not interfere with composite roof, or metal roof. I have an aluminum roof on my Polaris XP 1000. It fit just fine. I love this design. I have a Polaris storage box in the back cargo area and I can still use it. Installation is very easy. Highly recommended.
Can you still see out of rear view mirrow?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on where you locate the mount. I moved mine up to see under it a bit, but which ever direction you go your going to obstruct the view in some way. It didn’t bother me too much as I used my side mirrors as well and felt I have enough view.
Will this work with the poly Tusk rear window installed?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe so, I don't have that exact window but tire sits mostly behind the 2 support bars and window mounts to the vertical bars in front. Some aftermarket roofs can make mounting more difficult and does hinder rear view mirror.
I have a metal roof on my 2016 rzr 900 trail, the tusk spare tire carrier that will fit my rzr is Part #1763940004. This attaches on the roof roll bar at 2 places, will my metal roof fit over those 2 places it attaches to ?
wes h on Mar 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes I believe so.. I have the RZR plastic roof and as long as the metal roof does not cone to far down the back roll cage you should be fine. You can actually adjust up and down we're the tire breach mouts. I have mine even with the roof line so I can access the cooler and tools easily under Neath in the bed.
Will this work with a 30” x 10 Tire? (MotoClaw)
cristobal d on Nov 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have a front tire on mine. I have 30” tires on my RZR but kept a 29” front for spare. I read on a side by side form that the 30s do not fit. I really like the mount. I had a Polaris carrier before and disliked this part
Will this work with a ryfab aluminum storage box?
Wayne H on Jul 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have the Reyfab box without the top rails. I have the spare carrier mounted on a 2017 1000 Rock 'N Trail. I'm using a 6" wide rim holding a 30 X 10-14 Pro-Armor Crawler tire. Rim is 4-2 offset. The lid opens fully with abot 1/8" clearance from the tire.
Would you still be able to mount an S&B Particle separator such that the separator is located so that the air intake is above the roof line?
Craig K on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought both the Tusk Spare Tire Carrier you see here, and also have a S&B particle separator installed on my 2018 RZR. The S&B mounted nicely just below the tire carrier. It gets plenty of air, and I am happy with the final installation of all components. I still have full access to my Polaris cooler mounted in the back, and full use of the back seats.
Has anybody used this carrier with a 32" tire?
JACOB W on Jun 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used it on a 2016 4 seater and it worked fine with a 30 in tire if you are using it on a 2017 or newer you can slide it lower on the roll bar and get enough Clarence
I have heard different opinions. Will this carrier hold a 32 inch pro armor crawler on a Polaris XP Turbo? The description says up to a 30 inch tire, but some others has said a 32 will work. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
Jason K on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Jason it should work I have a 30" tire on mine and there is at least 2" between the tire and the back window. If it is too close on yours all you will need to do is move the mount a little lower as the rear cage is sloped and moving it down will give you more clearance. There is plenty of clearance on the sides.
I hope this helps
Eric
will a 31" tire fit I have a 2018 rzr4 turbo?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what roof you have. I have an aftermarket roof that bends down with roll cage and 30” is max, unless you install tire carrier at highest point and flip the spare tire over so the outside of the wheel is touching the carrier plate. It will stick above roof line but I’ve never had any issues. I have 32” tires. A 31” tire may fit if you have a Polaris roof that flips up in the back and you install carrier lower. Hope this helps.
Will this fit with the Can Am cooler attached to the back?
Nicole M on Jan 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes it should, just test fit with cooler in back when mounting. I ride with a full size yeti under it.
Will this fit a high lifter?
David L on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am very pleased with the spare tire mount. I like the fact that i can see behind me on trails with my rear-view mirror.
Will this mount interfere with the trunk cover for the Can Am Maverick Sport 1000R DPS trunk - Part #1845900001 - or are they compatible?
Bill C on Jan 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have a 2019 Maverick Trail 1000 with cargo cover . This tire carrier does limit the cover lid opening to full height. I added 1/2" plastic spacer between spare tire and carrier to increase lid opening gap. I can easily remove 20L cooler from cargo space.
I have a 2017 Maverick X3 DS. Will this work with the LinQ 12 gallon cargo box? Is there enough room for the box to open sufficiently?
William P on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the Tusk Spare Tire Carrier on my 2016 Polaris 1000 4 seater. I have a 12" high 16" wide 24" length box.
I have the rack so top of the tire is same as roof. The box lid opens about 90% up, which is all I need.
What size diameter pipe are they using?Thanks
DAN C on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 1 1/2 1 5/8 for the cross piece
What is the distance center to center on the two mounting arms that go to the roll bar under the roof on the model that fits a 2015 RZR 900 EPS trail?
W A on Feb 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 28 inches
I have an aftermarket roll cage and need to know the distance between the mounting holes?
Alex F on Feb 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Alex
There are no mounting holes.There are two large couplings which slips over the two bars which come down from the roll cage to the back of the unit.If you have an aftermarket roll cage you need to make sure the distance between the two bars is the same as the orginal roll cage. The fit is right on so I would tell it needs to be exact. My unit isn't close to me at present so you will need to go by a dealer to get the measurement.
Hope this helps
Mike
Is there anyway to get more pictures of this on a Maverick trail?
Allen B on Feb 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don’t have any I would suggest YouTube. I have found many helpful videos on repairs and accessories the Rocky Mt website is very helpful as well.
Does anyone that has one use it with 32" spare tire?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I don't have that answer. But, I feel it would fit. It just might not fit under the roll bar at the back of the unit, unless it can be mounted lower on the side down roll bar tubes. Hope this helps.
