    Comments about Thule Spare Meâ„¢ 963PRO:

    Installed this on my Jeep's spare tire and loved the idea of being able to open tailgate without having to remove bikes. However, rack is made for skinny road bikes and not mountain bike frames. Could not get two mtb's to fit properly and couldn't even get a smaller framed mtb to fit at all. Sadly, I had to return it.

    Good, but could be better.

    Comments about Thule Spare Meâ„¢ 963PRO:

    I mounted this on my Jeep Wrangler in December 2007. For many, many years it was what I loved most about my Jeep. It was easy to use and always ready. There were some problems, and these have been mentioned by others:
    1) The bike can come loose. Mine came off on a highway at 75 mph. Thank God no one was hurt. Now I always lock the bikes to the frame with a steel cable.
    2) The rack rusts. Mine finally became unusable in 2016 and I had to remove it. I do think it should last the life of my vehicle.

    Given all that, I am on this website because I am buying another.

    Good Rack

    Comments about Thule Spare Meâ„¢ 963PRO:

    I've had this rack for just over a year and love it. I have a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sahara (2-door), and it fit perfectly on the spare tire. It's been solid with minimal vibration when carrying my mountain bike on both on and off road. It's a bit awkward when carrying two full sized mountain bikes, but that's the only slight issue I've had.
