Spare tire carrier MOD

Posted 09-13-2018 at 09:44 PM by GMFL

Ok so there’s this guy on the forum “rclay416”, who had a terrible thing happen with a blown tire.
Long story short, he had a blow out and had a roadside tire service come out and change his tire for him. Once done the roadside tire service guy placed his blown tire back in the spare tire carrier..... Bad idea..... the blown tire and rim fell through the carrier while traveling down the road and caused MAJOR DAMAGE to his unit. In the fine print of the Airstream owners manual it states that the carrier is ONLY for good tires and to NEVER place a damaged tire in the rack.... who knew?
Anyway I decided that I would do a little welding and “fix” the carrier so that it could carry a damaged tire while traveling to be fixed. Here’s some self explanatory pictures of what I did.
