hey. i'm going to make a tire holder that goes in the receiver hitch. just a basic L shape to go into the hitch and then attach the tire on the vertical part. is 1/8 thick enough? just 1 basic weld or maybe the deluxe model might swing down. obviously thicker is stronger, but i don't want to pay more than i need to or make drilling it a pain in the ass.

thanks

depends on the tire size and the size of your bracket. i would use 1/4 in the part that goes in the receiver as thats the part that will have most stress on it. i guess thats hole you are worried about.


i made something similar a while back but i had two recivers. two 1/4 inch plus in insert in the lower section but that was for a much heavier tire.

I would make it 1/4" on the part that goes into the hitch and 3/16 on the up right tube. That would hold up to a 35 no problem, I don't think you will probably go much bigger tire then that anyways eh?
