Jeep bike rack

What is a good inexpensive bike rack that will fit my 33x12.5 spare tire? I only need it to carry 2 bikes, and I drive an 04 TJ.

Thanks in advance, Matthew

I love my Yakima hitch rack. But I did need a hitch extension.

All we needed was a couple inches extra and a smaller insert since we didn't have a hitch small enough to fit the rack.

I have 31s but as you can see there is plenty of room for a 12" wide tire.

Fits one road bike..
Or a mountain bike and a road bike.

There's space for four bikes but I wouldn't put more than three on it. That's just me acting like a scared parent but my uncle has had a brand new road bike fall off and crumble against the road(not with this rack). Like my jeep, my bikes are my babies.

I have a yakima bigdaddy (great rack) but I would suggest a thule spare tire carrier. My buddy has one and it is way easier to use then my hitch carrier. The only reason I bought the yakima was because I can switch it between my wrangler and the wifes compass.
