Which bike rack?

Looking for input/suggestions for a 4-bike, hitch mounted rack that will clear a 32x11.50 spare on the stock carrier. I need 9" minimum from the hitch pin hole to the closest vertical piece of the rack.
Anybody have one that fits that bill????
Thanks.

Finally something i might be able to help with . I just bought a 4 bike rack from Yakima . I just measured from the mounted 225 / 75 / 15 spare on the factory alloy rim on the factory spare carrier , it's 5.75 inch to the upright bar . From the hitch pin to the upright it's right at 11 in.
Sorry i didn't keep the box , so i'll have to see if i can come up with model nbr . You may be able to find it at : performancebike.com
Good luck ....................................... 409.

You are absolutely right...........you found the pot of Gold for people that want to carry things from bicycles, kayaks, snowboards, etc. I looked up Yakima, and found this site.

Thanks for the info guys. I ended up getting a Thule 957 "Parkway" because it cleared my spare and because the arms were close enough to fit my kids' bikes small frames. That, and my local bike shop hooked me up with a good deal.

I also have a Thule (don't remember which model). It has a very long hitch connection.
