I’m not sure how you’d mount the bottom straps to the tire. There are two metal lips on the bottoms of the straps for the bottom of the door that you use. It’s nicely against the brake lite and doesn’t block it. Really well built for a “spare tire mount”. Definitely the best I’ve seen so far until more official ones start rolling out...very nice, thanks, I did not think that one would fit; so it must just nicely straddle that 3rd brake light and doesn't interfere with the rear wiper? do you know if there is an option to mount those bottom straps meant for under the bumper to the bottom of the spare instead?
