Spare wheel mount dimensions


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to come up with a solution to mounting my bigger-than-standard spare wheel in the back of my Range Rover..... Why the Defender forum, then, I hear you ask - bear with me!!

I've got an idea to mount a standard defender/series spare wheel mounting bracket (the rear door type) on the inner wing, but don't have one and haven't got a vehicle close by to be able to measure...

Can comeone give me the dimensions of the back plate and the length of the 3 studs that come off of it please? Also, how many mounting holes are there in the back plate?

Much obliged...

Cheers for the dimensions chaps...

Mo - I will take you up on the offer, but am not sure when I'm next in your neck of the woods! Will drop you a message once SWMBO has spoken to her mum and arranged something - if you don't mind holding on to it for now...
