Product Detail

Gecko Vs. Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier - The majority of tire carriers on the market today are bumper mounted systems. These systems are complex and have a number of drawbacks compared to our simple bolt-on system.

Simplicity and Weight - Our rack is just over 20lbs. By eliminating a massive bumper, you eliminate a lot of bulk and weight.

Price - While we are not a budget product, the cost of just a tire carrier or just a box carrier is always going to be substantially less then the cost of a bumper AND a tire/box combo.


The  Gecko Van  Spare wheel Carrier is the first structurally mounted carrier to open with the door. Many long hours of engineering went into making our carriers easy to install . 

Departure Angle

The last thing you want to do is limit the abilities of your van by adding a huge bumper. Gecko Carriers maintain the factory departure angle while almost all bumper mounts will decrease it substantially. When a bumper hangs low off the back of the vehicle it limits the grade where you van can go up or down.


We use huge mandrel bent steel tubing to achieve lightweight and strength.

Coming in at just over 12kgs, our carriers are incredibly lightweight while also offering superior durability. Aluminum is great in the right application but for road products that face a lot of vibration, steel can be a better choice. Aluminum although light, can catastrophically fail in a high vibration environments.
