tire carier

i'm planning on making my oun tire carier. does anyone has done this? i would like to see some picuters of some different carriers to figure out how to make it. it will most likely be a triagle with reinforment in the middle, mounted on a bumber. i'm still stuck un the hings, the lock on the other side, and how to make the conecton with the frame. i would like to have the hings run in ballbearing, or if thats not possible in bushings. and the conection to the frame needs to be strong, because i want to put towhooks on it......

i plan on building a tire carrier with this spindle pretty soon. it's inexpensive and appears to be pretty strong.

Naa .. those tires don't rub on anything anymore .. those are my baby little 33" that I put on 'er last summer. This summer she got a set of 38" tires .. and I have 35" for winter drivin' on the street .. some mud-terrain's that I am going to have siped.

Actually, I always had tire rub .. when I was running 235/75r15, I rubbed. When I put on the 33" tires .. I rubbed. I put the 38's on her .. and I rubbed. I installed Bushwacker flares .. I didn't rub anymore I think I have finally figured out my problem
