Rear Tire Carrier Latch Options

So I'm getting a custom rear bumper made at a local shop. Trying to figure out what some options are for a tire carrier latch and hinge? Does anyone have ideas, pics or links on where to buy them from? Not sure what type of hinge (bearings or hiem joints) and how to best latch it to avoid a rattling sound. TIA

you can run a swing out from the rear right corner using a trailer axel hub.
