Extended Thread Tire Hold
What is a extended thread tire hold and what can it do for me?
Just as the name implies a extended thread tire hold has the threads which hold your spare tire down extended a few more inches. What this means is you can now flip your spare tire upside down and use that space which was going unused for storage. Use it for an extra bag on long trips, when going grocery shopping, or just throw a roadside emergency kit in there. Take a look for yourself, go out and flip your spare tire upside down now and see all of the space you can gain by buying one of these.
But why do I need to have this in order to flip my spare?
If you use a unmodified hold down the threads will not be long enough and you will not be able to tighten the hold down enough to prevent the spare from moving. As you can imagine if you even brake hard without the spare properly secured it could cause some serious damage to the underside of the front trunk lid, a costly repair to say the least.
Here are some before and after pictures of the space gained.
Cost is $30 shipped to anywhere in the continental US. International orders please PM me for additional shipping cost.
Note: One size fits all. The standard model does not allow you to run a full-sized spare upside right (Like you have right now). If you have 2000-2002 model year spyder with the donut spare you can run it right side up with this tie down. If for whatever reason this is an issue you can get a bolt extension for an extra 2 dollars or the longer tie down for an additional 5 dollars. Again that is only necessary if you have a 2003+ spyder and think you might want to run with the spare right side up.
If you have any questions at all please feel free to ask me, either in this thread or PM. Thanks.
