So far so good
By A. Lang
I bought this for use on our 2001 Chevy Tracker. It was very easy to attach and it fits perfectly over the spare (size P205/75R15). We had to move the bars as we have a side mounted spare and it is factory assembled for a center mount.
The screws stripped quite a bit so if one plans on changing the set-up much, an investment in better quality screws would be a good idea. Otherwise, it looks and feels stable. Haven't as yet put bikes on it but we will be doing so this weekend (surprising our soon-to-be-kindergartner with a new bike). I will update this review after we've used it.
As a side note, this did come with all of the mounts and straps shown.
Update since use. We have used the bike rack several times. Easily mounted and bikes remain secure. Very good mechanism for the price.
Hollywood Rack works fine
Went on easily and works fine. I've used it 5 times and it does what it should without any real hassles.
Good product for stock Jeeps

If you are considering this bike rack then also consider a tire cover to protect your spare tire because you will surely scratch you rim with the bike peddles. Good product. Seems durable, easy to put on and take off. Enjoy the outdoors!
bike rack excellent - shipping terrible
By Jack W. Hickey "Jeeper"
since we have received this item we have used it several times with no problem. It is mounted on the spare tire of a new jeep and when the top is down there is no rattle whether loaded or unloaded.
when the rack was received the box it was in was in shambles. i was worried that all my parts were not there but they were.

I have a Jeep Liberty and I like this bike rack because it is easy to put on and remove. It securely attaches to the spare tire and when I'm done, I just take it off and it flattens out so I can store it away easily. Great price, quick and easy installation... I highly recommend it.
A rack that fits an oversize Jeep tire
By R. Salcedo
I purchased this bike rack for my 2004 Jeep Wrangler with 32x11.5 tires. This fits snuggly on the tire. It should fit 33x12.50 but no larger than that. The front of the rack droops a little with the weight of a beach bike and a mountain bike but it isn't bad at all. I just tightened up the straps. Overall I would rate this 4 stars and would recommend this item.
This rack got my two, fairly heavy mountain bikes through a 900 mile road trip without breaking. I was a little concerned; it doesn't look all that sturdy, but it managed. It said it works with Jeep Wranglers, which it does, but it's a bit of a squeeze around the third brake light. Product is galvanized on the outside, but not on the inside. The first time it got rained on, rusty water drained from the tubing. It did the job though, and was a reasonable price.

I used this bike rack to carry my road and mountain bike from Kansas City to Corvallis Oregon. Everything went great, of course I had also used bungees to strap the bikes tight for less up and down motion. But I think those only cost around $4.00. I would highly recommend this item to anyone the need to carry their bike around town or cross country. I have left it on since I have arrived in Corvallis, it rains a lot but I only saw a little bit of rust come out of the bike rack. Also I attached it to my Honda CRV which has a off set tire and this did a great job of offsetting the bikes to be directly behind the car for less drag. The set up of this does take about 5-10 minutes, so I leave my rack on there and bought a cheap cable lock to keep anyone from stealing it. A must bye for bikers who have the off set spare on your vehicle.
Be careful to not buy older version
By j garr
I just purchased the SR1, as advertised here on Amazon and on Hollywoodracks.com. However, it is NOT the one in the photos on either site. The one in the photos has, I discovered, support arms that are new for 2007. Their part number is SR1-SA2 and they have the cradle and rubber straps to set the bike frame in. The prior support arms simply have a dip in the arm where you set the frame, so you have to figure out some other way to keep the bike from bouncing off the support arms. That part number is SR1-SA.
Apparently Hollywood Racks did not think to distinguish the new from the old model because they are both SR1. So, be careful what you buy because I'm not sure there is a way to tell which you are getting unless you open the box, since the model number is the same for both. (Looks like a convenient "mistake" that allows Hollywood to unload older merchandise on consumers!)
As to how the bike rack works -- not sure I'm going to even keep it, so can't say yet.
Great Rack for Spare Tires with Covers
We purchased this rack for use on a Chevy Tracker & Jeep Liberty. We wanted something that would be able to slip on/off without alot of tools and be able to be mounted on either SUV that we own without alot of hassle.
Both spare tires have covers and we wanted something that did not require mounting to one of the bolts holding on the spare tire.
This rack has been used several times in the last month and works great.
Another review on here stated they received the rack with just plain arms for sitting the bike on. Ours did come with the plastic cradles and rubber straps shown in the present picture of the rack and which are the newer model. (part# SR1-SA2)
The rack has remained tight on the spare tire ever since the original mounting. The only cons we noticed and this was mentioned on another review was that we did notice a small amount of rust after only a few days on the tightening bolts threads. Other than this, the rack has performed as expected and we would recommend this rack for anyone who has multiple vehicles with outside spare tires and might want to change the rack to the either vehicle without alot of hassle.
