View Full Version : Spare Tire Idea for Abarth

10-18-2013, 02:22 PM
Just curious if anyone knows if this is possible...

For biking I'm thinking of getting a hitch installed on my Abarth. With all the truck/jeep accessories out there I did a search and found these hitch Spare Tire Carriers (not sure if they're 1 1/4") on Amazon. Then when I go on a trip I just pop this into the hitch and then attach my extra wheel that I got off the classifieds. I'm thinking the car would like the old T-birds or Cadillac/Lincolns that had the spare cover molded into the bumper/trunk.

And for those saying...just put it inside, let's say it's an 8+ hour trip for a 4-5 days and the inside is packed with luggage, the dog, the partner, bags of fast food, etc.

And for those saying...take/rent a bigger car, No..I want to take my Abarth. Even if it's just me and I just want my bag nicely tucked in the back without folding the seats down so that the inside feels clean :)
