If there’s one thing I hated about my garage space before installing a wall mounted tire rack was that there was always a stack of tires getting in my way. Not any more! With the Maxxhaul folding wall mount tire rack, my extra set of wheels and tires is nicely stored on the wall and totally out of the way!
Sure, I could have made a wall mounted tire rack solution out of wood, but have you seen the price of lumbar lately? Yet, why would I bother when Amazon has a highly rated product available from Maxxhaul for less than $100 USD shipped? I wouldn’t, and neither should you!
The Maxxhaul 70489 is a folding and adjustable wall mounted tire rack solution that is made of powder coated stainless steel. It’s horizontal bars slide and are adjustable from 32 to 48″ across. Maxxhaul claims the bar supports up to 300 pounds.
The entire assembly weighs about 17 pounds. The wall mounts come pre-assembled and bolt to the studs in the wall with three 13mm bolts. Installation is a breeze, all considered, and the only additional tool needed is a stud finder (which I borrowed from a neighbor), a drill for the pilot holes in the wall studs, and a 13mm socket. If it’s not mounted next to an adjacent wall, you can get away with just 13mm wrench.
As you’ll see in the video below, installation was painless. I spent more time taking measurements than I did piecing the kit together.
I’ve already racked a set of four wheels and tires up and down several times. The tires on my wheels are 245/40/18’s and measure right about 25″ in diameter. Once concern was if the tires would make contact with the wall and I’m happy to report they do not! However, I suspect larger diameter tires in the 27-28″ neighborhood just might.
One concern I have with this kit is the strength of the horizontal bars. I know they’re rated at 300 pounds however there does appear to be the slightest of bowing across the middle. It may just be an optical illusion, as the horizontal bar is actually two pieces that slide out to extend.
Another nice thing about this kit is that the horizontal bars fold up and out of the way when they’re not holding a set of wheels. This makes the rack more discrete when not in use.
Overall, this is a great kit and recommend it to anyone looking for a cost effective solution to getting tires off of the ground.
