Great Rack for Spare Tires with CoversJun 18, 2008
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.

I used this rack on our '08 Rav 4 and it worked out great. I recommend it for anyone who drives a RAV.

Be careful to not buy older versionAug 11, 2007
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.

spare tire rackSep 05, 2009
By Jean Faber
I had a Thule Spare Me bike rack for my Honda CRV, and I loved it, but when I bought a Toyota RAV 4. the Thule didn't fit. It took me a while to review the spare tire racks available, and I finally decided on the Hollywood SR!. It was easy to mount, and so far, I haven't had any problems, but it definitely isn't as sturdy as the Thule. I put a chain around it to attach it to the spare tire (which has a safety lug nut on it) to at least slow a thief down. Otherwise, it would be very easy to remove from the tire. If your car will take a Thule, I would recommend that, but the Hollywood is an acceptable rack if the Thule won't work.

A great way to have bicycle portability and not get a hitchJan 02, 2011
By Oisin Mcguigan
I drive a RAV4 and while glancing through the offerings on Amazon for a bike rack I instantly noticed the demo video used a rav4. I also noticed that it didn't need a hitch. Friends with a RAV4 told me how they got a hitch and rack and all in all it cost them $300-400. After seeing the demo video it became clear that this is an all in one device that has the convenience of quick and easy dis assembly. I got it in the mail and it looked like the mailman had dropped it from a 12 storey building. However, due to the sturdy build of this rack and all its parts it didn't make any difference. It was perfectly in tact and after 15 minutes was mounted to my vehicle. I cannot speak more positively about how easy it was to install, how well it looks and how quick it will be to remove it when the time comes.
RAV4 owners, this is a must buy if you are in the market for a rack.
