    Triton spare tire carrier

    Was checking with the stealership today about their price for a spare tire carrier and matching wheel and tire for a spare. They were $100 more for the spare than I found the combination of wheel and tire on recstuff. But then things get confusing for the spare tire carrier. Everything on Triton's website points to the 08519 carrier as what is needed but someone at Triton told the dealer that is the wrong one, I need part#15430 which is $15 more and looks like it is for one specific trailer, the APT.

    If you have their carrier do you know which one you have???????

    This is exactly why I make my own stuff. I can't be bothered with part numbers and "hope it will fit".

    What's confusing? Basically, there are 2 types of spare tire/wheel mounts. Pick one that best fits your need.

    Wrong? That depends where you want to mount the spare, and type of trailer. However, the two you listed are basically the same but for different size wheel/tires and trailer types.

    15430APT: This Spare Tire Carrier Kit is a great addition to Triton APT model trailers. The Triton 15430 APT Series Utility Trailer Spare Tire Carrier Kit bolts right to the standard side kit of the APT Series Utility or ATV trailer. With the large 15-inch tires used on the APT series, this is the best spot for mounting a spare tire. This spare tire can be locked in with optional padlock. The kit comes with hardware to install the spare tire carrier kit.

    08519: The Triton 08519 Spare Tire Carrier Kit is an excellent space saver for the tongue of your Triton trailer. For PWC trailers.

    Tommygunner I get all that. I have already seen what you just posted hence my confusion. Why is the Triton rep telling the dealer that I need the HD version of the carrier for a 13" aluminum rim? No big deal really it's only a few bucks more.

    I have left an email and voice mail but have not gotten a reply from Triton in Wisconsin. It is the regional Triton distributor that is telling the dealer I should get the upgraded version. It really isn't that big a deal, first world problems.

    Edit:
    Just got a return call from Triton in Wisconsin and they say the lighter duty version, the 08519 is what I need, just like everything on their website points to.....let's just say regional distributor adamantly disagrees.
