It’s well known that the Defender rear doors show signs of stress with the weight of the spare wheel on the door.The ORE wheel carrier works with all defenders with the standard rear doors for either early or late models. There is no drilling required as the design has been developed around existing fixing points on the standard rear cross members and early and late doors.
The wheel carrier takes all the weight of your spare wheel while maintaining the functionality of the rear door. There is a small linkage which connects the door to the arm thus allowing the door to move the arm for convenience whilst no load is transferred in the closed or open positions. This unique design incorporates automotive grade bearings that can be greased via the grease nipple. Unlike other versions available our arm does not need to sit on a stop when the door is closed and the there is no sliding plates on the door that the arm can sit on so 100% of the load is transferred to the chassis only (That’s what a “single point” wheel carrier should do)! This is also why you see Chris stood on the wheel with the door fully open…. try do that with others on the market!!
Disclaimer – we take no responsibility for loss or injury should you try what’s been called the #OREstandard test by standing on the wheel carrier. Chris is a highly trained chimp! The head is adjustable to accommodate tyre sizes from 235 to over 285 and the most common wheel offsets. The ORE design team have spent thousands of hours on this project to bring you this heavy-duty single point wheel carrier. We’ve even had a tyre as large as 35″x12.5″ (contact us for tyres over 285). Manufactured and designed in the UK and designed to high tolerances (0.02mm) and exceptional standards of quality. Our high-performance coating system undergoes the same treatments as British Tank Armour! Go on… Treat yourself to a little piece of mind and protect your investment when you’re doing what we all love to do with our Land rovers….. GET THEM WET AND MUDDY!
