Adjustable Hanging Tire Rack Recommendations

Looking to buy a couple of hanging tire racks. Any recommendations?

I don't have this rack but it looks promising. This is probably what I would buy.

That was one I was looking at. Was hoping for some owner feedback. Also looking at the one by JEGS

I would bet that the JEGS rack is exactly the same as the TireRack version. Griots also sells one IIRC.

I have the Tirerack version and it works very well and is easy to install, etc. I would buy another one without thinking twice.

Thanks for your feedback. Ended up buying the Hyloft brand through wayfair.com. Looks like the tirerack, jegs, and other same design, but different-branded racks out there.

http://www.wayfair.com/Hyloft-Heavy-...00-YX1028.html

Same price, but free shipping and 2% cash back through ebates.

I have 2 of the tirerack variety. Like them. I mounted pretty high for most so I can walk under. Just requires lifting 50 lbs overhead to load and unload. No biggie.

I have 2 of them, they are great. I wouldn't skimp out on the cost of a rack, considering they are hanging over my car and people walking by on occasion.

Anything hanging on a wall is scary in earthquake areas.

Anything? I disagree, not if it's well designed/installed.
