Thule "Spare Me" bike rack

Do you guys think this Thule "Spare Me" bike rack will work with our SMB? We will have a 35's spare tire mounted behind us with a trojan tire carrier. Thanks!

Weight weight weight... I'd say the 35 is enough without adding bikes on a lever.

This was offered by SMB West and we went for it. The rack fits onto the Aluminess swing away tire carrier, but we only have one bike, mine, so I hope the weight isn't too much. One question I thought about: when I move the spare into rotation, how to get the damned rubber attachments off the tire (never?).

Found out that this rack will not fit on a 35" BFG A/T tires. The rack cannot extend due to the height of the tire. We ended up returning it and planning on a hitch type bike rack.
