Its here, after 6 months of design and development and a further 18 months on test! At last, a true single point wheel carrier for the defender!


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 eaither early and 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 conviniece whilst no load is transfered in the closed or open positions. This unique design encorporates automotive grade bearings that can greased via the grease nipple.


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 black powder coating undergoes the same treatments as British Tank Armour! Go on... Treat yourself to a little piece of mind and protect your investment when your doing what we all love to do with our Landrovers..... GET THEM WET AND MUDDY!


Please note: the current version has only been tested with genuine NAS steps part no STC50301
