Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

Q
I bought aRad Rover eBike. It has 4" tires. Do you sell an Insta-Gater that will work with a 4" tire. If not, can the Insta-Gater be stretched to open wider than 3" to accommodate a 4" tire?

A
Unfortunately Thule's Insta-Gater only accommodates bicycle tires that are up to 3" wide. However we have a wide variety of Thule bike racks/accessories available that may work to fit your needs--you can find those options from our website: https://www.crutchfield.com/g_336650/Bicycle-Carriers.html Or feel free to contact an Advisor by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat to discuss further.
