C class spare tire

Hello...does anyone know what the bumper weight rating is on a 2019 Quantum RC25? Taking delivery next week and want to put a spare tire/mount on the bumper. Thanks

I think most here will respond with don't do it. The spare is heavy and the weight on the mount will twist and distort the bumper possibly leading to failure. Better solution is to use a mount that attaches to your hitch.

I'm going to say don't do it. My spare tire and holder weighs 80lbs. I know a lot of bumpers have a rating of 100lb,but I'm sure you can contact thor and get your bumper's rating. I'm going to carry mine using the reese hitch since I don't tow anything.

Sounds like good advice. I will use a dual receiver extension instead. Safe travels to all!
