Mounting spare tire

My spare tire mounts on the rear bumper using 2 - 5" x 5-1/2" U-bolts which are pretty much square, not rounded, so they fix snug on the bumper. Any idea where to purchase or will I need to have them special made? TIA.

I'm pretty sure any RV parts supply house would have that. I think I also saw it in a Tractor Supply store.

My local Ace Hardware store had them in 5" x 5" and they fit just fine.

If all else fails a spring shop can make them for you.

You can also use two regular 5.5" bolts and then a back plate. Surprisingly, I found the right size back plates at the hardware store on the same rack with the U bolts and other similar items.
