2011 Honda Odyssey: Hauling our new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Wheels and Tires

December 16, 2011

The return trip from Stokes involved no bulky wheel boxes because, well, our 2012 Jeep Wrangler's new wheels are now mounted inside its new tires, as they should be.

Now the load is compact enough that they'll fit into our 2011 Honda Odyssey without need to remove the middle row. The amount they tilt forward will be sufficient.

Compared to the ienna's slider, the Odyssey's tilting action doesn't open up as much space. My tape suggests the difference is almost 10 inches in the Sienna's favor. The Odyssey's tilt action is geared toward third-row access improvement instead of cargo expansion; they're not really latched down in the position.

None of this is a problem, really, because they're a grunt and lift from coming out at this point. But this is what you get with them left in place.
