Step Up Wheel Step

Make loading your Combi Box or getting your freeride bike on your roof rack a little easier with the Thule Step-Up. This heavy-duty platform straps to either the front or rear tire of your vehicle, so you can actually see what you're doing on the roof. It works wonderfully on trucks or SUVs that are too high off the ground to comfortably load. The no-slip platform ensures sure-footed loading. The attachment strap easily runs around the tire and fits any vehicle regardless of wheel-well clearance. Thule includes a carrying bag, and the Step-Up folds flat for easy storage.

My husband and I have a Subaru Forrester. We are totally psyched with our Step Up wheel. Even though he is on the taller side, using it makes it much easier for him to mount and remove gear from our roof rack. For me it's a lifesaver. Since it hooks over the back tire, I sometimes have to open the front door and reach what I need towards the hood. Not a big deal. For me, being able to reach almost everything on the roof makes all the difference. The tote the Step comes with is great--no mess (key in VT winters) and easy to tuck away. Overall, this is a handy option for reaching the roof and I highly recommend it.

Is there a human weight limit when using this tire step? I weight in at 200 #.

An interesting solution

Since I am 5'2", getting my bike into the rack on my Land Cruiser (very tall vehicle) is extremely difficult without a ladder and who wants to carry a ladder around? This product solves the problem nicely and even comes in a nifty carrying case. I gave 4 out of 5 stars because right over the tire isn't always where I need to be, so I still have to use the running boards on the car with a door open. I usually have one foot on the Thule step and one on a running board, but it works.
