Mike FWIW...I crossed my straps over the spare a and it worked for me. In other words, the straps created an "X" behind the spare. It was a bit challenging but I just extended straps as far as possible then tightened then up. I hope that makes sense. I'm sure others have some good advice as well.

Mike- I had the same problem. I made the lower straps as long as I could get them and then crossed them behind so the buckles are at the top of the tire. It is still tight to get them buckled but it's doable. Guide the straps up from the bottom. They should be long enough for you not to have to put your hands behind the tire from the sides, or at least not far.

The last one I had only survived about 4 months before the straps just rotted away in the sun. I park outside, and it baked from about April through July. The straps literally turned powdery when I pulled on them and broke them apart. Mark got me my replacement (excellent service, BTW), but I still haven't mounted it. I suspect it will do the same thing when I get around to it. If it was easier to put on I would just mount it when I go out and take it off when I come home. I think the product is a great idea, but with crap execution/construction.

I got mine from Kurt. Had it on the truck for about a year. Then a couple months ago I touched the bag and one strap ripped. I took it off and the straps were tearing like a piece of paper. I threw it in the trash can. I had no idea that I could warranty the thing.
