The Mac's Y-Strap offers several advantages over typical spare tire tie down solutions
Blowing a tire in the middle of nowhere is bad enough. Discovering your spare flew off a mile earlier is worse. Y-Straps need to do more than look good holding a spare. Your tie down system needs to handle the demands of off road racing.
And recent changes banning tire balls in certain race series make it even more important to be able to depend on your spare.
Mac's Y-Strap is built to survive. This racer-first approach to our equipment is also why Mac's Y-Straps look so good.
Tough. Very Tough.
Our Y-Strap is rated to 5,000lb Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS), giving you plenty of safety margin.
The foundation of our Y-Strap is our premium webbing. This is the same 12,000 lb rated material used on our vehicle tie down straps. It offers superior UV and abrasion resistance, so you can count on years of survival through rough terrain.
But strap assemblies are only as good as the stitching that holds them together. That's why each connection on a Mac's Y-Strap is sewn using the highest stitch count in the industry.
All metal components on our Y-Strap now include our improved zinc coating, for even better corrosion resistance.
Easy Release Ratchet
The easy release ratchet handle eliminates any adjustment stickiness
During a race, every second counts, including when changing a tire. We've completely redesigned our ratchet to release the first time, every time.
We form our ratchet handle from a single piece of steel, making it 40% more rigid than the competition. We go a step further by adding mandrel caps to keep the dirt out and increase rigidity. The result is a true free-wheeling mandrel and release mechanism that works fast and easy.
Adjusts to Fit Tires 35" to 40" Perfectly
The primary leg of the Mac's Y-Strap is ratcheted, but we've also incorporated adjustment buckles into the two "static" legs, which connect to our unique Direct D-Slide ring. Together, this make centering the straps on your wheel easier than ever. The assembly adjusts to a perfect fit on tire sizes from 35" up to 40".

The Racer's Choice
The late Jesse Combs won the 2018 King of the Hammers Pro Comp 4600 Stock Class with the Mac's Y-Strap spare right behind her the whole way.
Justin Lofton, driver of the Lofton Racing #41 Trophy Truck, even calls for Mac's Y-Straps on his support vehicles, because he wants his whole team as well equipped as he is. (catch him on Facebook)
