I'd use a shackle instead of those carabiners. They (the carabiners) are not rated for that type of load... They also make quick disconnect shackles that are very fast to install and remove! I've been using these quick disconnect ones for years and they're so easy to use--no trying to screw in the pin, no worry about the pin unscrewing due to vibration.

Flipped both horizontally and vertically, but I downloaded the image and just flipped it both ways. Then it was clear.

The carabiners are rated for the weight and were relatively inexpensive. I will see how they work and if there is an issue with them unscrewing due to the vibration I will use something else. Thanks for the suggestion of the shackles.

This whole method of securing the tires seems like it is so much better than what I had planned that I feel much more secure using it.
