I drive a Suzuki Grand Vitara with the tailgate mounted spare wheel. 

 

I installed a tow bar instead of risking damage to the tailgate. They were designed to carry a spare wheel and not a spare wheel + bike rack + bike.

Hence the advice I got about the hinges not being able to carry the additional weight. So looks like a towbar it is

From my end it was that the additional weight on the door could cause the metal to bend.
