Spare wheel carrier on the hood

Does anybody know if there are spare wheel carriers for aluminum wheels on the hood ?

The standard Land Rover ones don't work wondering if there are after market ones available

Wonder if a D1 rear door mount would work.
A friend of mine runs a land rover / range rover specialty repair shop. Based on his experience, they are capable of stopping anywhere, anytime, at any cost.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.

I'm also interested in this. So far I've found this frontrunner carrier. It looks like it may work but not sure. Has anyone installed one of these?

reach out to nathanwind, he will know much more about this. Think aluminum wheel is too heavy and may obstruct view.
