I have carried pretty much every bike you can imagine - 50 lb Electric Pedegos to my 12 lb Trek Madone 6.7 SSL Carbon Fiber.

I have theYakima HoldUp 2-Bike Hitch Rack and it weighs almost 50 lbs - the best part is the air suspension keeps the car level even when fully loaded..

Do you have this on your 90D? Do you normally remove the hitch when not in use. Is there any wobble?

I've been using the seasucker mounts (which have worked perfectly but still stress me)
 
I had a slight wobble, but the Yakima Holdup comes with a tensioner/anti rattle pin that tightens the receiver to the rack. I use these on all my trailers and on my bike rack attached to my off road trailer too.. they work great.

Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 1-1/4" Hitches - 2-3/8" Span
Item # 63147

If your question is does my hitch attached to the car wobble, it did on my original car, but the one I have now doesnt wobble at all..
 
The safest, most exhilarating sedan on the road, your Tesla Model S needs a trailer hitch that will be able to keep up with all your driving needs, especially one that is as low profile as the EcoHitch, and now we have a hitch available for the 2017 Tesla Model S!


The EcoHitch for the 2012 through 2017 Tesla Model S comes in both 1¼-inch and 2-inch receiver sizes so you get your choice of which bike racks and cargo trays or ski racks that will work best for the receiver you choose.
