Spare Tires

Friday, September 10, 2010 by Tire Rack Team
Have you checked your spare tire lately? Flat tires happen, usually without warning, so it's absolutely essential that you give your spare tire some attention on a regular basis. For starters, make sure you know how to install a spare tire on your vehicle. It can be tricky, but your Owner's Manual should provide all of the instruction you need. Once you get it down to a science, make sure you check the air pressure in your spare on a regular basis. A flat spare won't do you any good. Again, your vehicle's Owner's Manual should tell you exactly how much air should be in your spare. Tire Rack offers a number of suitable tire pressure gauges that simplify the process.

And since we're on the topic of spare tires, did you know that not all spare tires are alike? They actually come in a variety of different forms that usually depend on your vehicle. Let's take a look:

Full-Size Matching Spare Tire and Wheel: It requires the most storage space, but is an exact replica of your existing tire and wheel set. Integrate it into your tire rotation schedule from the beginning to assure proper tread wear. And unlike the following spare tire types, you can drive on this spare tire as long as the tread is acceptable.

Full-Size Temporary Spare: Despite the fact that a full-size temporary spare matches your vehicle's original tire dimensions, it isn't the same in terms of tread depth and weight. These spares are lighter, which makes the tire easier to install. In addition, it comes premounted on a steel wheel.

Compact Temporary Spares:
This is the short and narrow type, which takes up less space in your trunk but doesn't offer the tread you'd need to drive a significant amount of miles. It's a temporary fix, indeed. And one that shouldn't be used on any vehicle other than the one it comes with.

Folding Temporary Spare:
 How does a tire fold? Well, when there isn't any air in it, it can fold up quite nicely to save space. But generally not time as you'll need to inflate a folding temporary spare should the need for it arise.

Marcos, I sell the compact spare tire itself, but we do not carry a jack or wheel for a compact spare. If you can supply me a size that works with your vehicle, I can at least get you tire options. Thanks!

Dan,

Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately that is not a tire size that we carry. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
Wednesday, August 10, 2011 by jo:
Offering compact spare tire kits would seem to be a good money maker for Tire Track, considering that many newer cars are not including a spare (e.g. Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Accent, Chevy Cruze, Ford Focus,...).

Asking an ordinary consumer what size wheel and tire one requires for a compact spare is pointless -- I'd imagine that a retailer as large and established as the Tire Rack would have the resources to determine that and to offer such kits to consumers who don't want to rely on a can of "run flat."

Just my 2cents
Wednesday, August 10, 2011 by jo:
To add to my last comment, just do a search of the various auto forums, and you'll see that there is a strong demand for aftermarket spare tire kits.
Wednesday, August 10, 2011 by Kyle:
Need donut spare for 2004 Sienna XLE AWD. Replacing run flats. Current size is 225/60-17. I would need a mount also.
Thursday, August 11, 2011 by TireRack.com Team:
Kyle,

Thank you for your inquiry. Although we do not have any donut spare assemblies for the Sienna, we would be happy to price out a full size spare option for you. Please email marshall@tirerack.com if I can be of assistance.
Thursday, August 11, 2011 by Tire Rack Team:
Jo, We would prefer to be able to supply the full details and the product to assist customers who wish to purchase a compact spare kit. Unfortunately, the wheels used for compact spares are only produced for supply to the vehicle manufacturer. There aren't any wheel manufacturers who produce and sell compact spare wheels to the aftermarket. Compact spares are designed to only fit specific vehicles because of the difficulty of designing a very narrow wheel that clears the brake calipers of modern cars.
Saturday, August 13, 2011 by David G. Mills:
I concur with Jo above. I was quite surprised to see that my 2011 Saab 9-5 came with no spare tire, although the trunk is designed for one. maybe the run flat stuff will work for a nail, but it sure won't work if there's a blow out, or tire is significantly cut.

So it seems like there will be an aftermarket in spare tires.

I was going to use the spare off an old 9-5 but bolt patterns have cahnged.

Any 4 lug 17" donut would be great or else a cheap rim tire alternative in 17"
Tuesday, September 20, 2011 by Kathy:
I noticed someone else alreay asked you about this, but since the new 2011 Hyundai Elantra's do not come with spares, I feel like more people will be asking. Do you have these? The tire size is 215/45R17 but does the donut or spare need to be that exact size as well?
Monday, October 10, 2011 by Ken:
I need a spare tire solution for my 2010 bmw 335i X drive. I mount the snow's on the OEM wheels and store the run flats. I can buy a tire and wheels package, but are there any other options I should consider?
Monday, October 10, 2011 by spencer@tirerack.com:
We do not carry spare wheel applications, only tires. If you wanted a fullsized spare, we would be able to help out with that, but it all would depends on the trim package of the vehicle, and thus the size listed. If you wanted a full tire and wheel package, we would be happy to price one of those up as well. Feel free to contact spencer@tirerack.com and we will be happy to get the information we need and to give you a delivered quote.

I'm switching from run flats to regular tires on my BMW. Do you have the spare tire kit for a 2007 BMW 335i? I only need the tire and not the jack. Thank you.
Wednesday, April 18, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
We carry compact spare tires, but not compact spare wheels. If you have the wheel and know the size you need, we can supply it. If you want a full size wheel and tire, we have both the wheel and tire available. -ben@tirerack.com

I am looking for the temporary donut spare tire for a 2000 Nissan Sentra GXE. The size is T115/70R14. The wheel I have is fine, just need to find the tire. Do you have this? Thanks.
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
Keith, we carry a Bridgestone spare tire in that size, but they are on backorder. Price is $90 each. We have them on order but do not yet have an ETA from the manufacturer

I need a temporary spare tire & wheel for 04 sienna. where can I get one and how much it cost.
Friday, June 8, 2012 by Ben@tirerack:
We do not have the temporary spare wheels in general, including for the Sienna. A Toyota dealer or vendor of original Toyota parts would be the most likely place to find one.

We do carry some temporary spare tires. Prices will vary widely depending on size. I believe the Sienna usually uses T155/80R17. Bridgestone makes one that size fcor $288.
Tuesday, July 3, 2012 by fatz:
Is there a problem with mounting a larger size tire on the donut rim? For temporary use, only, of course. A 155/80R15 would fit in the spare tire hole in my Honda Civic and still be approximately the same diameter as the original 205/55R16.
Thursday, July 5, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
The question would be how wide the donut wheel is, and whether it has the required load rating. 155/80R15 fits from 4.5 to 5.5" nominal width.
Friday, July 6, 2012 by fatz:
Since the donut wheel is OEM, designed for the vehicle, I would expect load rating not to be an issue. The wheel for the Civic is 4.5" wide, 15" diameter.

It does seem strange to me that I have seen no mention of the possibility of using the donut rim this way. Everyone seems to want to replace a failed donut tire with the same thing.
Monday, July 9, 2012 by Steven:
Hello I need a replacement spar tire for my Dodge Journey. The current one I have is a Kumho T145/80 R16. Do you have this tire? Also does it come already installed on the Rim?
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
Hello Steven, we can order that tire, but it is backordered. It does not come installed on a wheel. They are $62 at present.
Thursday, July 19, 2012 by Carolyn Sutton:
Looking to replace the tire on my spare for my 2004 Toyota Sienna - any ideas?
Monday, July 23, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
If you have the T155/80R17 size, they seem to be backordered. They can be ordered from Bridgestone at @ $276 each. -ben@tirerack.com
Saturday, July 28, 2012 by Ben Wickersham:
I just purchased a 2012 Chevy Malibu with P225x50R17 tires without a spare tire. I need a spare tire and wheel that will fit in the trunk space that is approximately 5" deep and has a 26" diameter. Ben W.
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 by Marshall @ Tire Rack:
Ben,

The only spare tire option we would have would be a full size spare. This combo would meet your diameter requirements but is too wide to fit in the factory spare tire well. -Marshall@tirerack.com
Wednesday, August 8, 2012 by Arthur Catubay:
What small spare tire would you recommend for my BMW 2006 525i? My friend uses 135/80 17. Is 135/80 'standard' spare for the model?
Friday, August 10, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
Arthur, we do not have a listing for what would be the standard spare size for that 525i. Some of those came without run-flats, so BMW may have something listed.
Wednesday, August 15, 2012 by Richard:
Looking for a conpact spare for my 06 Miata: 17" wheels; tire height of my tires is 23"; bolt pattern is 5 on 114mm. Any for sale?
Wednesday, August 15, 2012 by Marshall @ Tire Rack:
Richard,
We do not offer and compact spare options, however we would be happy to assist with a full size wheel and tire. Please let me know if I can be of assistance. -Marshall@tirerack.com
Saturday, August 18, 2012 by Arthur:
My full size tire (for my 2006 BMW 525i) has a rim of 17". Does that mean that a donut spare has to have a rim of 17"? Or can I use what a friend is selling me, a donut with a rim of 15"?
Tuesday, August 21, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
The donut wheel may very well be a smaller size than the regular wheels. Before using it however, you should make sure that it fits properly on your vehicle and that it meets all required load ratings.
Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by Barry:
I have a Buick LeSabre 2000 and I need a new donut with rim. do you have those kinds of tires?
thanks
Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
Barry, we carry various sizes of donut spare tires, but none of the donut wheels.
Thursday, August 30, 2012 by Barry:
Thanks. Would you know where I could get the wheel? The one I have is all bent out of shape from being driven on.
thanks
Friday, August 31, 2012 by ben@tirerack:
For the wheel, you could check a GM dealer, salvage yard, or anyone who can order GM parts.

Looking for a compact spare for 2003 lw 200 Saturn station wagon. t115/70R16. If you do have them, can usually any tire place install them on the rim or is it a specialty service?
Monday, August 19, 2013 by ben@tirerack:
Danny we do not currently have anything in that size. Mounting of a tire in that size would be possible for most tire installers.
Friday, August 23, 2013 by Danny:
Thanks for your response Ben. Okay, do you expect to have them in soon? Or is there another size tire that is slightly different size that will fit on the rim and work? Thanks again for you time.
Friday, August 23, 2013 by ben@tirerack:
Certainly Danny. We have nothing in that size in the foreseeable future. The closest size we have is T125/70R16. That needs a 16x4 wheel and is 22.9" overall diameter. So if you were to use that size, make sure your spare well will fit the slightly larger dimensions, and make sure that the wheel size is 16x4. If you cannot find the spec of the wheel, the 4" is measured from bead seat to bead seat with the tire off the wheel.
Saturday, August 31, 2013 by Danny:
Hi Ben, thanks again for your continued replies. My wheel is the original that came with the Saturn. Original tire, original wheel. Now, on the markings on the side of the wheel, this thing still looks brand new, it says 16 x 4t?? Will that work? As I said the original wheel T115/70R16 is on there now but blown out. My wheel well will accommodate the slightly larger tire size. Just need to know if my wheel 16 x 4t will work with your tire. If so, what is the cost and how do I proceed. Have a good Labor day looking forward from hearing from you. Thanks
