The Spare Tire Thread

41668 Views 190 Replies 42 Participants Last post by  Dave Z
This thread is to be all about spare tires. Given the age of many of our cars, our spares are probably due for replacement. What have you done, or how have you addressed this? Can be anything from, "I had to add a spare to my SRT car that didn't come with one," to, "I had to buy a new T125/90-18 to replace the old one," or anything else relevant...

2001 Caravan, original spare "donut" tire. Never used. I do add air to 60 PSI occasionally, I do lower it and grease the cable and latch mechanism so it will lower if I need it. 12 years old, probably should be replaced, if i ever do use it, I will definitely take it slow and remove it ASAP.

I didn't see compact spare tires as an option for the minivans on either dodge.com or chrysler.com, and a dealer told me it was not an option on the Grand Caravan if I ordered one.
Spare can be had as an option:

"Compact Spare Tire (Replaces TireInflator Kit) $ 295"

Good luck finding one on dealers lot though. Most 2014's are being ordered by dealerships without the spare, like the 2014 Grand Caravan I bought.

There is also a kit for Mobility Vans where the Spare Tire is relocated inside the vehicle:

The kit includes:

I wonder why jack is included, unless mine came with one by mistake?
