    Re: Spare Tire Kit For 08 Cts

    Wish I had seen this before! I got stranded with a cut side wall last night, no spare. Onstar was great, thanks for the tow and cab. Could have handled it myself since i was in town, but Onstar made it very easy. If I have been out in the middle of nowhere (like I was the previous day) Onstar help would have been more huh...great.

    I found some spare used wheels and tires and just got those, but I still need a jack etc. Is there a good price/options on those? I have a portable floor jack but it is a bit bulky to keep in car all the time.

    Because an air pump doesn't do much good on a shredded tire like I just had.

    The sealant in the pump (if you need it for a nail hole, etc) messes up the TPMs sensor inside the valve end.

    I prefer a wheel & tire, thank you.

    I, too, prefer the optional donut spare wheel & tire.

    That said, I’ve read that GM’s tire repair kit water-based sealant is designed and tested for compatibility with valve cores and the Schrader TPMS sensors, and is easily water-rinsable from repaired tires.
    _____

    "Notice: Tire sealant materials are not all the same. A non-approved tire sealant could damage the TPMS sensors. TPMS sensor damage caused by using an incorrect tire sealant is not covered by the vehicle warranty. Always use only the GM-approved tire sealant available through your dealer or included in the vehicle.Factory-installed Tire Inflator Kits use a GM approved liquid tire sealant. Using non-approved tire sealants could damage the TPMS Sensors."

    2008-2012 CTS Owner’s Manual


    "In 2007, the company
    [SLIME/Accessories Marketing, Inc.] approached General Motors with its proposal to offer it as part of the original equipment package. GM agreed to review the product, but needed valid data that the sealant would be compatible with the new TPMS-equipped vehicles.

    "On behalf of GM, we worked with Schrader to help develop the product," said Tim Chai, vice president of key accounts for Sealant Systems International, the part of the company that works solely with OEMs. "Then we contracted with Standard Testing Labs on testing to ensure objectivity."

    STL conducted three separate tests on the product – a pass-through test; an immersion test and a vapor test – to see if Slime could seal a flat tire and not gum-up any TPMS components. Slime passed all three tests. The sealant did not clog up the sensor; it was not affected when immersed; nor were the components affected by the aerosol or vapor test.

    As a result of the testing, AAA gave Slime a preferred product designation. But most importantly, GM awarded Accessories Marketing a contract to supply eight new OEM platforms in 2010, the first being the all-new Chevy Camaro.

    One of the primary factors in the product’s acceptance by GM were new CAFE standards, which will result in reduced vehicle weights in that model year. GM is removing the spare tire and replacing it (and adding space to accommodate it) with a Slime Safety Spair kit in each vehicle."

    Luke,

    I have an '08 with the 18" wheel option. Is there a kit for that also? I'm local-ish, so I could just pick one up from you.

    If you live anywhere near Tampa, I have a new spare and tools in the foam insert. If you can come get it, it's yours for $50.

    I would suggest that each of you find a salvage yard in your area to buy an 'unused' spare tire kit for much less $$. I think you will be very happy at the price difference!
