    Could you post the GM part number for the kit you purchased? My dealer cannot find a "kit" part number.

    Quick question. Does this spare tire kit work on the coupe. I noticed all of you drive sedans or wagons...

    Im definately interested if it does.

    Yes it does.



    It even came with a mounting base, jack, breaker bars and socket.



    I need to put Velcro on the bottom so it doesnt slide around. Not much room in the trunk but it will beat a tow if I'm in the middle of nowhere. Got a cheap cover that keeps it tidy.

    Go to this website: http://adaptitusa.com/5x120to5x120wheeladapter.aspx
    Thanks for the link. This sounds like a much more reasonable option. What options do you select for the adapter for that link?

    Also this fits around the subwoofer?

    Everytime I read this thread title, I laugh at the huge ego of the OP.

    Yes, it does. I have this setup, having transferred it from my V sedan. This is an image from my wagon.

    Ugh I feel like I should get this but it's still quite expensive... At the very least at least I bought my towhook eye...

    You will kick yourself if you get a flat and you are stuck at the side of the road for two hours in a snowstorm waiting for a tow. It happened to me, including the BAD snowstorm part, and was the impetus for my purchase. The money spent is well worth the convenience. Now a flat is at worst, a 15-20-minute inconvenience and not a huge chunk of your day wasted. Car should have come with at least the option for a spare.

    Re: Full Spare tire kit for anyone interested in seeing. I made it work.

    Awesome thread!!!

    So at that site... (adapt it USA)

    I have a selection for 5 X 120 to 5 X 120 Wheel Adapter ($54.75)
    I have a field for Adapter Thickness: 1.5 inch (+$5.00)
    I have a selection that asks "Does your vehicle take lug bolts?": I believe I answer no, as the V takes lug nuts, not bolts, (is that right?)
    (Selections for year/make & phone are intuitive)
    I have a selection for Stud upgrade and see the 14x1.50 selection in teh drop down: I select that ($10.00)

    (It's non-returnable, so I want to get this right...once.)

    Banph, can you verify this & answer the nut/bolt question?


    Next, I need to get a jack, wheel/tire & wrench. If I understand the above posts right, I can get a wheel/tire from an '09+ CTS and use it as a spare on all 4 corners on the 2011 V sedan.
    Is there an alternate wheel/tire I should consider instead?

    Banph, can you verify this & answer the alternate wheel/tire question also?

    Re: Full Spare tire kit for anyone interested in seeing. I made it work.

    Sorry for the delay, but I don't watch this forum that much.

    I suggest you call them directly, but here is what I have on my Sales receipt:

    ADAPTSM15 Wheel Adapter 1.50" QTY 1 $49.75
    Vehicle: 5X120
    Wheel: 5X120
    LG14X150 14mm X1.50 ET Lug Nut QTY 5 No Charge
    Lug Nut Discount since 5 come with the purchase of the adapter Credit of $5.00

    ST14X150 14mm X150 Lug stud Upgrade (per stud) QTY 5 $3 each = $15.00

    SHIP $10.00
    2012 Cadillac CTS-V Type

    No Sales tax

    Total $69.75


    Hope this helps. The adapter comes with lug studs (12MMX1.50) but I asked them for the 14Mm upgrade so i could use my original lugs nuts that come with the car.

    With regards to the spare tire.. Others have posted the GM kit. You can get it through GM Direct Parts.
