    Yes it clears the rear that was the easy part the front was the issue.

    Guys I called all my support vendors on this and I will need 5+ guys interested with deposits to get this going for anyone. its too costly otherwise and I am not making a dime off this.

    It will take me 7-10 days to get all the parts and stuff made etc before shipping.

    Think about this, Onstar is great but when your stuck having this spare will be a lifesaver.

    How much of deposit are you talking about?

    Wouldn't it be easier for you to provide a list of parts that we can order (wheel, jack, etc) while the board members give you a few dollars for the required milled part?

    Also, regarding this milled part, what exactly does it do?

    I might buy one.

    First I need details on the wheel/tire brands & sizes. Did it require and cutting or drilling?

    Anyone know if the BMW M3 bolt pattern is the same as the CTS-V? Below is a spare tire kit for $290 for a 19" rim. I think an M3 has some big brakes too but not as big as the V.

    found this too for the C6 but pricey!

    The BMW M3 spare kit says it is a 17" wheel with a 125-80-17 tire. That is too small.

    Vette Spare.com uses a narrowed Corvette 18" wheel and a Hoosier front runner tire. It might fit our cars but it would be an expensive experiment. I contacted the guy who runs Vette Spare. He would gladly narrow a CTS-V wheel to use for a spare. The problem is finding a narrow 19" tire.

    The only car with a 19" compact spare I have been able to find is a Land Rover (and most of those come with full-size spares). Land Rover uses our 5x120 mm bolt circle. I found the wheel but no tire.

    I am highly, highly interested in purchasing this. What size is the tire?? Is the wheel 9.0" wide or 9.5" wide or other.

    Is the outer diameter is the same as our stock outer diameters.

    Thank you very much for sharing.

    I am interested in a spare tire for my CTS-V. I have a friend with a CTS-V (who is not on the forum) who wants a spare also.

    I'm very interested in this. How much of a deposit? Will you (or one of your vendors) do the milling work you mentioned on the spare wheel? I have no tools or skills for anything like that myself.... Thanks for sharing this, it's really a great solution!

    The brass should seriously consider designing an OEM spare kit solution and offering it as an after-market accessory. If it was available, it would be in my garage right now!
