    I would be interested in a spare tire and mounting hardware. I already have the pump, jack and sockets from my previouse Vette's (Zo6's)

    100% agree. The GM brass should have offered this in the first place, at minimum, as an option. Their attitude that people don't need a spare tire is completely, totally, WRONG. I don't know what focus group they talked to when developing our V, but it must not have included enough real-world users in markets with awful roads like Cleveland, Chicago, and New York. Heck, I visit Detroit all the time and the roads are as bad or worse than in Cleveland! You'd a thunk that a spare tire was still useful there at least.

    (Sorry for the slight upset, I'm still crying over Cleveland's loss of LeBron.)

    The brass should give M5DRIVERNY a lifetime supply of tires for the V and his Camaro!


    Again M5DRIVERNY, thank you very much!!!!!!

    What does this kit include? Is it all the parts or just the parts that you have to mill?

    May I suggest you just sell the milled part and let us round up the rest of the parts on our own using the list that you provide.

    How much do you want for the kit? How much for just the part you have to mill?

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Ryan,

    One word, R&D cost.

    Frankly, I would prefer NOT to scramble around looking for parts.

    I would like to go to 1 place, make 1 decision, pay one invoice.

    M5, I will buy the tire kit in a heart beat as soon as its available. I totally agree with CBLOVEDAY and ANONFRANk on GM having a spare tire option. All the roads and infrastructure in the U.S are in need of repair, and having a spare tire in the trunk of your V is a valuable asset to have. Especially when you have to go to work on time and can not wait for roadside assistance to show up 2 hours later, and your boss is a jerk who doesn't like you because you have a CTS-V and he doesn't. M5DRIVERNY, please advise us on price,S&H and also if there is a way to pick up directly if you live in the NY/NJ/PA/CONN area. THANX for posting this thread and taking the time for researching and developing the kit. OUTSTANDING INITIATIVE! JOB WELL DONE!

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

    Guys well today the SPARE was a total lifesaver and I got to use it. I recently came back from vacation and noticed on the 5 hour drive home the TPMS of one wheel showing 3 PSI low I assumed it was odd so I tighten the valve stem and the needle in the valve when I arrived home last Tuesday.

    Few days passed and everything seems ok. Well today I was with one of my guys from work and we are heading up north about 78 miles. I noticed the car was starting to drift badly to the right after an hour into the drive. I didn't get any vibrations or TPMS warnings at all then Wham the right rear tire just gave out. I was fortunate to have a decent shoulder and help and in 10 minutes flat we were on the way. I had a local service station take a look before the ride home. New tire on order. There was a long nail on the inside of the edge of the shoulder block near the sidewall. The service shop said the tire heated up and caused the sidewall to give way or something

    saved my day today with a very important business meeting we could have missed.

    Also the guys who will be listing the kit on Ebay said they will get it on by Friday they were just slammed with work and the kid who does the listings has been out sick. hang tight guys. So far this is the 3rd tire nail incident on my CTSV since delivery which is getting annoying. I never had such issues on any other car before. Anyone else have tire issues in the Tri State?

    Hell yes. Had to replace both fronts because of bubbles. Potholes are unavoidable here. Looking forward to this spare tire kit.
