    Hey M5, great sales tactic using fear and all to sell you spare kit! Just kidding. These cars needed a spare anyway. The roads in Detroit are about the worst anywhere and so far I have had no tire issues.

    M5driverNY, a few questions...

    How much for the full kit?

    Can I buy the milled part separately? If so, how much for that part?

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    *I asked this previously but did not receive an answer from M5driverNY.

    Is that spare tire the one for the regular cts? looks exactly like what was equipped with my 2009 cts, the milled part you mentioned, does it happen to be the rim?

    I live in South Jersey and work in Philly. So many times over the years I have gone out to my car (not the V) to go home from work and my tire is low and it's a nail or a screw. Or driving on Philly roads, it's just your average 1/4" dia, 12" long steel rod! (one time)

    At one time, three of my tires on my Chevy had 1 plug in there and the other tire had two!

    I'm guessing, but I blame it on pick-up trucks on contractors who just throw any old thing in the bed of their trucks and never cover anything and never clean out their beds and these big, brand new (still shiny) nails and screws are in my tires.

    So when I get a flat, my method is to position car so nail/screw/rod is near the bottom side, jack the car to slightly above correct ride height, and then I use them cheap plugs. And I have a tire pump in the car too. So I never have to take the tire off and it's fixed in 15 minutes. (Yes, I know the controversy about these plugs.)

    But my above method is all fine and dandy, until I get a sidewall hole; and that's where your World's First and Finest "The Original!" CTS-V Spare Tire Kit comes in.

    Maybe one of the vendors should step up and take some business.

    I just bought a new front rim and tire to use as a temporary spare,if this thread was written a month ago,I would have held off in spending so much money. The tire is too big to fit in the trunk space and I really want that spare tire kit to make room in the trunk for other things.

    While I would love an update on this aftermarket product, I would like better for GM to come up with an official solution for us.

    C'mon GM/Cadillac! Pretty please? We know you listen to us.

    I am willing to PAY for a spare tire that fits.....

    ^^^

    +1, as evidenced by the fact that I'm willing to PAY for a kludged aftermarket solution now, and would quite likely STILL be willing to PAY for an official factory kit if/when it becomes available. Getting stranded somewhere with a flat that is not inflator-repair fixable is no bueno.
