    Nice find. Now all we need to know is which wheel can clear the front rotor.

    It's a bit more work, but I don't mind swapping the rear tire to the front and putting the spare on the back. Just as long as I'm able to limp home!

    $720 including shipping is a bit steeper than I expected.

    It sure is steep, but having peace of mind is far more priceless than having to worry about what time roadside assistance will arrive. And where the nearest tire shop that has the right size tire is. IMHO it is better to pay for the spare tire now then have headaches, aggrevation and wasted time later.

    From the description it is unclear to me whether the tire is mounted on the wheel. It's got to be.

    So who is going to buy one?

    I wish it was a $100 cheaper!

    HEDP-V - Obviously I agree with the merits of having a spare tire. It's the asking price that I disagree with.

    I'd be fine with just buying the appropriate sized wheel and the G8 tire emergency kit (link posted above). I figure that will run me about $400 maximum.

    I'm not sure I can justify the other $320.

    The auction basically says that if we organize a group purchase, that the price would come down... by how much, who knows?

    But I'm down if there are others who want to organize a group buy.

    So what is the secret to the EBay kit? Is that a custom-made wheel?

    I do not believe the wheel is custom made, but I do believe that they machine the hub (and possible the interior of the wheel surface?) to ensure it can fit on and around the rotors.

    Wow. Welcome to America, where profit is king.

    I'd participate in a group buy if there were details.

    And I hope GM eventually comes up with an official solution for us.

    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?
    The tire appears smaller in diameter than the stockers--any problems with traction control kicking in or complaining? Should probably take it easy when it's on the rear to keep the LSD from overheating...

    I'm in for a group buy, too, but it sure better be cheaper than the ebay price. Ouch.
