My second hand STS-V has no spare tire. It appears one was never even in the trunk cavity. Curious, is the car supposed to have one if new from the OEM?

The current tires on the car are the Pirelli "Run-Flats", are these also the stock tires coming off an '06? that might explain the "no spare"......

Also, even with run flats, do you carry a spare anyways, personally?

Can anyone refer me to an online shop and compatible spare for the STS? .... guilty, spare shopping isn't my thing.

No spare. If u get 1. 50/50 chance it will work. Staggered wheels.

No spare, no jack, no self service wheel changing tools in the car . . . Car comes with run flats, the Pirellis you mention.

Due to the front wheels and tires being a different size to the rear wheels and tires, a spare is next to impossible to use . . . plus it would have to fit over the enormous Brembo brakes . . .

That's why mobsters like Caddy's .... LOTS of trunk room for those late night river deliveries of concrete shoes.... AND no spare tools, tires, jacks to have to clean afterwords....
