: Spare Tire for a V

04-11-12, 08:29 PM
Has anyone figured out what other makes compact spare will fit a CTS V six lug wheel. When I bought my car it didnt have run flats. I was given a CTS 5 lug compact spare tire and a jack kit and now the GM dealership is telling me GM doesnt make a compact spare for the CTS V. Some other cars spare must have the same lug patteren as the V ? Thanks

There is none. You don't want to use a compact spare on a car with limited slip anyway (at least on the rear).

The good news is that if you pull the plastic tub out of the tire well, a FULL SIZE wheel/tire will fit in there with the cover. You just have to put the face of the wheel down against the basin. Use a towel to keep it from getting scratched, or get an old wheel like I did and don't worry about it.

I'm using the 18x8" Mille Miglia wheel with a 225/50-18. Fits in the trunk with the lid flush, though barely. And the jack tub you have fits inside fine.
