: Fix-a-flat = Standard Feature

Well at least on the new Grand Prix GXP. They use different tire sizes front and rear (wider ones on the front by the way). The wheels are 18s, I forgot the tire size. No spare. They can't even carry an extra full size spare in the trunk because it would only fit 1/2 the wheels. The answer is On Star or cell phone if it is real bad. I found this on the clubgp website. Does this seem screwed up to anyone else? Alright, I'm considering using the fix-a-flat for when I replace my EMTs with regular tires, but not as a standard feature. I will probably just go with the extra spare rim/tire in the trunk, because I don't know if I'm going to let On Star do their "market research" on me after the first year.

Definitely go with the tire/rim in the trunk if you're going away from the run-flats. The full size can basically fit underneath the trunk carpet. I took the best of the original run-flat for the spare and stuck it under there. Don't forget the jack and lug wrench. I went with GS/D3's and, including a Migilia rim for the spare, still spent about $300 less than 4 EMTs.

Wait a minute here - how did you get the spare to fit under the rug/cardboard cover? I've got about 1/2 inch too much wheel/tire in the well to snug down the cover.

A little carving here and there. I got it down to about 1/8" and am ok with that.
