For all you non-runflat tire users... an elegant Jack solution... it ain't the cheapest, but it's the easiest and guaranteed to work...

I use a stock wheel and bald RF as a spare. I cleaned it WELL... cuz I figured I'll be heading to a wedding in a tux when I get a flat :o Insert the tire "upside down":

Factory Jack/Handle/Container in place - use "big factory wingnut" to secure

With the tire upside down, the lid fits fine.

And, there are cut-outs in the fairings for the factory jack!

This is GREAT stuff for those of us contemplating life post-runflat. :bouncy: Wasn't lasstss (or someone) evaluating the use of a CTS spare saver spare, too? :confused: I think there was an adaptor to go from 6 to 5 lugs involved but clearance with the caliper was an issue yet-to-be-resolved. :suspense:

I tried a SRX 17" space saver (6 lug). Would not clear the calipers.

This is great information! I have been lugging my floor jack around. I have one Q, is the lug wrench incorporated into the jack handle or do you still need to buy one (I actaully already had a 19mm 4 way, but took it from one of my other cars)?

You'll need the jack handle because my jack from them (ordered it before this thread) didn't have the handle. It isn't the cheapest option but like dreamin said, it is easy and guaranteed to work. It also looks stock.

Dreamin

Yes, jack handle doubles as lug wrench (fits stock lug nuts), and as Dave said, you need the handle to work the jack.

I ordered the "required" stuff and maybe one nut I didn't need and the total was something like $80. Or 1.4 tanks of gas these days. :) Not so bad.

If you type in "spare" into the search, that page does not show up :hmm:

I know.. That search sucks... Sorry... You can google search the FAQ.

After I finish clubcts.com I will fix that search.

Just out of curiosity, why is part number 12 "not needed?" Is something similar already below our divided bin?

What's the part number for #1?

This [not needed] crap is only one point of view... I need it. :)

#12 is a piece of molded foam that fits in the well and the the space saver tire fits into it.

Dreamin
11-30-05, 11:34 PM
Sorry Stealth... didn't get the pn for #1... if someone hadn't lost or busted their original piece :banghead:

OldDawg: Were you planning on getting the space saver tire that fits into #12 :banghead: :banghead:

Dreamin, I'm all set to order but noticed that the nut (#5) is "not needed" but in the instructions it says to hold all in place with "big factory wingnut" . . . is there another part? Thank you again, this was a great find!

Sorry .. little slow on my response.

No. I was just pointing out to RobzBlkV what item #12 was. When I had a CTS I pulled out the space saver tire and put a full size tire in. Same thing as you are doing with the extra V rim now, except with the base CTS the jack/lugnut wrench were already there. Might even find everything you need if you find a wrecked CTS in a dismantler's yard, rather than ordering the individual parts.

I think I noticed in the 06's that there is a plastic divider piece in the area where the spare goes, almost looked molded in, I sure hope that can be removed.

Kadonny, it does come out; a bit heavy (it has a metal bar through the center on the underside) but easy to remove.

I said not needed because you should already have that part... it holds the factory plastic divider in place... if you dont have that "big wingnut" (you can see it in my second pic)... then you'll need to order it, it does hold everything down.

thanks, Dreamin; I have it and now I understand . . . no more wingnut questions from me...

Sorry for bringing back a 5 year old post, but I thought others would be interested to know that the jack, part # 25740573 was replaced by part # 13500358 according to GMPD.

i was curious as to how to keep the finish from rubbing off the spare rim since it's mounted face down?

after my experience with gmpartsdirect i will never order from them again.

do you know how to protect the spare from rim damage while it's face-down in the trunk cavity?

i don't know right off hand a solution that would work perfectly, but i would start by trying different things
cardboard would probably be the first thing i tried

the thing is, i would be using one of my winter wheels as a spare in the summer and a summer wheel as a spare in the winter, which means I don't want to take the chance on messing up the wheel cosmetically and having one nasty wheel per set. i guess until I buy a dedicated spare it's a can of fix-a-flat for me...
