Finally got all of the pieces and parts together today to put a full size spare tire in the V. Thanks to the info and pics on CadillacFAQ.com and the members here in the forum. "Katrina" has a smile on her face :)

(now for exhaust and tune) :D


P.S. Wheel and tire came from Tirerack.com, the 18x8 Mille Miglia MM-S and a 245/45/18 w/ 6 lugnuts. Jack,Handle, tub insert, and parts from the dealership.

My Mille spare wheel just arrived a few days ago as well as my 4 new Falken Azenis RT-615 tires :sneaky: I'm going to take the best looking runcrap off the car and use it as my spare when I replace them with the Falkens in about 1000 miles.

If you don't mind me asking, how much was the jack/handle/tub insert setup from the stealership, and do you by any chance know the part #s? Thanks!

There was just another post regarding this that I believe was by lastss. It had a 3-D diagram of the jack/tub etc with part numbers. Run a quick search, it was perfect for what you're looking for.

Well, ran a search, trying to find the exact post I was referring to, but couldn't. I did, however, come across this post by Dreamin a while back that has a good deal of information that will speed up and ease the process for you to get your spare: http://cadillacforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=399820&postcount=20

http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/ Go to gmpartsdirect ... I got everything for under $100 (about $85, I believe). I put four Mille Miglias on and used one of the OEM wheels and tire (best one left) for the spare. It all fits just like dreamin' posted last summer and the pics above.:)

I'll have to look at the receipt when I get home to see if they listed one, can't remember. I only remember that they didn't charge me extra for them.:bouncy:

Do you by any chance know the thread pattern of our lug nuts? Is it 14 x 1.5?

The info I have says 12 x 1.5 , but the tech guys may be able to confirm it. (Sorry the reply took a bit I was a bonehead and didn't recheck thread.)
