    I received my tire kit today.
    Was suprised to see tire not mounted to rim.
    I will go to tire store today & get it mounted.
    Soon as I get a chance I will post some photos of the kit.

    Wow, already?? Fast work, Luke. Barry, Luke told me on the phone that it was shipped unmounted and that I would have to have the tire mounted on the rim when it arrives. I guess he forgot to mention that to you. Some sort of shipping safety requirement or something.

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Is it possible to get a full size spare? Would it fit in the storage area?

    Of course.

    If you mean the "hidden" storage compartment under the floor, no it won't fit. And if you mean the cargo area, yes a full size spare would fit...but there wouldn't be much room for anything else.

    Should have been more specific. I meant can you get a full size tire with the kit instead of the donut? Obviously you can always buy a full size spare. And yes, I meant the "hidden" storage compartment. I hate it when they don't leave enough room for a full size spare... Who would want to lug around a spare tire in the cargo area? Thanks for the info!

    There's no way a full size wheel and tire will fit under the floor.

    I received my spare kit today. It looks like it will be a PITA to put in there. I knew I shoulda bought that Equinox.

    Handy tip:

    Remove the sliding shade from the cargo area before starting (push down the two little tabs on the edges, then lift it out).

    Once that's out, open the cargo area lid on the floor- notice the little plastic "hook" on the end of a string? Unclip that from the lid and use it to hang the cover from the upper edge of the tailgate opening (where the rubber weatherstrip is) so you aren't fighting to keep that open while you put the spare in.

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Thanks! Appreciate the advice, though I have decided to leave the spare in the garage unless I'm going on a road trip. Then I'll probably just toss it in the back with my suitcases. Problem solved. (I am stowing the jack in the sekrat storage area.)

    My hubby took the spare to have it mounted on the rim today. The goober at Discount Tire told him "she must have them run-flat tires."

    I'm doing exactly as you are as I don't want to lose the storage area, etc.
