    And if anyone needs convincing that the spare tire kit is intended for non-US markets, here's the caution sticker that was included with the kit!

    Thanks!

    Nice job documenting the procedure. The strap you mention is for the flat tire! Ya gotta secure that big wheel and rim somewhere and hold it in place in case of a panic stop.........
    You can use the chrome cargo hooks.

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Ordered my ST Kit a few weeks ago (Again props to Lindsay for super fast shipping . . arrived 2 days later).

    Finally got around to installing it this past weekend. We spent the weekend at my parents house so I threw the kit in the back before heading out there. We went out Sat morning with our tool box and anticipating a long complicated job.

    15 minutes later, and no sweat stains . . . . kit was fully installed. Piece of cake, and that's coming from ME . . someone with no skills when it comes to automobiles!

    Hopefully I never need the spare. But it will be a good feeling in December on our trip from NY to Florida and back . . . knowing we won't miss our cruise due to a blow out with no dealers open at night for replacement and no spare.

    Instead of buying vacation insurance for our cruise . . .I purchased vacation insurance with a spare tire kit!

    Thanks Lindsay for a super price! And Great service.

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Does a full size wheel with tire fit in that space?

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    I can't say I've tried to put a full-size spare there, but I highly doubt it would fit.

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    You might try a junk yard or salvage depot as they like to be called today. I have bought many things from "New" crash cars that have been considerably below dealer cost. Something like a spare kit in a protected area like the rear storage compartment will not be affected by a frontal crash. Also there are many many emergency use only spares at the junk yards. Just make sure that they will fit your SRX and then take it with you when traveling on a long desolate trip. Don't forget the lug wrench and the jack. The last time I checked on one it was $50 for the tire. I had a Porsche 930 and it had the donut spare but it came deflated for space concerns. It also came with a compressor but was backed up with a can of inflater/flat fix. I live in an urban area but if I lived in a rural or remote area like many parts of Canada I would definitely have the spare kit. Can you imagine calling the Cadillac road side service on your SATELLITE phone in the Northwest Territory??

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Do you still have the kits in stock? I noticed this post is from July 2011. How much are they? How do I order one?
    Thanks

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Ordered my spare tire kit today from Lindsay Cadillac. $385.00 plus shipping. Thanks Luke, the transaction couldn't have been easier. I wish your dealership wasn't all the way across the country, I would definitely take my SRX there for service.

    Where spare tires usually go... under the cargo area ... that's where the inflator kit currently resides

    Re: Srx spare tire kit

    Many thanks to Luke at Lindsay Cadillac in Alexandria, Virginia. Both for keeping the spare tire kits in stock, at a resonable price, and for the prompt shipping. Kudos!
    I ordered my kit late last Friday and it arrived this morning (Wednesday). After I went to the local tire shop to have the tire mounted ($5), the install went very smoothly. Install time was about 30 minutes.
    As noted previously in the forum, the spare tire is a factory option for the FWD SRX. When I ordered my AWD SRX last Fall, there were a few AWD SRXs on the dealer lot that had a factory option spare tire. But when I ordered mine, the spare tire option on the AWD was on restriction and therefore not available. I still do not know why it is not available, but I am guessing that is related to mass/fuel economy issues.
    We love to travel in Northern Canada and wanted the spare tire. There also are some places in lower Michigan that do not have cell phone coverage. Better safe than stranded! I didn't think the tire sealer is the solution I wanted to rely on.
    If you are on the fence about getting a spare, just do it. Fairly low cost and easy install. Yes, you do lose some storage space, but you gain peace of mind!
