Yes it clears the rear that was the easy part the front was the issue.
Guys I called all my support vendors on this and I will need 5+ guys interested with deposits to get this going for anyone. its too costly otherwise and I am not making a dime off this.
It will take me 7-10 days to get all the parts and stuff made etc before shipping.
Think about this, Onstar is great but when your stuck having this spare will be a lifesaver.
Wouldn't it be easier for you to provide a list of parts that we can order (wheel, jack, etc) while the board members give you a few dollars for the required milled part?
Also, regarding this milled part, what exactly does it do?

word 'em up. If U in the hardcore NY, then I gotta get at U based on this.
Very Cool work M5Driver
I might buy one.
First I need details on the wheel/tire brands & sizes. Did it require and cutting or drilling?
Anyone know if the BMW M3 bolt pattern is the same as the CTS-V? Below is a spare tire kit for $290 for a 19" rim. I think an M3 has some big brakes too but not as big as the V.
found this too for the C6 but pricey!

Vette Spare.com uses a narrowed Corvette 18" wheel and a Hoosier front runner tire. It might fit our cars but it would be an expensive experiment. I contacted the guy who runs Vette Spare. He would gladly narrow a CTS-V wheel to use for a spare. The problem is finding a narrow 19" tire.
The only car with a 19" compact spare I have been able to find is a Land Rover (and most of those come with full-size spares). Land Rover uses our 5x120 mm bolt circle. I found the wheel but no tire.
I am interested in a spare tire for my CTS-V. I have a friend with a CTS-V (who is not on the forum) who wants a spare also.
I'm very interested in this. How much of a deposit? Will you (or one of your vendors) do the milling work you mentioned on the spare wheel? I have no tools or skills for anything like that myself.... Thanks for sharing this, it's really a great solution!
The brass should seriously consider designing an OEM spare kit solution and offering it as an after-market accessory. If it was available, it would be in my garage right now!
