Just in case you didn't know the 2008 CTS does not come with a spare tire or a jack. Only a can of tire-inflater. If you want the donut spare and a jack, it's 250.00 extra.:eek:

Wow spare tire?
I got my cts 2008, and reading my vehicle details 'standard mechanical' listing its says 'COMPACT SPARE TIRE' included. I dont understand.

The 08 I test drove the other day also had the spare and jack included at $250. I remember years ago when Toyota would sell you a truck w/out a bumper, extra $$ if you wanted it. A full size spare and jack should be included, JMHO.

EDMAN, check your window sticker. I'll bet you have a 250.00 charge for it. The Cadillac website, the '08 CTS brochure, and my salesman all say "no spare or jack included".

Its not just a Canadian thing most likely just a change in standard equipment by GM. I think its a good idea. How many people on average really ever use the spare tire? some might but the average person would call RA.

you find that many autos are beginning to offer the spare as an option going with the inflator and goo bottle only these days......cost savings, design savings, etc......

isnt that why they have RA and AAA these days anyway.....have had to use the inflator and bottle on our other car...and it works like a champ....the tire repair places hate you..because they have to clean the goo out of the tire before they can patch it......most simply try to sell a new tire vice cleaning it out.....
