Question Spare tire ?

I thought I would make this thread a little more generic.

What are you guys running the 5x130mm stud pattern using for a spare tire ?

Please let me know where you are storing the spare and what mods you may have done to store it.

I know I can only fit a 15x4.5 spare in my standard's spare tirewell.

I never thought of that !

Where do you put an 18x10 with 265/35 when you have to change it ?!?

Hello-

I went the el-cheapo route. I got an old 5-lug 356 rim (4.5x15) for $25 and put a 165 tire on it for $0. You could even put an original bias-ply tire on it and make it fit in a Ghia spare tire well (even 165 is too big for a Ghia's space).

Take care,

What size spare do you need if you are running 993TT brakes?

I had saved a 4,5x15 Fuchs to use as a spare, but no model Fuchs (not even 16") fits my Brembo brakes on the front... So I left the spare out all together! Saves weigth too. After that I decide to put the battery in the front on the floor, so now a spare doesn't fit anymore anyway.
My cell phone is much lighter than a spare if I would ever got a flat tire (has never happened tho).

'Looks like a pink pug 1.9gti wheel to me!

Standard 944T spare' is it not? But what year?

Can anyone confirm this will indeed fit in the 'well of a Super?

I may have found one. Please?

Matt

Measure the diameter of the tire well, then you'll have the maximum size fitment and can compare spares.

I have a question about a spare wheel, but I don't want to have to start a new thread...
I have CB dropped king/link discs up front and was wondering if anyone knows if a 5.5 x 15 space saver rim with a 165 from an old 911 will spin with out interfering with the caliper? My first thought is yes because they are vw parts and they aren't "big reds".
Thanks

My solution is a porsche 996 spare tyre. It's a inflatable type but fully inflated it will fit the sparetyre well very nice!!!!! Forgot to say it's a 17 inch rim.
