I spoke with Matt before I made my purchase.
He told me the story of how Modern Spare started.
I’m a serious car guy and appreciate finding products that are useful and are what you expected them to be once they arrive.

Keep up the good work.

Comment on 2015-2019 Cadillac CTS Spare Tire Kit Options – All Trims, Including CTS-V by Chuck https://modernspare.com/product/2015-2018-cadillac-cts-sedan-wagon-coupe-complete-spare-tire-kit-all-trims-models-including-cts-v/#comment-5093 Fri, 16 Aug 2019 23:04:18 +0000 https://modernspare.com/?post_type=product&p=4582#comment-5093 Totally agree with high praise in review by James and others. My CTS-V Sport rides 100% better w/o the run-flats. This high-quality kit saved me the worry of putting together the right kit considering the staggered wheel sizes.
Lost a bit of trunk space but totally worth it to know that if in a remote area I can just take care of a change myself, get where I’m going and not worry about invalidating the quirky warranty terms on most run-flats.​
Thank you to Modern Spare for providing this alternative.

Comment on 2017-2019 Tesla Model 3 Spare Tire Kit Options by George L https://modernspare.com/product/2017-2018-tesla-model-3-complete-kit/#comment-5092 Fri, 16 Aug 2019 22:01:03 +0000 https://modernspare.com/?post_type=product&p=5480#comment-5092 I purchased the Modern Spare for our Tesla Model 3 with trepidation because of the cost and the lack of information on the company. In retrospect, I should not have been concerned. The transaction was easy, and the tire arrived much earlier than I had anticipated. Although the tire does take up a good portion of the trunk, I can still get two carryon bags and several tote bags in the trunk. Additionally, if I need the trunk space, I tested the area behind the driver’s seat for storage since we never have back seat passengers.
The packaging of the tire is unique in that everything is enclosed in a heavy vinyl container that has two different carrying straps—very impressive. All the tools are high quality. I tested the jack and it easily fit under the Tesla, although it was obvious that the car is heavy, and it took some effort to lift it high enough to take off a wheel.
I have not tested the tire on the road and hope that I never have to. Although the price is high, it is a good insurance policy and brings us peace of mind when going on cross country roads.
I would not hesitate to give the company and its product a 5-star rating.

Comment on 2013-2019 Cadillac ATS Spare Tire Kit Options by moden spare https://modernspare.com/product/2013-2018-cadillac-ats-complete-kit-all-trims/#comment-5079 Thu, 15 Aug 2019 21:29:39 +0000 https://modernspare.com/?post_type=product&p=5432#comment-5079 The spare tire is perfect and fits nicely in the trunk. I just got rid of my run-flat tires which gave a horrible ride and put on a set of Continental Touring tires which are wonderful!! So I need a spare tire. I will recommend your company to all.

Thank you again!.

Comment on 1968-1982 Chevrolet Corvette Spare Tire Kit Options by Ruby Jay https://modernspare.com/product/1968-1982-chevrolet-corvette-complete-kit-all-trims-2/#comment-5071 Thu, 15 Aug 2019 18:52:43 +0000 https://modernspare.com/?post_type=product&p=4666#comment-5071 It came and was extremely compact. We have not used it yet but placed it in the rear compartment behind the seats. We felt it was better than having to purchase the three components of an under car tire placement for a corvette…plus it seems you need to buy a lock so no one steals it. So the choice was simple for us. Thanks for the prompt delivery.

Comment on 2008-2019 Dodge Challenger Spare Tire Kit Options by James Semikoski https://modernspare.com/product/2008-2017-dodge-challenger-complete-kit-all-trims/#comment-5055 Thu, 15 Aug 2019 14:34:23 +0000 https://modernspare.com/?post_type=product&p=4691#comment-5055 I recommend them enthusiastically. OK, I’m old school, I don’t consider a car complete without a spare tire and jack, not that I’ve had many flats, it’s a peace of mind thing. The kit came faster than I expected. The very next day I tried it out to make sure it fit over my brakes. Everything fit and worked perfectly. Every component in the kit was well thought out and of excellent quality. You won’t need anything else. I won’t hesitate to but from them again.

This spare kit is great! The quality is good; came inflated and ready to use; fits perfectly as needed on a 19 Challenger 5.7L.
Mine does not fit in the trunk’s undercover compartment near battery, but I have no problem whatsoever simply placing it straight into the trunk of the car, back in the day that is exactly what they used to do in muscle cars from factory anyway :]
Good stuff.

Comment on 2013-2019 Cadillac ATS Spare Tire Kit Options by Roger Ahlf https://modernspare.com/product/2013-2018-cadillac-ats-complete-kit-all-trims/#comment-4892 Tue, 06 Aug 2019 00:44:17 +0000 https://modernspare.com/?post_type=product&p=5432#comment-4892 Around the first of July my girlfriend purchased a 2015 Cadillac ATS. I was not comfortable with her being on the road without a spare tire. I did some research and found the Modern Spare kit which I ordered through Amazon. I received the kit sooner than expected and was impressed. I placed the spare on the left front to check for clearance since the diameter is a little larger than the original tire. The spare went on with no problems and there was no rubbing when driven around the block. I was very impressed with the kit which included lug nuts to fit the spare. My only complaint is that it takes up so much room in the trunk. However I will put up with that inconvenience to have a spare in the event of a flat tire. I highly recommend this kit for any vehicle that does not include a spare tire.

Comment on 2008-2019 Dodge Challenger Spare Tire Kit Options by Michael Schlott https://modernspare.com/product/2008-2017-dodge-challenger-complete-kit-all-trims/#comment-4711 Mon, 22 Jul 2019 22:12:33 +0000 https://modernspare.com/?post_type=product&p=4691#comment-4711 Awesome kit. Even includes the hold down hardware. Unexpected pleasant surprise! Fits in the spare tire well in the trunk. I did a “Dry run” in my garage to make sure everything fit, and worked, before I have to find out the hard way on the side of the road someday. Everything fit, and worked well. The only exception was the fact that that neither of the included sockets fit the 7/8” factory lug nuts on my 2018 Challenger! Glad I discovered this in my garage, and not on the side of the road! Just tossed a 7/8 – 1/2 Drive socket in the trunk from my tool box. Problem solved. I feel much better now that I have an actual spare tire onboard, instead of the dime store compressor/tire sealant that came with the car. Highly recommend!
