The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically Your BMW 5 Series (5th generation or E60)
We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits to be the highest quality and best choice for your BMW. Here is why:
Like many cars, BMWs now come equipped with “run-flat” type tires. As a spare tire alternative, many BMW owners find run-flat tires to have poor ride and handling quality. More importantly, they are very expensive to replace. Though run-flats perform their intended function in getting you to a repair shop without air pressure, these tires are seldom repairable and require replacement if then driven on for any significant distance. The Modern Spare solution allows you to replace your run-flat tires with more affordable and better performing conventional tires while still enjoying peace of mind as you travel.
To make your Modern Spare Kit incredibly simple to use, we designed an aluminum alloy wheel that is significantly lighter and more capable than a conventional steel counterpart. As a result, our spare wheel/tire combination is easier to handle. The low weight improves your BMW’s performance and fuel mileage when compared to a heavier full-sized spare. Also, to maintain excellent standards of quality, our alloy wheel meets or exceeds all the latest DOT highway safety standards. In addition, each spare wheel is equipped with a durable space-saving tire capable of traveling at highway speeds up to 81mph. The improved tire allows you to travel the needed distance to a repair shop you trust with your BMW.
To make our Spare Tire Kit better for your 5 series, we considered the frustrations that come with typical spare tire tools. As an example, most scissor jacks are difficult to use and do not provide the needed leverage to easily lift your car. We solved this problem by developing a custom, low-profile scissor jack with a unique ratcheting handle mechanism. This handle provides the required leverage to easily lift your 5 Series and lower it safely. We have carefully designed our jack to lift your BMW properly at the designated lift points.
If you find a stubborn or overtightened lug nut, our Modern Spare telescoping lug wrench provides nearly two feet of leverage. You’ll be able to easily remove and retighten your lug nuts to quickly get back on the road.
As a forethought, we included a full-size, thick plastic tire bag. Transporting a full-size flat tire and wheel can be messy. Therefore, placing the large plastic tire bag over the failed tire will help protect your car’s interior.
By now, you’re aware that your BMW 5 Series is missing a spare tire. BMW, like many carmakers are not providing this important lifesaver. Modern Spare wants to be the best manufacturer and provider of complete spare tire kits hands-down. We have approached our Modern Spare designs from every angle. This ensures that our customers have the best user experience possible with the best product possible. Please reach out to any of our helpful staff for questions and assistance.
