The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically Your 2006-2013 (E70) BMW X5.
We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits to be the highest quality and best choice for your (E70, 2nd gen) BMW X5. Here is why:
Your BMW (E70) X5 may have factory-provided “run-flat” tires or are the recommended replacement tire type. These tires have now replaced the spare tire as the factory solution to tire failure while you’re traveling. Many X5 owners experience frustration with run-flat tires due to poor ride quality, poor expected wear and lifespan and, of course, the high cost of replacement.
We set out with specific design goals in mind when making spare tire kits for BMW models. All of which make the Modern Spare BMW X5 spare tire kit the best choice for your peace of mind. A Modern Spare tire kit provides you with choices. Choose the tires that perform the best, cost less, and wear longer. All this without the worry of facing a tire failure. If you experience a flat tire, simply mount your Modern Spare and go!
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 X5 performance and fuel economy 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 BMW, 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 car and lower it safely. We have carefully designed our jack to lift your car 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.
