The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically For Your 2006-2018* 5th or 6th Generation BMW 3-Series
We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits to be the highest quality and best choice for your 3-Series. Here is why:
BMW models and many other cars now come equipped with “run-flat” type tires as alternatives to a spare tire. Many BMW owners find these tires to have poor ride and handling quality but more importantly, run-flat tires are very expensive to replace. Though they perform their intended function in getting you to a repair shop if you lose tire pressure, these tires are seldom repairable and require replacement if driven long distances without pressure. The Modern Spare solution allows you to replace your run-flat tires with more affordable and better-performing conventional tires while 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 the performance and fuel economy of your 3-series 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 with a DOT “M” speed rating indicating the tire is tested for a consent speed of 81mph. While it is wise to limit your speed to 50mph as some tire manufacturers state, we have chosen these “M” speed-rated tires knowing the tire’s strength and capability exceed that of normal use. This ensures that the tire is durable and well-built.
This, along with having the proper overall rolling diameter for your vehicle, will allow you to travel the needed distance to a repair shop you trust with your vehicle.
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 vehicle properly. Our jack head is specifically made for your BMW’s unique lift points.
If you find a stubborn or overtightened lug bolt, our Modern Spare telescoping lug wrench provides nearly two feet of leverage. You’ll be able to easily remove and retighten your lug bolts 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 is missing a spare tire. Like many carmakers, BMW is 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.
*The overall diameter of our spare tire and wheel combination is sized to be right and correct for your vehicle’s drivetrain. This is a critical design feature for proper function and use. As such, if your vehicle has an existing spare tire storage space, the spare may not fit in that space. Please consider our carrying case option as a convenient alternative.
