The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically Your MINI Countryman.
We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits to be the highest quality and best choice for your MINI Countryman. Here is why:
Like many cars, the MINI Countryman is lacking a spare tire. Carmakers are choosing “Run-Flat” tires rather than providing a spare. These tires allow up to 50 miles of travel without air pressure in order to get you to safety. At first glance, run-flats seem like an ideal solution. In fact, many new cars, including models from BMW, Cadillac and others, come equipped with run-flats from the factory. So, why are run-flat tires not a perfect solution?
There are the common complaints of Run-Flat tires among car owners. These include:
- Replacement cost is significantly higher than non run-flat tires.
- Useful lifespan and tread wear is much less than regular tires.
- If punctured then used without air pressure, these tires are seldom repairable and require full replacement.
Modern Spare tire kits provide peace of mind as you travel. Each is designed to be the correct fit for your car and built with quality in mind.
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 Countryman’s 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 Countryman.
To make our Spare Tire Kit better for your MINI, 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.
Since MINI, like many carmakers, are not providing a spare tire, we are determined to not jusy provide a spare, rather 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.
