The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically For 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 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 are much less than regular tires.
- If punctured then used without air pressure, these tires are seldom repairable and require a 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 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 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 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.
Since MINI, like many carmakers, is not providing a spare tire, we are determined to not just 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.
*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.
