The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically Your 2013-2021 Mercedes GLA Class. 

We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits to be the highest quality and best choice for your Mercedes GLA 250 or any GLA Class model.  Here is why:

“Run-Flat” Tires-

Like many cars, Mercedes models now come equipped with “run-flat” type tires. As a spare tire alternative, many GLA Class 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.

Our Design-

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 Mercedes GLA Class 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 Mercedes.

Better Tools-

To make our Spare Tire Kit better for your Mercedes, 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.

Our Goal-

By now, you’re aware that your GLA Class is missing a spare tire. Mercedes, 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.

    We bought a 2019 GLA 250 4MATIC used thinking all we had to do is buy a spare (car salesman pitch). It has a compartment that looks like it was meant to hold a spare which sounded reasonable. When I started researching spares I found that this vehicle is not meant to have a spare because it has run flat tires and that spares wouldn’t fit in the compartment. No spare won’t cut it for traveling in the western U.S. (or anywhere) in my opinion. I had a slightly smaller donut (T125/70-18 ) from another Mercedes so I tried to fit it in the compartment. It fit by forcing it under the rear trim molding, but I thought the T135/80-18 would fit if I modified the trim piece. I found the Modern Spare option, ordered it, trimmed a portion from the bottom of the trim (that doesn’t even show), and the spare tire, jack and tools fit great and the lid closes flush and latches. I tried out the jack and the spare fit great. All products are well made and sturdy. I chose the tire because it can be driven longer distances as necessary and at higher speeds. But, be aware that if you have a flat, the flat tire won’t fit in the compartment.
