The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically Your Tesla Model X
We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits to be the highest quality and best choice for your Tesla Model X. Here is why:
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 Tesla’s performance and driving range 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 Model X.
To make our Spare Tire Kit better for your Tesla, 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 Model 3 and lower it safely. We have carefully designed our jack to lift your Tesla properly at the designated lift points. In addition, the Modern Spare TruLift scissor jack can be used without the use of a jack puck. For the Model X complete kits, the 4000 lb jack comes standard to accommodate the heavier weight of this vehicle.
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.
By now, you’re aware that your Tesla is missing a spare tire. Tesla, 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.
** Rear Brake Clearance
Your Tesla Model X may have modifications that include larger rear brake calipers in the production years of 2017 and newer. This applies to all Model X vehicles with option code X025 built on or after May 8, 2017. For some (not all) models in these prodcution years, the rear caliper is designed with the parking brake integrated into the regular brake caliper. This larger single caliper requires more clearance than Models with the two smaller seperate calipers.
If you experience a failed rear tire, there are two installation solutions:
- You can choose a kit that inlcudes a bolt-on type wheel spacer designed for the rear of your Model X. This spacer provides the needed clearance for the rear brakes and is mounted to your Model X before mounting the spare.
- Alternatively, without the use of the spacer, a double tire change would be necessary. This involves mounting the spare tire/wheel on the front of your Model X and replacing the failed rear tire with the front factory wheel.
The best way to determine whether this applies to your Model X is by simply looking at your rear brakes (no need to remove the rear wheels). If your Tesla Model X has two distinct brake calipers on each rear rotor, you will not need a spacer and the Modern Spare wheel will fit without issue. If there is one single rear brake caliper on each rear wheel, the additional clearance is needed and a kit with a spacer is recommended.
