Description

The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically For Your 2015-2023 Mercedes GLC.

Models Include: GLC350, GLC350e 4Matic, GLC300 and GLC300 4matic and all 2015-2021 GLC variants.

We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits to be the highest quality and best choice for your Mercedes GLC.  Here is why:

“Run-Flat” Tires-

Like many cars, Mercedes models now come equipped with “run-flat” type tires. Run-flats are the carmaker’s choice as a spare tire alternative. So why are so many unhappy with this choice?

  • Many Mercedes owners find run-flat tires to have a poor ride and handling quality.
  • Besides having wear ratings half of a normal tire’s lifespan, they are very expensive to replace.
  • Run-flats perform their intended function in getting you to a repair shop without air pressure, but most often need full replacement if used without air pressure.

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. You can choose the best performing, best-wearing, and best-priced tire for your money without fear of being stuck on a roadside. 

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 GLC’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.

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 lift your car easily. 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 GLC 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.

*Available wheel spacer options for AMG 63 or GLC models with AMG upgraded brakes requiring more brake caliper clearance. For guidance, please contact us.

Your Mercedes GLC has space under the floor of the rear cargo area. In most instances, the spare will fit nicely in this space without issue while in some GLCs, the space is not large enough for the floor to latch closed perfectly. Please consider the carrying case option. In the event that your GLC does not have adequate room, the spare can be kept in the main cargo area utilizing the carrying case. We have yet to identify which GLC models will allow under-floor storage as this is not simply identified by a model year designation. The spare dimensions are 29 inches by 6 inches.

1 review for Fits All 2015-2023 Mercedes GLC Models- Spare Tire And Compete Accessory Kit Options

  1. Michael P Molzahn (verified owner)

    I have a 2019 Mercedes GLC300 RWD SUV. The spare tire kit fits perfectly under the floor cover of the rear storage area. The spare is tight to the fuse box cover but it did not crush and the rear storage area cover latches with no issues. Also, arrived much sooner than i anticipated. I’m much happier with a full size spare and my GLC300 rides smoother, quieter and handles better with a good set of standard (non run flat) tires!!

The Modern Spare Advantage...

Engineered

There is no such thing as a “universal” Spare tire and wheel

It is critically important the spare tire you choose is designed and engineered specifically for your make, model and year. Carmakers are always changing, redesigning and improving the performance and efficiency of the vehicles they offer. These changes, although sometimes minor, must be considered carefully in spare tire design.

So Many factors are considered

Modern Spare engineers each spare kit specifically for the vehicle model and year it is made for. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your Modern Spare is right for your vehicle.

Lightweight

More than being lightweight

Let’s be honest, changing a spare tire is not fun. We understand this first-hand and who wants to eagerly venture out in the cold weather or blazing sun to change a flat? So, we simplified it. A narrow space-saving spare tire can be so much better than what carmakers used to provide.
We took our carefully engineered wheel design and partnered with a state of the art aluminum alloy wheel manufacturer. Each kit is purpose-built to be both lightweight and extremely durable. Also, each spare tire and wheel we offer is carefully engineered to be the right and correct fit for your car.

Durable and Strong

By utilizing a lightweight alloy wheel, the Modern Spare ® is 35% lighter than its steel counterpart. We engineered our lightweight wheel and tire to be tough and durable enough to travel farther than typical spare tires allow.* The combined effect of being tough and lightweight makes changing a flat tire much less strenuous in addition to providing peace of mind as you travel.

Ease Of Use

Getting back on the road should be easy

Changing a flat should be quick and easy. We achieve this by including purpose-built tools into every Modern Spare kit. The goal is to get you back on the road quickly. The TruLift scissor jack system promises to be the most simple and effective small jack that you will ever use. Thanks to its leveraged ratcheting system, our TruLift jack system requires just minimal effort to raise your vehicle and bring your car down safely.

Having the right tools

Stubborn lug nuts can add stress to an already stressful situation. We have included a telescoping breaker-bar style lug wrench. Our compact wrench features an extendable handle to provide optimal leverage. Even the most stubborn lug nuts are removed and reinstalled easily. Finally, since a flat tire is a dirty tire, we had the forethought to include a large plastic tire bag in each kit. You can now protect your car’s interior while transporting your flat to the repair shop.​

Extended Range

The old way…

Traditional spare tires once provided by carmakers typically had a limited range of fewer than 50 miles. The range limit is due to the cost savings of manufacturing a small limited-use spare tire. Likewise, these typical factory-supplied spares have a much smaller rolling diameter compared to the vehicle’s factory tire size. Using a spare that is so much smaller than your factory tires can put extra strain on the vehicle’s drivetrain and will often lead to failure if used for travel over the stated limit.

The new way…

Our kit is designed to better match the rolling diameter of your vehicle’s factory tires. This prevents excess strain on your vehicle’s drivetrain. Also, if the situation requires, this allows you to travel farther than the limited 50-mile range of old spare tires.* Each Modern Spare kit comes equipped with an actual reinforced tire for a more useful travel distance and at more normal highway speeds. With the right size spare tire, you can more easily complete your trip or travel to a repair shop of your choice. Whether you have AWD, a limited-slip differential, or a locking differential, our kit is safe for the sophisticated drivetrain of your car.
