*What is a “B Stock” spare tire?
When we have a wheel that suffers minor scratches or has blemishes, we will offer these as our “B Stock” spare tires and spare tire kits with a $20 discount. Take advantage of this opportunity to save. In spite of the imperfections in the wheel finish, all other components (tire, jack, tools, etc) are not “B Stock” items and the spare tire kits will have the same fitment guarantee as any kit offered by Modern Spare.
The condition of these wheels will vary with some having more noticeable blemishes than others. We are unable to provide specific details of each wheel but you can be assured there is nothing with our B stock options that affect functionality.
The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically For Your 2017-2023 (7th generation or G30) BMW 5 Series.
We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits are the highest quality and best choice for your BMW 5 Series. Here is why:
Like many cars, BMWs now come equipped with “run-flat” type tires. As a spare tire alternative, many BMW 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.
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 BMW 5 series 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 BMW, 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 vehicle properly. Our jack head is specifically made for your BMW’s unique 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.
And something worth noting, modern vehicles have very specific lift points for proper jack placement. More importantly, your vehicle requires a specific jack type to properly lift the car. In other words, the type of head on the jack is critically important for proper use, whereas a typical generic or universal jack will simply not do. We design our scissor jacks in-house and specific to each make and model we support.
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 5 Series is missing a spare tire. BMW, like many carmakers, is 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.
