Engineered Spare Tire Kits: Much More Than Meets The Eye
For your Tesla Model 3, Modern Spare offers the ideal Engineered Spare Tire.
We designed this spare from the ground up specifically for your Tesla Model 3 and made it fully compatible with all Model 3 versions, including Performance Models.
Our proprietary Lightweight Alloy Wheel features an industry-leading, and very specific weight and strength capacity. The weight capacity of a wheel is only part of the equation. In order to achieve sufficient wheel strength under typical driving conditions our alloy wheel design is the result of careful research into Tesla vehicles and how they are built.
A spare tire and wheel must handle the strain and abuse of a heavy electric vehicle. When choosing a spare tire for your Tesla, do not cut corners by settling for a spare with a much lower weight and strength capacity.
While on the subject of critical design features, only Modern Spare’s light alloy wheel is engineered with a proper offset ensuring the correct centering stance for your Tesla and avoiding undue wheel bearing stress.
“More than meets the eye” means more than having a nice-looking spare tire that “fits” your car’s bolt pattern. It means designing a spare with proper specifications that often go unnoticed.
The Modern Spare wheel and tire assembly for the Tesla Model 3 features a compact Continental Brand Radial tire. The spare comes with the tire mounted and ready to use.
With this superior DOT-rated radial tire and its high weight and strength capacity, you can easily travel beyond the typical 50-mile range limit of most spare tires. Just like having a wheel with the proper weight and strength rating, having the right tire matters.
The design team at Modern Spare identifies the ideal tire size and diameter for the drive train of your Model 3. Regardless of the wheel size or style on your Model 3, we’ve done the work so you’re good to go.
The Right Tools For Your Tesla When You Need Them Most-
We may build the best spare tire on planet Earth (and Mars too if Elon’s plans work out), but if you can’t install it, we have failed.
As mentioned, EVs are among the heaviest vehicles on the road.
Each complete spare tire kit from Modern Spare features a rigid 4000 lb (2-ton) low-profile scissor jack. Your Model 3 needs the right capacity jack without exception. When your Tesla is raised and has a wheel removed, do not support your Model 3 with a lower-capacity jack. Seriously, please don’t.
Furthermore, our proprietary jack design features the proper contact point to maintain a low-clearance profile. This is critical for the jack to fit under your vehicle with a flat tire. This is a common but often unnoticed issue with high-performance vehicles. Finding out your jack doesn’t fit when you have a flat is no fun.
As critical as having a good jack, stubborn lug nuts can stop you cold during a tire change. Your complete kit includes a high-leverage and compact lug wrench set designed to fit four different lug nut sizes and easily remove the most stubborn, over-tightened lug nuts.
In short, with Modern Spare, it’s about having what you need when you need it most.
Compact and Lightweight- Fun Fact, Looking Nice Was By Accident.
On a final note, how did Modern Spare tackle the job of building the ideal spare for your Model 3?
It comes down to asking the key questions, such as this-
“If we designed and built a Tesla Electric Vehicle, what spare tire would we build to match it?”
Thankfully, Elon and Tesla already built the cars, so we only had to focus on the spare.
Answering the key questions is evident in how we design our wheels.
Using sophisticated engineering software and in conjunction with one of the world’s most respected alloy wheel manufacturers, we built in the highest strength standards possible while keeping the wheel compact and under 18 lbs.
The result is an attractive but ultra-strong alloy wheel designed first for function. Having the wheel look nice happened to be good luck on our part.
With our unique design, the jack and tool assembly can be stored easily within the wheel, maintaining a low 6-inch profile when laid flat. You retain precious cargo space in your Tesla and still enjoy peace of mind as you travel.
Quite a remarkable accomplishment for sure, and our precisely engineered and unique design keeps the entire kit light, easy to use, durable, and fully compatible with all Model 3 trim levels.
Ask the right questions, set high standards, and build it right.
