I own a 2019 Camaro ZL1 1LE. I daily drive it and take trips in it across the country sometimes. So I don’t have to wait on road side assistance this will get me back on the road quicker so I’m able to make it to my destination in time. It would have been nice if the factory would have put a spare tire in the car to begin with but it is what it is. It takes up some of the trunk space but honestly in a Camaro the trunk is not that great to haul stuff in to begin with. It’s super nice having that piece of mind when traveling.

Saved me from a tow off the Parkway where Tesla RA was restricted. I bought this kit months ago and all I can say is…worth every penny. I was able to change the wheel out in probably me record time due to the amazing calculations that was put into the provided tool. It’s just amazing.

I’ve had my Modern Spare Model S spare tire kit for well over a year. I was in a remote area of Indiana a few weeks ago when a low tire pressure alert appeared on my screen. I pulled over and discovered a road hazard had caused a gash in my tire. I tried my Slime repair kit, which only resulted in green slime coming out of the gash. I contacted roadside assistance, and they had trouble locating anyone to come out and help. I opened my Modern Spare kit and everything was right there, including very detailed instructions. It did not take long, and I was back on the road. The quality of the tools and spare are outstanding. I drove on the spare for over two weeks while waiting for a new set of tires to come in. The spare performed beautifully in all circumstances.

The Modern Spare Advantage...

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.

So, why Is My Car Missing A Spare Tire?

Few things are as stressful as a flat tire.  Especially as you’re traveling along a remote and desolate highway. Not a great time to discover a spare tire is nowhere to be found in your new car.  Surprisingly, more than ⅓ of all car models sold today, are not equipped with that little lifesaver.

So, why are so many car manufacturers not providing a spare tire?

Car manufacturers are finding new ways to reduce weight and reduce costs. Removing the spare is simply one way to accomplish this.  Of course, this requires reliance on spare tire alternatives.  Unfortunately, the common alternatives you’re left with are barely adequate at best.  

What “solutions” are carmakers leaving you with?

Inflator Kit

– Inflator kits are one of car manufacturer’s current substitute for a spare tire. However, inflator kits are extremely limited in the damage that they can repair.  Using the inflator along with the sealant is only effective on simple nail-type punctures that are clean through the center of the tire tread.  With sidewall damage from curb strikes and potholes, or complete blowouts, these inflator/sealer kits are of no help.  The sealant in these kits can also damage tire-pressure monitoring systems. Some replacements ranging up to $300 – $400 apiece.  Modern Spare designs and sells spare tire kits engineered specifically for your car. Our kits are a modern solution and a vast improvement over the factory-supplied solutions. We offer spare tire kits for many GM, Dodge/Chrysler, and all Tesla models with many more makes and models being introduced soon.
