Details

This Micro Spare Tire is a space saver! It is a perfect replacement to a lost or worn factory space saver spare tire for your MINI Cooper. For those Cooper S owners who want a bit of security while on their driving adventures, this will get you out of a pickle - no doubt. You will, however, look totally hilarious driving down the road with this little spare. It's better than sitting at the side of the road looking helpless, though, so cheer up!

For those who motor without run-flat tires (in my opinion, they make driving nearly unbearable), this is one the best ways to get yourself back on the road in good time. Perfect for temporary fixes to get you out of a bind. While it will eat up some of your trunk space, it will surely be worth it in the event you actually have to use it. MINI never included a spare tire in the Cooper S models because they put run flat tires on all Cooper S models which has some benefits but in my opinion is outweighed (pun intended) by the other issues like weight, harsh ride due to thicker sidewall, and an overall disconnect from the road because the run flats are sooooo heavy and hard.

The factory Cooper spare tire is insanely overpriced at nearly $375.00 for just ONE space saver spare. Insane.

We offer a nice alternative that is much more affordable. If you find yourself stranded and you have a flat on the front, you can move one of your rear wheels to the front and put your spare on the rear. It adds to the time at the side of the road but surely beats 2-3 hours waiting and paying for a tow truck. Did you know all MINI's MUST be put on a flat bed which nearly always doubles the cost of a tow? This will pay for itself in one use.

This will NOT fit over the rear caliper on the JCW brakes (from the Brembo style Big Brake Kit). This wheel will NOT clear the JCW big brake kit unless you add a 12mm spacer to the rear.

Wheel Size: 15X4
Offset: ??
Bolt Pattern: 4x100
Tire Size: 22.5" diameter.

If you are missing the tools needed to change out a tire to the spare, check out our convenient tire change kit with optional storage bag.

Please be aware that micro spare tires are not meant to be used on the front due to the larger caliper and rotor. As needed please swap out a good rear wheel/tire to the front and put a spare on the rear.

Thank you.I use this on my 98 BMW 740iL (with a bad paint job). This product works.Now I can clean it
Michael Green

Every product I have ordered from OutMotoring has been shipped promptly and the quality has been superb. OutMotorings customer service has simply been outstanding. Extremely helpful with tracking down difficult to find parts and odds and ends needed for some installs that they didn't have listed, but got for me and had shipped directly to me. Their prices pretty much beat everyone else, but its the outstanding customer service that will keep me a loyal customer.

A note of appreciation from our MINI club...

This year we raised $1,091 for charity that we donated to the area food back and a local pet shelter. Your generous donation of merchandise helped make this possible. (I was very happy to have won the stubby antenna!)

Thank you again for your generosity and the great variety of merchandise you sent.

We had about 40 MINIs at the car show and great weather -- that got everyone in a generous mood and got us over the $1,000 goal. A fitting end to an awesome summer. Thank you again!
