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.
Ok, so this thing is joke...it's so tiny, it's hard not to laugh at it. Most motorcycle tires are wider and bigger than this thing....BUT it is a perfect replacement to a lost or worn factory space saver spare tire for your MINI Cooper. Or 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. Please do not blame us for psychological damages or other mental issues you may suffer while driving and made fun of. I guess it's better than sitting at the side of the road looking helpless.
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. Because MINI never included a spare tire in the Cooper S models 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.
If you find yourself stranded and you have a flat on the front you can always take one of your rear wheels and put it on the front and put this 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.
