Post Spare Tire Questions/Comments/Info THREAD

My husband and I just purchased the 2015 Jeep Renegade Latitude.

We are having a heck of a time finding a spare tire for it. We prefer a donut since room is limited but will do a full size if nothing else.

Jeep dealership quoted 815.00 just for the aluminum rim and no tire.

The size is 215/60/17. What are my options?

I've learned from one of the Renegade product planning managers at headquarters that spare tires in particular are on a long back-order from Europe. They are making an effort to ensure that new vehicles are being sent with them included. This won't solve your problem for the short term unfortunately. The Dodge Dart has the same 5x110mm lug bolt pattern as the Renegade. This might be a workable option: have the dealer pull the donut spare from a Dart and test fit it to your Renegade. Even if the outside diameter doesn't match perfect, you will be able to hobble to a tire shop. I'll check with my contacts on the current lead time on spare tire parts.

Was this a typo or did you actually mean $815? This would be the price of an entire brand new set of rims or tires, much less just a steel rim. This is insane. Go to a local tire shop or order online.

Full size temporary use spare

Am wondering if the full size temporary use spare comes deflated or inflated & if it is just the same size as a normal tire, but just comes as a black steel wheel. Also wondering if it comes with a tire inflator. And does it come with a jack? I am thinking of going this route and then ordering a normal wheel to match the other 4, get rid of the steel wheel and have a matching "spare" when needed that can go highway speeds. But that would not be possible if I can't fit a normal sized wheel and tire in that trunk space. It might be only big enough for a smaller, deflated temporary use wheel and tire.

Wondering if it looks like this. This is a full size matching tire and wheel for a Trailhawk. As you can see the jack is stowed to the right.

So has anyone bought or seen such a full size temporary use spare? If yes then please post pictures and let everyone know if it comes with a tire inflator and/or a jack. Thanks.

I know in the Challenger world, if you get a spare tire (only a mini-spare is available), you do not get the inflator kit. You only get the jack if you have a spare.

I'm guessing that the Renegade will be similar. Inflator kit, no spare or jack. Spare tire (of any kind), you get a jack but no inflator kit.

Vehicles:
2015 Renegade Trailhawk - Silver (Glacier Metallic)
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack
2014 H-D Road King
2009 Dodge Challenger R/T (traded)

Yeah, mine has the full size spare and the jack. Not sure about inflator.

You can get tire inflaters, aka. air compressor, pretty cheap. Another source, wrecking yards. A lot of cars now days come with inflator kits (Abarth being one of them) and wrecking yard might have them.

If your vehicle came with a spare tire, then it should be properly inflated. The inflator kit is for cars that don't come with a spare tire. It basically compresses air into the tire along with some kind of goo that seals the leak as an emergency measure until you can properly get it patched.

Yep, I've got a Trailhawk and got the same stuff you did. I'm tempted to get rid of that foam insert so I can use that area to store more stuff. Right now it is holding my cheap 12v inflator that fits in it.
