When you lift the cargo floor, you see the pump kit for filling a damaged tire, on top of a styrofoam-like filler that is inside the big hole where a tire would normally be. Has anybody ever taken out the styrofoam filler and put a spare tire in there? Will it fit, and will I be able to close the cargo floor with a full sized tire in there? I was just hoping somebody had tried this before and had some information they could share.

Thanks for the responses guys. So, did you go through Mopar and buy their $300+ spare tire kit, which includes the jack, or did you do it through other means? Any feedback on how you did it would be appreciated.

The Mopar spare is not full size, if you want full size you should look elsewhwere.

Mine is a full size tire/rim that came off a trail hawk.. $150 Canadian + 20$ for the jack another 10$ for the tools = $180 Canadian. Still cheaper than a mopar spare kit

I purchased a rim off a forum member (75th anniversary 18 inch rim with the pressure sensor) who was selling. I'm not concerned it doesn't match my oem 18's since this is an emergency spare.

I bought a tire from tire rack, the Jack and lug wrench from Amazon. Total investment under 300 dollars but it's the superior setup compared to the mopar with temp tire that isn't even highway speed rated.

Jeep Renegade wheels are compatible with other cars. It was my local scrap yard that knew the car to take it from.

Ask around and have the details of the inner diameter of the hole, number of studs/holes and distance between them if you cannot take the car to them.

Have you tried Ebay?

I posted when I first started in here about my full size, alloy spare wheel and tyre from the scarpyard. £30 therabouts I believe I paid.

No need to go overboard on costs guys. It is as someone said above, merely a spare :D:D:D

Having read your post I ordered from Ebay a 12"- 24" extending wheel wrench for £7.50. Couple that together with a 2 ton trolley jack for £15 and the wheel from the scrappy for a grand total of £52.50 is I believe a great deal as opposed to paying $300.

I even have the tyre inflation kit supplied with the car.

Often a great deal is to be had by shopping around. :D:D:D

235/55/R18 spares are very hard to find. Can't believe Jeep of all cars do not come with a full size spare. This brand new spare is available in Colorado if anyone is interested.
I may be interested. I need to check the size of the tires currently on the vehicle. It is my daughter's car and it did not come with a spare tire. A 2017 Jeep Renegade.

I am looking into purchasing a full size spare, but what else should I be buying for it too? Just a jack and what other tools?

I carry a small trolley jack that can lift the Renegade or the boat.

Search the forum if you are looking for a "toolkit" as that topic had it's lat post discussed around a week past with plenty of thoughts.

Welcome to the forum. Besides the jack you will need a lug wrench. A wheel chock would be good also. If it at night a headlamp works great, put light on the wheel and leave your hands free.

Just make sure the tire and rim are the correct size usually a 17 or 18 inch rim. Then Walmart has jacks and lug wrench for cheap and your all set.
