Well, I pulled the plug and ordered and received the Lattitude/Limited Full Size limited use Spare tire kit) which includes tire (145/90 R16) Continental (mounted on black steel wheel which will work for temp use on all std sized Latitude/Limited tires, jack/lug wrench, another Phillips screw driver, lock nut to lock down spare in trunk, instruction sheet and tool bag. I bought this item off of ebay eBay item number:161746633887.
Here are photos of install.
1. Remove Jeep insert (retain for later use), remove foam tray insert-dispose of (remove bolt holding foam insert to body), but keep funnel, custom hex key, screwdriver, which will all be placed in your tool bag later.
2. Install tire and tighten with supplied lock nut ,
3. Place your previously removed inflator kit in top left corner of spare area and your tool kit with (jack, lug wrench, screwdriver, funnel, hex tool)on left side of spare tire. Plenty of room for anything else around spare tire, i.e. jumper cables.
4. Install your jeep labeled liner above tire -- even though instructions say to remove and dispose of. This fits fine so no need to throw away.
5. Close cargo floor and you are all set to go.
I have included photos of. Empty spare tire area, spare tire installed, inflator and tool bag installed, Jeep logo liner installed and finished product.


Hope this helps anyone who wants to purchase and install OEM Jeep spare tire (limited use) for their Jeep Renegade Transition or Limited. I would say this would probably fit Sport as well.
\Good Luck.

Will a full size spare fit even if you have mysky panels stored in the back?
I do not know how thick the panels are once stored in pizza box like storage bag so I cannot say if they will fit with full size temp. spare. I just went out and measured from top of lower storage "Jeep" empossed cover to bottom of cargo floor and it about 3.5". Not sure if you have adjustable cargo floor. The panels would definitely fit in cargo area if you were not carrying any other cargo. Hope this helps you some.

The MySky panels won't fit under the floor if you have a full sized spare.

I tried to put them in a car equipped with the inflator kit(no mini-spare) and I could not get them to fit under the trunk floor. I did not get pictures of it. But the big problem was the length of the bag, not the actual thickness. Looks like the bag has to go on top of the trunk floor and luggage has to go on top of the roof panels. Pack lightly if you dare to pack anything on top of the roof panels.

I keep my pizza box in the house unless I'm planning to pull the panels. Otherwise it sits on top of the cargo floor. Most of the time the rear cargo area has my Honda branded organizer in it left over from the Element. It fits better than the Jeep product and better than it did in the Element. I should put a Jeep patch on it. :)

Yup, just bought one for myself. Total price, with shipping, was cheaper than buying it directly from the dealer or the Mopar.com website.

Once I receive and install it, I'll also take pics for folks.

I'm still on the hunt for rims to use as winter-tires, haven't quite been able to confirm the hub bore and offset. Might pull a wheel today in between yard-work and house-work to see if I can measure things.

Renegade Spare tire

I know this topic has been covered before but I just wanted to be sure about a few things. We have a 2015 Renegade limited and my son hit a curb the other day, needless to say the tire is flat. I want to, after the fact of course, buy the spare tire kit. My questions are, does it store under the cargo area of the jeep and if it has to be used, does it have to be inflated? I can get it for around 300.00 from my dealer. The tires are 215/60r17. Thanks.:)

Hello,

The spare tire will fit perfectly in the cargo space. The wheel is always inflated (a little bit harder than normal) and ready to replaced.
I have the same wheel size as yours and have no problem with it.

I hope this will help you out.
Grtz, Lechim

I purchased a temp spare online from a dealer in Texas (ebay)

I fit the jack under the tire. The tire is a little to one side but locks down.
I can fit the My Sky pizza box under back panel .

Thank you. I'm buying one before my trip. I'm old school and i don't want to be stuck with just that inflater thing in the rain...in the middle of no where.

Reading thro' all the above posts, we have bought the space saver wheel and it sits higher than the recess that the original polystyrene moulded parts tray,
this means the cargo floor shelf will not sit level, now rocks and it is also very flimsy!
Im sure i read somewhere that a higher shelf could be purchased?? Any ideas.
Ours is a 1.4 Longitude and we are in the UK btw.

thanks in anticipation.

Did you get the function pack with keyless entry and push button start? If so you did it should have had this with the car it's part of the package. if not I think they cost 200 pounds plus to buy. Might be cheaper to build one as the side supports are in the boot already? 15mm ply and some audio carpet. but Depends on how much you want a proper shelf. or have the kit to make one. I thought the space saver fitted in the same place but didn't have the massive polystyrene surround the inflator pack has.
