Note: This Kit will only fit a MINI Cooper Clubman S R55. Here is the Spare by itself for other applications.
If you adding a spare tire kit to a MINI Cooper Clubman S, here is the best option for everyone that decided the run flats were not the tire for them (everyone?). The spare tire will fit down in your spare tire wheel just fine, but it doesn't have have a bolt or nut to hold it in place or a safe place to store your jack and other tools. The stock foam tray WILL NOT fit inside the tire. So we made this combo that adds the bolt, hold down nut, and the foam tray that will fit into your wheel and give you added place for storing small items as well as a spot for a jack and all the other tools that you need to change a wheel.
This spare comes mounted and ready to use. Nothings could be easier. As an added bonus, we installed a sticker on it for quick easy reference to show you to keep inflated to 60 PSI! We also install a 2 inch valve stem to make checking and filling the aire pressure easier. This wheel is a stock MINI spare tire rim and will fit over most front brakes that the MINI has, but will fit over ALL REAR brakes on the MINI UNLESS you have the JCW brake option (brembo kit) on a generation 2 car (you need this adapter kit here). And for safety, you should always run a spare tire on the rear. No Spacers, adapters, or special lugs needed to make this work with your MINI. This is the correct size spare for all MINIs, no mater what size wheel and tire you have. This is designed to be used in an emergency situation for 60 miles or less and under speeds of 50 mph. By using this you will not cause any damage to the vehicle if driven in a normal manner.
Fitment Note: Some tow hooks do not fit in the place designed by MINI due to a part change. It's longer and the tray needs to be trimmed just a bit to allow it to go in completely. About 2 seconds with a steak knife and you will have enough room no problem.
Note: If you have a Cooper Clubman R55, you already have a spare tire.
Note: Will NOT fit Generation 2 cars with the JCW BREMBO Kit unless you buy the adapter kit HERE.

Mini S Clubman owner, hated my RFTs, so swapped out for Conti ControlContact Sport AS. Much better, but needed a spare. Detroit Tuned had the solution - the spare and new tray fit perfectly in the boot. Thanks for selling exactly what you advertise!

Great fit and easy installation (20 minutes start to finish). Shipping was fast and price was great. All the factory tools fit properly in the tray with no modifications needed.

Have not used the tire yet but looks great in the trunk.
I had the mechanics do a test fit on my '08 Clubman S when he was mounting my new tires and as promised fits the rear just fine.

Like many others, wanted to flee the run-flat trap, but first...gotta have a spare. Ordered this kit. All exactly as described and dropped the whole thing into place perfectly in--literally--10 minutes. Goodbye run-flats.

Definitely an item MINI should have included with the CooperS. Didn't even have to cut a longer slot for the tow hook. Fits like a dream, and takes the worry out of long trips. If you don't have one ........ get one and gain the peace of mind.

Finally decided to get rid of run flats, and found this item recommended on a MINI forum - worth every penny! The molded foam fits perfectly with my car's jack & other items - I feel much safer having a usable spare. Great product! Hope I never end up needing it, but it's nice to have in my boot!

Got the spare and kit and it came with everything I needed to complete getting rid of my run flats on a Clubman S. Wheel and new tray insert fit perfectly, floor is flat, looks bone stock. Did have to modify the tow hook slot with an exacto knife, but it took less than a minute.
The only reason I didn;t rate this 5 star is that the wheel does not fit over the front brakes, so a flat in the front requires a swap with the rear.

What can I say...It's a spare tire ! Hope to never need to use it. It fits the wheel well - Kumho spare. Bought it with the tool tray insert. Easy install. Best was that compared to another company popular for selling MINI parts, going with Detroit Tuned saved me approximately $150 !! How could that be...I have no idea but the spare and tray cost $170 plus vs the other company...$335. So, it's a no brainer going with Detroit Tuned !

Of course, I haven't put the tire on yet, but it looks fine, and fits nicely in the well. The tray also fits very nicely, although in a more perfect world, this product wouldn't cost more than $5 or $10. There's not much to it.

This product was exactly as described. Took it out of the shipping box and it dropped right into place. Will give me much piece of mind if I do have a flat and am miles from a dealer. Arrived in 2 days- great service. Thank you
