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 (SEE photos). 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 spare is about 22" in diameter and a little over 5" thick. 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: MINI has changed the desing to fit all tow hooks!
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.

Good piece of mind to have this spare now that I ditched the run-flats. Fits great with tray and tools. Also this kit was waaaay more affordable than the others I found online.

The spare and the tray kit fit like a glove. The tray lay out matches the OEM and the jack and tools fit snug.
Piece of mind knowing there's a spare.
If you own a Clubman, buy the kit, not just the spare.

I received the parts ordered as scheduled and they fit like a glove. No modifications were required. For anyone who wants to get rid of the run flats this is definitely the way to go. I highly recommend the kit and the company that furnished it - Detroit Tuned. I will definitely do business with them again.

Tire and system was extremely easy to insert. Great new tire!

Perfect drop in kit for peace of mind when ditching those God forsaken run flats. Took me more time to move my junk out of the way than it did to install and swap over the jack and tools. Hope I never have to use it.

Bought a used 2010 Clubman. The previous owner removed the run-flat tires. I wanted to be sure there was a spare available in case of a flat. The spare and the foam insert fit like a factory item. I have not yet had to install the spare on the car but it looks like it will do the job

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.
