Here is the best option for anyone that has decided the run flats were not the tire for them anymore (everyone?), but are afraid of running around without a spare. This spare tire will fit behind your seat for long road trip or day to day driving. This 5 lug wheel will fit all F56 cars.
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 & to install it on the rear! 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 (3.5 wide 15" wheel, with a ET:28mm and 5x112mm lug pattern & 66.5 center bore) that will fit over most front brakes that the MINI has, but will fit over ALL REAR brakes on the MINI UNLESS you have the Sport Brakes, M MSort Brakes or JCW Sport Brake option (brembo kit) on a generation e car. 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 with the tire installed and is a very dark silver color with a bit of metal flake. 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. Don't be fooled by other companies selling this same set up for 215.95 or more, but this kit and save $97.98!! That is a huge saving!

It's a spare tire. What can you say about a spare tire? It's round and I didn't have one as the Gen 3 Minis don't come w/one. So I want more than the run flat tires. So I bought a spare and have it in the back now.
