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. Also this tire will fit in the spare tire well in the Clubman S! Also see the Clubman mount kit that we sell!
This new 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 in 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 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 (find needed addapter here to clear the rear brakes). 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.
Looking for a bag? Find our new bag here!
Fits every MINI except the new R60 MINI Countryman or the R61 Paceman. Find that Spare Tire here.
Finish Note: We can do custom colors, almost anything you want for $80.00. Just give us a call and let us know what you want. We had an old spare from our shop Cooper that had some rust that we tried in red for something different! Match the color of your car today!
Note: If you have a Cooper R50 or a Cooper Clubman R55, you already have a spare tire.
Note: Will NOT fit Generation 2 cars with the JCW BREMBO Kit uless you buy this addapter kit HERE.

Having switched to non run flats this past year I wanted to avoid the "No Dear, I can't just change the tire...Yes, Dear, we have to wait for a tow truck...Yes Dear, I knew this when I bought the tires." conversation that would certainly ensue in the event of a flat on my 2013 Hatch. That would not be a good way to spend time while on our vacation in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. :) And being a good husband I thought of this less than a week before we were to leave. I frantically emailed Chad & Co. to see what my shipping options were. We exchanged several emails over the weekend and they assured me that normal shipping should be sufficient if I ordered on Monday. Order quickly placed and the shipping notice was waiting in my inbox when I got home from work on Monday. The tire arrived with time to "spare" (pun intended).

Received the spare in just 3 days and it was just as described. Also purchased the bag which is made of durable material. It fits behind the seat but I preferred to place it in the trunk. I made a brace to raise the tire
up by the trunk door. By doing this the spare tire fits perfectly in the trunk and when you close the door it does not bind on anything. I found that if the brace is not used it will fit but you have to push the trunk door shut.
I have not had to use the spare yet but it looks to be made very well and I am very satisfied with the products and customer service. Many cars today
have donut spares so mini should not be any different.

All cars should have a spare even it they are running "run flat" tires.
This tire will take away the fear of having a blowout and not having a spare.

A "doughnut" is not as good as a full-sized spare - but it beats none at all. Got rid of my run flats, have real tires now, and the spare (this one) as well. A note - the spare has a 15" rim, but when replacing the tires I had the mechanic check, and this DOES fit, even though my tires have 16" rims. It also clears the (standard) brake calipers.

MINI sells their spare tire for I believe $275+
This tire is the same exact thing and but nicely priced. A must have if you traded out your run flats (which I recommend).

Ordered a spare tire for my Mini Cooper S Roadster and within a few days it was at my door!
Perfect size, fits in the trunk with room to spare (no pun intended..)
Will definitely recommend you to all my mini friends!
