Note: This Kit will only fit a MINI Cooper Clubman S R55. Here is the Spare by itself for other applications.

If you're 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. Nothing 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 air 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 design 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

    The price and service from Detroit Tuned is exceptional.
    The tire and tray are just what Mini should have put in in the first place instead of runflats.

    The Perfect Spare Tire Solution

    Posted by Rich on 5th Dec 2017

    I bought this spare tire and tray for my recently acquired 2012 MINI Cooper Clubman S. I'm planning on switching away from the run-flats that came on the car, so this is a step in that direction. I ordered the parts on a Friday and they arrived Tuesday. The tray is an original MINI part, and the spare came inflated with a label reminding me to keep it at 60 psi. A great product at a great price, with an easy order process and fast shipping. Thanks Detroit Tuned!

    Exactly as described

    I recently purchased this spare tire combo for an 09 mini that was purchased a month ago. I did a fair amount of researching and found that the final price from Detroit Tuned was the best value for me. The kit was ordered on Monday and delivered Wednesday! It arrived exactly as depicted on the website and fits perfectly into the spare tire holder built into the Mini. The tire arrived fully inflated. Great price and super fast shipping. Exactly what I needed, and exactly as described.

    Fits perfectly in my 2013 Clubman S!

    Posted by Stephen Miller on 13th Mar 2017

    This is one of those products that you have to have, but hope you never have to use. This one is well-designed, fitting perfectly into the space in my Clubman (R55) where it's supposed to go. The included clamp holds it down securely, and the tray accommodates my jack, etc. I'm very pleased with this product.

    Needs a little fettling, but it cures the problem of run-flats!

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Aug 2016

    Everything is just what it says it is. However, some are confused when they try to screw in the retention knob. It seems too long. But here's the fix: take the crew out of the knob and screw the short portion into the floor. The screws stays there and the knob screws on and off of it to hold the spare in place. I think it's just shipped that way so the screw isn't lost.

    Presto, no more run-flats are necessary!

    MINI Clubman Spare Tire & Tray Kit

    Posted by Steven D. on 7th Jul 2016

    Exactly what I needed when I was finally able to move away from the run-flats...especially if you plan on road trips.

    The tray is a genuine MINI part, and fits perfectly inside the provided spare. The sticker on the spare indicating 60 PSI is a nice addition as well.

    My only complaint would be that the lockdown screw/knob bottoms out about a centimeter before the spare tire can be securely locked down. So there is the possibility that the spare can rattle around. This also means the foam tray "rocks" a little on the knob, causing it to sit slightly higher, although the cover seems to sit flush with the floor anyway.

    I will probably need to look at trimming the screw down 1.5cm or so to allow it to secure the spare tire. Not the end of the world, just a minor annoyance. Still well worth every penny.

    DT NOTE: We think you have the bolt in upside down. Flip it over and it should work as intended. It should bolt in tight and not rock at all. Give us a call if you need help.

    Mini Cooper S Clubman Spare Tire and Tray Kit

    Posted by Steve Wright on 23rd May 2016

    Awesome kit.!
    Perfect retro kit when replacing run flat tires on Mini Cooper S with non run ones. Solves not having a spare on S model. Great value and turn key parts, spare wheel with mounted tire, spare tire tool tray, and spare tire mounting bolt / handle.
    Solved problem of trying to obtain correct retro parts individually.

    The tray is great and fits on the spare, which fits perfectly. My only complaint is that the lockdown knob bottoms out before the spare is firmly locked down, and is sticking up enough that the tray is slightly elevated by it. I may have to futz with the stud on the knob to make it shorter. It was too cold tonight to spend time on.
    Everything fits under the cargo flap though. Looking forward to buying good tires!

    Let me be the latest to jump on the bandwagon

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Oct 2015

    I ordered it on Saturday and had it in my boot by 2:30 Tuesday afternoon with standard ground shipping. The fit and finish are perfect and I will echo the previous comments. The piece of mind knowing I now have a spare is well worth the investment. The included swag was a nice touch too!!
