    Angry First use of my Glorious Spare Tire

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I haven't heard anyone make mention of ever using the spare tire although I'm sure that someone has somewhere. LOL

    It's been more than a decade since I've had a blow out but it was much easier then expected, honestly.

    I hit a massive pot hole and the TPMS went off immediately.

    20 minutes later and I was on my way!

    NOTES:

    1) The temporary tire has a sticker that says to stay under 50mph..... in a Stinger.... really??? LOLOLOL
    2) The alloy rim is pretty nice looking for a spare
    3) The car was pulling pretty hard because I have AWD. I pulled the AWD fuse that I talked about HERE in the forum and now she rolls straight in RWD.
    4) Tires are expensive LOL

    Glad it's there when you need it. I've contemplated a few times to remove it to save weight.

    Yup. It's the nicest compact spare I've ever seen. Still leaks like crazy like every other 60psi tire.

    I used mine a while back and I was pretty surprised that the wheel is made of aluminum. Most spare tires are limited in speed because they're only supposed to get you to home or to a shop. "Temporary" is the key word, but I'm sure you already knew that

    The last time I changed my tire was back in 2002. I had a ford F150 I built into a pre runner an had 35's on it. I took my spare tire out of my Stinger, that rim and tire is heavy, it look good but it weighs to much. Your right @MurlinatoR those tires are costly, you mite want to steer clear of potholes and objects on the road. Hitting pothole with your car is hard on your steer, suspension and also could brake your rims.

    Speaking of spare, how often are we supposed to maintain it?
