    Apologies in advance for the re-post! Spare tire

    I know this has been discused previously but for the life of me I cannot find the information in my searches . With the lack of complete cell phone coverage in the area I live I purchased a spare for my 05 C2s. I'm trying to figure out the best way of securing it so it doesn't move around. For those of you that have also purchased the spare -What have you done?? Thanks

    Re: Apologies in advance for the re-post! Spare tire

    This is an interesting question. Coming from the "security" of cars with traditional jacks and spares it took a leap of faith for me to move first to a 987S and now a 997S. My browser is somewhat incompatible with this list so for some reason I cannot perform searches or read polls. However, I feebly recall something about the previous generation 911 not having a spare as well but there was some kit one could purchase if one were so inclined to add a spare.

    Re: Apologies in advance for the re-post! Spare ti

    Here's how to do it. Have weldment fabricated (if no welder). All the rest is easy; threaded rod with wingnut and large wooden "washer." Remove carpet and attach exactly where shown. Will hold spare in place for general motoring and a minor fender bender. Full-on crash will rip rivets out.

    Re: Apologies in advance for the re-post! Spare ti

    Is that one of those blow the tire up from a compressor/bottle type spares? Looks like you'll need to get a lug wrench (collapsible/telescopic) and jack.

    Re: Apologies in advance for the re-post! Spare ti

    You'll need to buy all the typical flat-tire accessories (jack, lugwrench, etc.)
