Spare Tire

Does the Brembo Brake package come with a spare tire? All I got was a tire inflator.

Re: Spare Tire

My dealer said that spare tire that normally comes with the GTs won't fit over the Brembo brakes.

And they saved themselves, "zillions" -rather than give you and others, updated-Brembo upgrade specific, space saver spare(s)..

aka.. we dont want to put a spare in as it costs to much so we are giving you this inflation thing~ I think there is an option to order the spare as well~

You don't want a spare trust me, unless it's a 18-19" spare anything less will destroy your car. Alignment, treads, and your rear end can all get slaughtered using the spare improperly fords come with 5 year roadside have it towed for free on a flatbed and get new tire put on

I don't think they saved much, instead of a spare, they give you a air compressor and tire foam. What they call a mobility kit.

The difference in price for one unit is probably $100+ dollars... mulitply that by the amount of packages sold... Profit.

Re: Spare Tire

$100 per car is probably about right. There was a 2011 V6 that I almost bought that had a spare tire. I was surprised to see it there since they normally don't come with one either. When I looked up the window sticker online it was a $100 option. I didn't see that option advertised anywhere when I was at the dealer though so it must have been some sort of fleet order. That or it came from Canada, I think their V6's came with spares too.
