new 2011 5.0

I recently purchased a 2011 5.0 Mustang with the brembo brake pkg. When I got it home I noticed that the car was without a jack and spare tire. It does have a pump where the spare goes. My question is this. Have any of you bought a spare and jack from the dealer and how much did you pay for it? Is it possible to use a spare with the brembo brake's on the front? Or is not having a spare just something we have to live with?

Thanks

A spare will not fit.. I recently had a blow out and the dealership went and picked it up.. They took a wheel and tire from another mustang that wouldn't work.. Not sure what they ended up using but I do know they had an issue finding one..

Unfortunately, the brakes don't allow for a spare tire to fit.

Re: new 2011 5.0

You need to buy another rim like the one on the car.Keep a full size spare in the trunk when you travel.I bought one off these boards.Brembo OEM wheel.Good to have a spare for many reasons.If I buy some aftermarket wheels I will sell 4 out of the 5 I have to guys wanting them

Look at it this way, they already started the weight reduction for you!

Congrats on your new car BTW.

Welcome to the 5.0 family!
Lol, I didn't know you Brembo guys didn't come with a spare?!?!?
Thanks for the ammunition. It will serve me greatly when this kid around town tries to break my balls about me not buying the Brembo package.
