Spare tire?

Hi,

I was going over my order sheet, and I noticed it said "spare tire not desired". Now, of course, I didn't actually ask for one as I asumed it would be part of the car. Guess I was wrong. Can this be added to the car as a paid option? I would have thought that the 2SS would have came with something liek this as standard. I would really like one as I have had several flats on the highway befor.

I assumed the car comes with a "donut" compact size spare, and that the option is probably a full size spare. Saying it's not recommended would make sense to me, if it would reduce the available space in the trunk.

My MB has a compact spare below the bed of the trunk that expands to full size after inflation -- something like that would be nice from GM.

The SS does not come with a spare of any kind. It will have a tire inflater kit. Reason being is because the spare tire would not fit over the brakes.

What he said.

Brembos are much bigger than the average calipers.

I have a small portable compressor in my car and a full size replacement in my garage. My spare is somewhere, but I'm not messing around with changing it on the side of the road. I have my cell for the times the tire gets so bad I can't fill it up. I need to renew my AAA.

The tire sealant and inflator kit is standard on Camaro, all models.

N65 is the compact spare tire option available for LS and LT, but it is NOT available with SS as previously mentioned.

Don't those tire sealants ruin the tire so it can't be fixed?
