Mine didn't come with a spare. I asked when they showed me the trunk! Is not having spares a new GM thing? Just wondering.

I think no spare is a Camaro thing. I saw spare tire on the options list.

No spare w/ the 20" rims, on the SS. You can get a spare w/ the "smaller" rims.

Actually when I was ordering my Camaro and made sure I ordered a spare, the guy that worked there that was taking my order said more GM vehicles are going towards having no spare (as standard issue) and people don't realise it until they get it or need it.

Well, mine does have a spare, but its a slow leak so I am airing it up and headed to the tire shop after work...

One cool thing that I found out tho... Seems my tires are the "run Flat" techology... Its only got 4 pounds of air in it now, but its not flat! Arent supposed to run them more than 50 miles like that, but I wouldnt go far anyway.. I will air it up to normal and watch it on the way. Should be ok!

Up to 50 miles at 50 mph I believe. That is why the cars equipped with this tire do not come with spares standard. They figure the run flat is enough and supply you with a flat tire fix it kit instead. I believe a spare is still an option, even for those equipped with the 20's. I don't recall for sure though.

Well, it was a 1" Sheet Metal Screw! Thank goodness I have a cousin with a tire shop! They took their time and made sure that there were no scratches on the wheel.... All is well and back on the road!

Camaros come with Run Flats?
NO!

Camaros do not come with Run Flat tires. They are standard high performance tires.

DO NOT BE CAUGHT THINKING YOU HAVE RUN FLAT TIRES!!!!!!!
If you do you will drive around with very low air pressure and have the potential to A) ruin your tire driving on low air pressure or B) causing the tire to blow out and damage your car or worse. Road Hazards like a nail are not covered unless you buy that kind of protection from the dealer or tire retailer.

CAMAROS DO NOT HAVE TIRES WITH RUN FLAT TECHNOLOGY!!

You can have a spare on the 20" wheels (via RS package) on an LT.
