The Modern Spare Advantage...

The Modern Spare Advantage...

Engineered!

First Things First- There is no such thing as a “universal” Spare tire and wheel. .
It is critically important the spare tire you choose is designed and engineered specifically for your make, model and year. Carmakers are always changing, redesigning and improving vehicle specifications. Improved performance, safety and efficiency being their top priorities. These changes, although sometimes minor, must be considered carefully in spare tire design.
So Many factors are considered
Modern Spare engineers each spare kit specifically for the vehicle model and year it is made for. Design elements include proper tire diameter, brake clearance, bolt patterns, jack designs, lug wrench fitment and so much more. Each vehicle model deserves attention to these important details. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your Modern Spare is not only well thought out but most importantly, it is right for your vehicle.

Lightweight

More than being lightweight.
For decades, carmakers provided small, barely adequate spare tire assemblies with your vehicle. It was obvious these factory-supplied units were designed for cost savings over usefulness and durability. We determined that a spare tire can be compact and narrow to save space and lightweight for ease of use, all while being extremely durable and rugged
Simply Made To Go The Distance
We took our carefully engineered wheel design and partnered with a state of the art aluminum-alloy wheel manufacturer to achieve a truly Modern Spare. In fact, each wheel is manufactured with strict standards of strength and durability to match those of modern full-size alloy wheels and is still 35% lighter than its equivalent steel counterpart. Each Modern Spare wheel and tire combination is matched to travel farther than typical spare tires allow.* The combined effect of being tough and lightweight makes changing a flat tire much less strenuous in addition to providing peace of mind as you travel. *See range and speed details here

Ease of Use

Getting back on the road should be easy.
Changing a flat should be quick and easy. We achieve this by including purpose-built tools into every Modern Spare kit. The goal is to get you back on the road quickly using our TruLift Scissor Jack system. Quite possibly the most simple and effective roadside jack you will ever use. Thanks to our leveraged ratcheting handle system, our TruLift Jack requires just minimal effort to raise your vehicle and bring your car down safely.
Having the right tools.
Stubborn lug nuts can add stress to an already stressful situation. Your Modern Spare Complete Kit will include a telescoping breaker-bar style lug wrench. This easy-to-store compact wrench features an extendable handle to provide optimal leverage when you need it most. Even the most stubborn lug nuts are removed and reinstalled easily. Finally, since a flat tire is a dirty tire, we had the forethought to include a large plastic tire bag in each complete kit. You can now protect your car’s interior while transporting your flat to the repair shop.

Extended Range

The old way…
Small spare tires once provided by carmakers typically had a limited range of fewer than 50 miles. The range limit of these old spares was due to their low build quality but more importantly the small diameter relative to your factory tires. This size difference puts strain on your car’s drivetrain and restricts how far you can travel. Adequate? Yes. But certainly not what’s best for your car.
The new way…
Modern Spare kits are designed to better match the rolling diameter of your vehicle’s factory tires. This prevents excess strain on your vehicle’s drivetrain while using the spare over longer travel distances. While a Modern Spare is not to be used as a replacement over your factory tires, it has the capability to get you where you 're going. Whether you have AWD, or a limited-slip differential, our kit is safe for the sophisticated drivetrain of your car. *See range and speed details here
It Matters What Tires You Use
Please remember! You will never see an unknown brand or generic labeled tire on a Modern Spare Kit. Modern Spare only uses top-rated name brand tires on our spare tire kits. Manufacturers like Pirelli, Continental and Maxxis are chosen for their rugged reinforced durability and of course, your peace of mind. With the right brand and the right size spare tire, you can more easily complete your trip or travel to a repair shop of your choice.

So, why Is My Car Missing A Spare Tire?

Few things are as stressful as a flat tire.  Especially as you’re traveling along a remote and desolate highway. Not a great time to discover a spare tire is nowhere to be found in your new car.  Surprisingly, more than ⅓ of all car models sold today, are not equipped with that little lifesaver.

So, why are so many car manufacturers not providing a spare tire?

Car manufacturers are finding new ways to reduce weight and reduce costs. Removing the spare is simply one way to accomplish this.  Of course, this requires reliance on spare tire alternatives.  Unfortunately, the common alternatives you’re left with are barely adequate at best.  

What “solutions” are carmakers leaving you with?

Inflator Kits

– Inflator kits are one of car manufacturer’s current substitute for a spare tire. However, inflator kits are extremely limited in the damage that they can repair.  Using the inflator along with the sealant is only effective on simple nail-type punctures that are clean through the center of the tire tread.  With sidewall damage from curb strikes and potholes, or complete blowouts, these inflator/sealer kits are of no help. 

The sealant in these kits can also damage tire-pressure monitoring systems. Some replacements ranging up to $300 – $400 apiece.  Modern Spare designs and sells spare tire kits engineered specifically for your car. Our kits are a modern solution and a vast improvement over the factory-supplied solutions. We offer spare tire kits for many GM, Dodge/Chrysler, and all Tesla models with many more makes and models being introduced soon.

Road Assitance

– AAA memberships or similar roadside assistance service provides peace of mind for countless drivers. Roadside services offer help for all types of breakdowns. Great for many situations but, having this insurance as your spare tire back up is not a real solution. Without a good spare tire, failures typically result in a tow. With a high-performance car or one with a very low stance, damage to your vehicle is possible when being loaded on a tow truck.  

Furthermore, AAA will take you to the nearest service station. You may have experienced the unlikelihood that this service station will stock the specialty performance tire your car requires.  If traveling out of town, a hotel stay is likely while waiting for a replacement tire to arrive. 

You can see how relying on roadside assistance can turn into an expensive and stressful experience.  Should you find yourself with a flat in an area with no cell phone service, the outcome is even more stressful.  You need a spare tire solution designed to fit and be right for your car.
