Any ideas to mount a spare on the back or roof? Been looking at the bike racks that Smart Madness has, probably could modify that, but wanted to see if there is anything else that might work.....not to mention the bike rack is $250.00, gotta be a cheaper way to do it....

Never got to try but will they fit in the trunk? A lot have noted fitting them behind one of the seats as an FYI. Have you tried that?

Hi. What I did was buy a rim and tire to fit on front. I carry it behind the drivers seat.

Do you know if a 15" standard donut tire would fit on the fancier front rim for the Passion model ?? I have an extra one I picked up used. The rim fits behind my driver's seat with the configuration I always use. I am the only one that drives my little yellow baby. Nice Video!!! THANKS

With where I keep my driver's seat a 175/55 15 tire fits nice as a spare behind that seat. That Spare is as much about having the extra 3 lug rim on board as it is about the extra tire.

Spare tire on this car is rear OEM steel rim, standard 15" tire size. There is pin to release hinge, tire stays on rack, no need to remove wheel, unless you want to use it.

Hi Janco,
man, I’d love to get that part, just what I’ve been looking for! Would you mind shipping it to Arkansas?

Sure, folding part is aluminum, not that heavy. However my cross bar is steel painted black, so heavy. Need to put these two parts on scale... send me PM for further discussion.
