Asked by Feb 28, 2010 at 10:55 AM about the 2004 MINI Cooper S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have repaced my runflat tires with regular high performance tires.  I have slime and a conpressor but still feel uneasy on out of town trips.  I have seen what mini offers but at $300 it is a little high.  Does anyone know of any other brand (Honda,Chevy,VW ect,) that would work as a spare tire on my 2004 MCS.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.....Thank You

I have a 2007 Mini Cooper S and i found a used spare tire for a Honda Civic at a salvage yard for $50.00. You can mount it under the car easily, just click on the link for step by step instructions on how I did it myself: http://www.northamericanmotoring.com/forums/how-to/208978-interior-exterior- how-to-mount-a-spare-tire-on-your-cooper-s.html

Mini uses a 4x100 bolt pattern so honda as said above will work and is cheaper. Just for your information is you use that slime in the tire, most tire shops will have an extra fee on there for the dismount and remount because of the mess. Hope that helps.

FYI most honda wheels won't clear the brakes

you cant fit a spare wheel to a cooper s unless you change the exhaust system to a split system like the clubman s then u might be able too
