Do all SRT's come without a spare tire?

Hi

Do all SRT's come without a spare tire? If so what do you do about a flat?


Thanks
Jack

From what I understand because of the weight and the way the rear end fits under it SRTs don't have spare tires or jacks, You get a can of fix a flat that your not suppose to use because it's not good for the tires. You have road warranty for the first year

Theres a can of tire goop hooked to the air compressor in the trunk.....as long as it's not a catastrophic blowout or a slice it will get you where you need to go.

The SRT does not have a temporary steel wheel spare because of its inability to fit over the large Brembo brake calipers. Some members have purchased a new 20" forged OEM wheel or used a temporary spare wheel from a Chrysler 300 with wheel spacers.

The R/T 18 inch spare will fit on the rear (I think). The 18 inch spare will not clear the front brakes. If I am incorrect please post the real deal.

Spacer Size please?

Anybody know what size spacers are required to clear the brakes? I have a new R/T Challenger spare, jack and hold down kit. I was hoping to be able to use it with my SRT8.

The latest issue of Mopar Collectors Guide highlights an aftermarket spare tire/jack package engineered for the SRTs.

I would recommend against using the goop that comes with the car, been there, done that, and got pissed! I had a small, very small leak and the goop only sealed it enough to drive 30 miles. The problem you say? I had to drive 367 miles... On the fouth of July... though the desert.
