    No spare tire

    My 2012 Soul + has no spare tire, tire iron or jack. It came with a small portable air compressor and tire sealant. That would be ok for a puncture but not if you had a blow out. What does everyone else have?

    the older souls have the donut and jack, and lots of 2012 owners are buying that setup for their car, and some are even going to a full sized spare...... but quite how that fits in with the underfloor cargo cubby - i dont know.

    Do a search - lots of comments and threads already on getting them.

    I read an article that 15 and 16 inch donuts fit fine but a full size spare won't make it into the cubby. I could be wrong, but that is what the article said. I have looked at the hole in the base and it looks like it would have a hard time with a full size spare. Now we have to find someone to build and market a tire rack to hang off the tail gate to accomodate the spare. Neat, huh?

    You can PM member Cobra259 who is a parts manager at a dealership in the US, will give you a deal on a set shipped to your door.

    Canadian models come standard with the compact spare, here's mine. Can't see a full size spare fitting in there, but never tried it and no use for it.

    but where do you put the fat heavy 18inch punctured wheel when you put the donut on?.

    worry about that when required, only ever used a compact spare once in all the years I've been driving (when they became a standard feature), not sure how long now but I'm guessing 20-25 years. At one time, the full size spare was always used as part of your tire rotation.

    2012 Titanium !
    Ebay sells the spare kit for about $200 shipped. That is probably where I am going to get mine.
