    2014- Spare Tire

    If you add a spare tire, do you lose the under floor storage compartment in the Soul or does it fit below that or elsewhere? We sometimes go on 250-300 mile trips across the AZ desert on rural roads and I hate not having a spare.

    it fits under the tray where the mobility tire kit is located, but it must be a compact spare, if you use a full size spare you may have to modify the storage tray. This is info on the 2013 model, but I don't think in this area of the car its changed on the 2014 in this respect. But as I have not actually seen a 2014 model I can't confirm exactly if this is the case, maybe someone who has can confirm this,
    This is on my 2012 model and this is the same for 2013.

    I just checked on my 2014. It looks the same as the pic but without the spare. Where does one buy a compact spare?

    I was told today - "you don't need a spare, you have roadside assistance for 5 years"

    You can order them from you Kia parts department or search for them on line at ebay. Conwelpic published the part number on them. Or you can do without depending. I don't have a spare in any of my cars but they are all local drivers. If I were on the highway on longer trips, I think I would get one. But in the time that I have had the Souls, only needed roadside assistance (dead battery). They show up pretty fast.

    If you have 17" or 18" wheels and a flat on the front how many miles can you run this mismatch, spare is 16"?

    its a temporary spare, with limit speed 50-80 kmph its designed to be used till as such time you can get the original repaired, which should be as soon as possible. There is no set mileage but its not going to be good for the car if you leave it too long. Compact spares have been around for decades the situation has never changed in its use.
