LeatherZ - Space Saver Spare Tire Kits available now

I have the LeatherZ Space Saver Spare Tire Kits available now. If you are moving away from the run flat tires but want the safety and peace of mind of having a spare tire, this is a great solution. This is a donut spare that will not eat up all of your trunk space.

I don't see what would be needed for the 135i. At $245 what is all in this kit? I also want a lightweight jack. I don't want a floor jack in my trunk. I want the donut and a small/lightweight jack. What do I need and how much for everything? I will be ordering a 135i in the future, and even with the run-crap tires I want a spare and jack. I hate the idea of going to work and having one of these POS tires getting a flat. All info and cost/weight needed. Thankyou, Jeff.

The hub on the 135 pushes way out, that gets it over the brakes. I initial thought there was no way, but it clears.

Spare Only–is a donut spare (17" Steel Wheel and Continental Tire–Vinyl covers are included as soon as I get more in stock, I would wait to order until they are listed as available). Weighs 26 pounds (actual).

E82 Toolkit adds a small jack, tire iron, wheel chock and plastic bag for the flat tire. This toolkit could easily be stowed in the area next to the battery. Weighs 4-6 pounds (estimated). Adds $90



Extended toolkit is a larger version of the E82 Toolkit. Weighs 10-12 pounds (estimated). Adds $145

Thanks for the details. So about $400 for the good setup. I plan on ordering this even with the run-crap tires. How would I mount this stuff in the trunk? I guess about 40# is ok. Like 5 gallons of fuel. After the run-craps wear out at 15,000 miles I will have what I need to get non-run-craps. COOL. Thanks again.

LeatherZ:

Is the spare ever going to come with a cover again? The statement on your site makes it seem like you are just out of them but I am sure a few people would like to know.

Also, if you do, will it come in black?

They are on order. I will update the site as soon as I have them. I hate to set a date on when I will get them because the guy who makes them for me is semi-retired and the dates he gives me are never firm.

The cover I sell is black vinyl only.

That is cool. It just seemed open for interpretation and wanted to see which way it went.

Thanks.

Buying the space saver spare and jack are great ideas. Just figure out a way to strap the spare down so it doesn't fly around.

COOL....
