Can someone explain the spare tire option

I am looking at a 1SS and it appears that it does not come with a spare tire; it is an option. I would like to have a spare and wanted to know the RPO code and how it fits in the car; that is will change anything drastic compared to another 1SS that does not have the spare option. TIA!

A spare tire is a 150 dollar option, (N65) and there is a well in the trunk floor the spare goes into...

The spare tire option is not available on the SS.

According to the ordering workbook, the spare tire is not available on the SS. http://www.camaro5.com/goods/camaroorderingworkbook.pdf

N65 is a compact spare, it will not fit on the ss, and the spot in the trunk spare tire on the ss if where the air compressor is. Montrose

Thanks for the replies!

Sorry for the ignorance in the latest tire technology but are any of you not worried about getting a flat?

I'm not. The SS comes with tire sealant and an air compressor so you can get somewhere to get it fixed. Also if you keep Onstar they can send someone out to help you.

That's why AAA is for... This car won't be a daily driver for me so if I get a flat it won't be a big deal.

Sorry that I wasn;t thinking about the SS, I was just thinking about the LS we ordered..

FYI, I have been driving a Saturn Sky with no spare tire since March of 2006...
In May of 2006 I was out at 4 inthe morning, and hit a curb and busted two tires on it, it would not have mattered having a spare or not in that situation, but since then I have not had a need for a spare or to use the sealant.
Just think when was the last time you had a flat? and needed your spare tire?

Save your money. You will have roadside assistance 1-800-CHEVUSA for 5yrs/100,000 miles. They use the same vendor set as AAA.

last year my dad, brother and i each got a flat on our motorcycles. mine was the worst as it happened while leaving indy on memorial day headed to chicago and very few places were open. My brother and dad also have gotten a flat on each of their cars in the past year. 2008 wasn't a good year to be a tire in our family.

So my 2LT, with the spare tire option, should have the spare in a well out of site with a jack then; if I understand correctly here.

Timely post. I got a flat on I-95 North bound at 5:00 AM today outside the Baltimore Md tunnel. AAA (which I only joined 2 weeks age) was there in less than 30 minutes. I couldn't ask for better sevice.

The battery is larger w/the V8 , so the the spare will not fit in the well.

Yes, The spare will be under the trunk carpeting. Underneath the spare will be the jack, lug wrench, and straps to keep the flat tire from sliding around in the trunk, and the battery.

While I can't comment on the size difference of the batteries in the V6 & V8 (I would assume they are the same dimensional size tho), that is not why a spare is not included with the SS. There is not enough room in the trunk to fit a spare wheel large enough to clear the Brembo brakes. The little donut spares are way too small for the big brakes on the SS.

It is really the Brembo calipers. The spare wheel will not clear the calipers...hence no spare available. 1-800-CHEV USA

That's kinda normal for towing. It's not emergency services or a pizza.
