Spare Tire SS/RS

For those who are looking for spacers, Adapt It USA sells them at reasonable prices.

You Can Order a a spare from GM - TI55/70R18

Get a jack and lug nut wrench and you are set. My spare fits right over the battery with no problems.

I paid $500 for my spare tire, spacer, jack, and lug wrench for mine as a package. It ALL fits in battery compartment.

I bought a kit from a friend which had the jack, lug wrench & tire for $200.00. Check with your local dealership.

OP, what thickness spacer did you get? I have an early 2010 so I don't have roller skates on my calipers to clear.

I have an early'ish 2010 2SS RS but I just bought it very lightly used two months ago. What are these roller skates you refer to? Any pic to illustrate maybe? Thanks.

Can someone briefly tell me how the adaptor works? Does it fit onto the hub with it's own lug nuts, then you mount the spare onto the adaptor and use the factory lugs to secure it?

If that's the case, how do you tighten the lugs when putting on the adaptor without the hub spinning--at least on the front? What kind of lugs would you get for the adaptor so they are small enough to fit the spare over?

Any info??

It was a fix to dampen for a vibration issue. Early models like mine actually have wheel weights epoxied to the calipers. Open the link provided in post #6 and there is a pic in that thread.

I'd like to know. A poster in the thread from post 6 also said 1.75" I think he bought the kit from Joe off Ebay. Last year on the way back from BBOMG my left front went soft. Was able to stop and put in air and made it home, but found 2 nails in it. Might not be so lucky next time.
Thanks

Damn, is that what all the SS calipers after the early 2010's look like?! I'm no engineer or brake expert by a long shot but what the hell are those things supposed to be and do?

OK, sounds like roller skate calipers require 2.5" and weighted calipers can use 1.75"?

They're supposed to reduce brake squeal, but I can't tell you if they work because my car (built 3/11) doesn't have them.

How do they do this? I have them, and I still have squeal at times, annoying and embarassing on my '11. Do they need to be lubricated in some way?

I appreciate anyone's input on this. It is one truly problematic part of such an amazing vehicle.

Thanks,

Jason

You just chose any of the 5x 120 models. It also asks you if your vehicle has lug bolts, does what do you check here? And would the 1.8 inch thick work if you do not have the roller skates? Do you have a part number for the one you ordered.

So would adding that weight make the Camaro 50/50?
