Spare tire/canister no tools?

I elected not to order the $150 spare tire cause I figured I'd buy one at the junky for alot less. Does anyone know if a 19 inch spare will fit in the trunk cause it sounds like the spare isn't the same size as a 19 inch tire. And if you did go with the canister where the hell is the jack & tools ? Boy 30K and no tools, pretty cheap GM, regardless of the canister.BOOOO

Yeah for 30K plus at least give me a tire iron. What if I want to put wheel locks on ?
What am I suppose to use my teeth, cmon GM get with it, it must cost GM pennies for a tire/iron & jack. Besides I bought 10 to 12 cars in my life so far and NEVER did the car come without a donut & tools, gimme a break !!!
And if you happen to use the canister then you have to get another one from GM, yeah what's the price on that?
and how long to order it (like the car...lol) ? and what are you suppose to use in the meantime?
Great car but still old company policies, sorry GM no excuses !!!

Hey paul whats up? Everything is good. The summer is gone, but I'm getting it itch to get back to work. Its good to be retired though.
I went out to OBI last week around 10. I drove by Bellmore Sunday morning at 9ish, and didn't see anyone. so I stopped off some place and then went to OBI. I'm going to head out to OBI again sunday morn and on the way back hit Bellmore. Let me know if you're definitly going to be in Bellmore and I'll be there.. Enjoy your trip and stay dry brother!!
