Compact Spare ?

Is there going to be a full spare if we dont order this or no spare at all?

The SS will not have a spare at all - no option too. The LT and LS can get a spare as an option.

this is in the wrong thread, there is no spare for ss there is for ls and lt its on the options list, however it is under constraint, so not many LS or LT will get it. No full size spare available.

How does tire sealer help you if your tire gets shredded?

I guess this'll just make more money for OnStar

I wonder if the TPMS or GOOP will be differnt than what I had on my 03 Z06??

If you used the supplied GOOP and had the TPMS installed (which you could on the Z06 even though GM didn't include them when new) you ruined the TPMS. A new one cost $55 and required the tire to be dismounted to replace it.

Regular goop kills the TPMS hwoever there is another "flavor" of goop that does not from what I hear. I would assume that is what they include.

Also if you have 2 flats at one time (like I did on my Sky, but even the compact spare won't help in that case) it does not help because the sealer is only good for one use...
I called OnStar and it took an hour before someone came to help me... and I was in the City....of course it was 4am when I called...

I keep onStar just for things like this, it is handy for other things too.

Besides even if it isn't an option on the camaro you purchase I bet you can get a compact spare as a dealer installed option.

but then again you would have been screwed anyways since you wouldn't have had 2 spare tires anyways.

I've only needed a spare a couple of times in the past 10 years or so. However, I did order one. It will be there if I need it and not familur with the repair and fill kit. Would I be wrong to assume that it can loose pressure and be worthless after a time????

keep in mind a "compact" spare will be just that.... Compact. with the size of the brakes on the SS, a spare donut is worthless. you would need a full size replacement tire. for the v-6, you can go with a smaller spare that will fit the smaller brakes.

A normal spare won't fit over the Brembos. If we were given a spare that was large enough to actually fit it'd be expensive and add to the curb weight of the car which so many have already complained about so bitterly.

Because all or almost all of the compact spares have the limit of under 50 mph.

I was under the impression that "constraint" meant not available thus creating a delay. And I think the OP had the same thoughts "however it is under constraint, so not many LS or LT will get it" . I know what a compact spare is and the limitations for driving on one is, I want to know how he knew there was a problem with availability!

DoNut spare

I ordered it but do have a question. Since it is not standard, where does it wind up to be stored? Right in the middle of the trunk where luggage might otherwise go??????

I'm almost positive, (not worth much ) that there is a void under the truck for it. If I'm not mistaken you can see it on the IVER car in the Indy images thread.

Here you can see part of the well cover and see the positive battery cable going down into it because the floor carpet piece is missing.

Is the battery located in the trunk or is that for a booster for the stero with a large AMP?
