Anyone have full sized spare for LS?

I'm planning on going on a long drive in my camaro ls in a few months and would feel more comfortable if I had a spare. Normally I don't worry, but I don't want to be stuck on the highway in the middle of no where waiting an hour for AAA to come tow me.

Has anyone bought a full sized spare for their LS? I'm wondering where is a good place to get the 18" tire + wheel for a good price. I'm planning on getting a scissor jack and lug wrench off of amazon. Also, is there a good way to tie down the tire in the trunk, since it won't fit in the wheel well?

I wish it came with a spare, but all the LS in my area came with the pump and sealant.

You could order the spare that comes from GM as an option.
I have one coming on my 2LT that is on order, but I have never actually seen a Camaro with the spare to see if it will fit in all locations on the car.

Why didn't you want it?
It fits under the floor in the trunk doesn't it?
Did GM also provide a jack?

Seems better to at least have something to put on the car to get off the highway, even if you just drive a short distance to a safe location to try to repair the full size tire.
You could always carry both.

If you order the spare for the camaro, YES, if fits under the floor in the trunk, and YES, if your ordered the spare you DO get a jack with it.

Check your window sticker. You paid extra for that spare tire.

I don't think any Camaros come with spares as standard equipment, but V^ models can get the space saver spare as an option. A full size spare won't fit in the well in the trunk.

If you want to buy a full size tire/wheel, go into a Discount Tire Store. They always have low price options available, and finding one in 18" shouldn't be a problem.

Or check the member classified on this site and EBay for another V6 owner who has upgraded his wheels. There are plenty available - you'll just need to find someone willing to split up a set.

My v6 had the option. Was quite expensive.. 140-240 i think. Could get a junk yard/ebay gto spare if your cars a v6 i think. Gto had a black aluminum spare, camaros uses a steel wheel.
