It doesn't work that way. They are all the same height and that's what matters.

FYI: The CTS-V has the LSA motor, staggered wheels AND a performance compact spare.

Spare tire isn't really needed and you get a temp repair kit that isn't really needed.

I had a tire go flat, hit a piece of metal on the freeway.
The car has a temp repair kit that doesn't really work for large holes. The sealant goes right out the hole.

Point of the story, I called onstar, told them what happened. They connect me with GM roadside assist. Roadside assist asked me a few questions, they confirmed the exact location of the car via GPS, took my cell number and sent me text messages telling me exactly when the tow truck would arrive. Truck showed up exactly 35 minutes later. I was watching the time, had to if someone is sending me messages giving me an update.

While on the phone with the assist rep I was a little concerned they would send out a truck and lift up the front so I requested a flatbed, the rep told me that the car type is already flagged in their system to dispatch a flatbed.
The tow truck driver took me to my preferred dealer for the repairs. The preferred dealer was 45 miles away.

I know folks don't want to pay for onstar but you really can't beat what you get with it even if you have to pay a $200 per year.

It's a sports car, not an SUV. Almost every sports car comes with out one. You guys need to cry about something else or buy something else. No spare comes with the territory.

locally it's no big deal but on long trips I keep an extra tire/wheel in the trunk of my SS. This plus AAA and I will not get stuck @ 3:00 AM in the middle of nowhere or in a motel for 2-3 days while a tire shop looks for a replacement-
Just old school I guess.

Then, I sold that set up because I decided to buy some skinnies for the track and figured I could just use one of those for a spare.
CTS-V spares as front runners on GINGER


The only hard part of piecing together your own kit is that the spacer needed is not an in stock part, I lucked out and pieced together my first kit for about $180. There are many companies that can custom make you a spacer, just make sure it is 5x120mm (NOT 5x120.7mm/5x4.75") and 66.9 mm (i used 67.1 mm) hubcentric.
I read your information but I am sure that I completely understand. Does the CTS-V come with a spare tire that clears the six piston Brembo brakes? If so, does it need a spacer and is there any reason why it would not work on the ZL1?

Oh yeah, I forgot the ZL1 brakes are pretty much just like the CTS-V brakes, huh? The CTS-V spare "should" fit on the ZL1 with out a spacer.

If anyone in the DFW wants to try my CTS-V spares on the front of their ZL1 when they get it let me know and we can meet up.

With CF3 not too far away now, does anyone know for sure if the CTS-V spare fits the ZL1 without a problem AND fits in the trunk under the carpet as well?

I was wrong, the spare is off the regular CTS not the V. CTS-V guys run this spare with a spacer.
