Default Countryman Spacesaver Spare - 26th August 2013, 10:40 AM

I don't own a CM but saw this posted on another forum and thought it may be of interest to some.

Spare Tire Solution~
After extensive measures we have developed a Spare Tire Adapter Kit for your 2011+ Mini Countryman (including S & ALL4 models).
Our Adapter Kit includes a CNC machined aluminum Hub-Centric/Wheel-Centric Adapter & all associated hardware of proper grade strength, mounting socket with handle & a convenient storage case.
The total weight is well under 5lbs & easily fits under a seat or in the hatch under the storage area. This updated version clears both the front & rear calipers. Use it whereever your flat is!

What Else Do I need~
Good Question! You will need a spare *tire/rim & an air compressor. We do not include these items in the kit. Here's why:

- An Air Pump Kit. We simply do not offer any brand of this kit. These are readily available in a variety of kits/brands/sizes. Some include 'Slime' etc. (typically around $20)

- A Compact Folding Spare. You need quite a specific wheel/tire here. It is only available New from a Mercedes Benz dealer & is quite expensive. Hold on..We've discovered these are readily available through eBay, Craigslist & even local Junk yards. (The MB part# is 1704010502 ).

These are typically found on 1998-00 SLK models & many others. This is a 15x4.5" Space Saver Compact Folding Spare. Usually w/ a Veredstein Tire.

- Your factory cone seat wheel bolts. You will need these to mount the Adapter to your car. *if you are running an aftermarket wheel that uses a supplied 'ball seat' bolt, be sure to place 5 of your OEM Cone Seat bolts in the vehicle.

Quite cool - there are a couple of the required Mercedes wheel/tyre combos on eBay at mo: one at 60. So all in you are looking at about 160 or so for a spare wheel kit that fits under flat boot floor.


All 4 one...

The only problem with 60 ebay wheels is the remaining tread, however there are 2 brand new ones with tyres at 130.
Maybe we could do a join purchase to save on shipping.

The M-B compact folding spare uses a different bolt pattern, lower offset & smaller centerbore, as well as bolt size. It's not a direct bolt-on.
Therefore the machined adapter converts your 5x120 Countryman hub to the proper fitment to temporarily accept the MB rim.
Standard Mini factory cone seat wheel bolts are needed to mount the Adapter to your car available from Mini dealers.
I only know of the USA link for the adaptor kit......they should ship to UK if you contact them direct by email for international orders.....their website does not allow international orders:
International Orders
