  • Spare tire

    I don’t know if I missed it, but where is the spare tire? There are so many good posts on the C8, I honestly have not had the time to read each and every one. I tried to search, but the forum was having issues at the time. If I missed it, please steer me in the right direction of the post.

    As always Thanks for all the fantastic information.

    Regards Brian

    No spare. LIke the C7, it comes with runflat tires. Many C7 owners carry a kit with some tire plugs, a bottle of flat sealer, and a small compressor. Walmart sells a nice kit that fits in the storage cubby in the back of the C7.

        I carry a miniature tire compressor (plugs into the cigarette lighter and worked perfectly when my dash alerted me to zero pressure in one tire, easily re-pumped it to 38 PSI and drove to a tire store. I also carry a tire plug kit and a aerosol can of “QUICK SPAIR” (TPMS safe).

          Thank You !
          I have run flats on another car, but it still has a mini spare. I currently do not have a C7. Don't have a C8 either yet. Heading to Les Stanfords on August 20 to take a look. Just one less thing I have to inquire about.

          THANKS
          Regards Brian

                Yes, see below (the oval logo says "ZP" (Zero Pressure) which is Michelin's code for runflat
