Default Spare Tire for 2013 Accent SE

Will the instructions in the sticky for adding a real spare tire work for a 2013 Accent SE with 16 inch wheels with front and rear disk brakes?

Look in your manual, and it will state the correct wheel and tire size of the compact spare. With that info call junkyards and tire stores until you find what you need. I have a 2012 accent se with 16 inch wheels and 4 wheel disc. The wheel that I found was from a 2008 chev cobalt and found a tire of the correct size elsewhere. $20.00 for the wheel and tire and $15.00 to mount it. PIA, but I feel much better with the spare in the back, I had a scissor jack and tire iron so I have a complete spare tire kit for $35.00. I'm afraid even if the Hyundai GOO sealed a tire it would probably ruin the tire pressure sensor, shame on Hyundai for no spare tire. As noted elsewhere Canadian Accents still come with a spare. Good luck.

Most people don't realize this but the componets across all the 2012 models are the same. Same axels, same brakes, same everything, so if it works for one model it will work for all. And being that you have a 2013 SE that had 4 wheel disc then yes the instructions in the sticky will be fine.

To throw a monkey wrench into the works, I do not know if the new drum setup on the 2013 GS and GLS require a different rim size, but if Hyundai is still using the same factory rims then the instructions in the sticky should still be ok.

I assume the 2008 Cobalt rim was an emergency donut rim. Would the tire from such a rim work or was it to far off from correct size?

Yes, the rim is a 15" compact wheel, and the tire it had on it would have worked in an extreme emergency but it's diameter was quite a bit small due to it's side wall height. The tire I found was the correct size as per the owners manual and fills out the wheel well quite nicely.

the 14" wheel with the 175/70-14 tire has the same rolling diameter as the 195/50-16 tire and 16" wheel.
I bought a used 14" Kia Rio wheel off ebay and got a new hankook 14" tire locally. Rides fine in the back of the accent in place of that foamy spacer.
And I have a full sized spare that can roll just fine with the other wheels - no need to slow down.
I also bought a hyundai jack and toolkit off ebay, too. Done.

Here is what I am finding. Hundai parts sold as kit and seperatly. Correct rim $100. Tire outrageous. Discount tire has the correct donut tire for $40. They said they would find a used jack and lug wrench for free.

OK, new spare installed. Mounted it what many would consider upside down allowing a lot of storage in center of donut rim. Got metric stud, wing nut and new quart size paint can lid from best hdwe. Put stud in tight, drilled hole in paint can lid, layed a piece of rubber down on bottom of well to prevent rattling and firmly installed tire, clamped down with paint can lid, fender washer, lock washer and wing nut. Had a spare long breaker bar, 21 mm socket and 13/16 deep spark plug wrench, they both fit lug nots. Wrapped this long tool and jack tools together in some rubber and laid along side of tire. Did same for jack and it fit on front side of tire. Inside rim there was room for soft tool bag full of existing cheap tools, 3/8 and 1/4 socket set, compressor and slime container. Great insurance to prevent a future flat.

As an aside, Discount Tire said if you put slime in tire they might not be able to repair it and the ruined air pressure monitor would likely cost more than the new tire.
