Spare tire

My 2013 elantra did not come with a spare tire. Are there any older Hyundai cars that use the same spare tire?

Welcome. Glad you joined us.

This is about as good a time as any to introduce you to the forum's "search" feature. Using "spare tire" as your key words will get you going. There have been a lot of discussions on this topic. I'm certain you'll find what you're looking for.

Upon your suggestion I tried the search feature. I found a lot of different views, but never found exactly what I wanted in two hours of reading. I am wanting a donut for the elantra. I found a kit on ebay that includes everything but the rubber tire itself for $125 including shipping. The rim requires tire size T125/80R15 or T125/80D15. Does anyone know of any place to get either of these tires for cheap? They appear to be oddballs and the rubber tire costs more than the kit. Lastly, are these tires hard to put on the rim or can any automotive place do this? I have heard stories of these being low profile and hard to get on the rim.

I'm just going to go with the complete spare tire kit offered by my dealer as the car didn't come with a jack or any tools, either. I think they're asking around $200 for the full monty.

Havent seen one of these threads in a while. To answer your question baaically any spare tire from any Hyundai, Kia, or any number of foriegn cars with 5x114. 3 bolt pattern will fit. Several of us had luck with craigslist, junkyards, or used tire dealers.

I just got one as a birthday gift, my father was worried that I'd get a flat on my way into work (3:30 am) that it would suck trying to use the air pump kit. It will suck changing a tire too but it's nice knowing it's there. Interesting thing is my best friend who owns a service station got it for him and I noticed it had a tag on it with a bunch of numbers, one of which was a VIN. I Googled it and it took me to a salvage web site saying it was a 2009 Elantra wagon that was totaled with front end damage with 34,124 miles on it...hope the spare isn't jinxed!!!
It came with the Styrofoam insert with the jack and handle but it didn't have the plate and bolt to hold it in place, found one on ebay for 16 bucks...might check the parts counter to see what the real cost is.

I ended up just breaking down and buying a factory donut kit. Was $200 with shipping. Is a bit steep, but I am sure it will be worth it in the event of a flat. I am a bit skeptical about the foam provided. It seems a lot of people think it has the ability to mess up your wheel tire pressure sensor, which costs about $200. I'd rather just have the spare than replacing wheel sensors.

I ordered the Hyundai spare tire kit part # 3XF40-AC910
And the donut tire 125/80/T15 part # 1600031. The tire is shipped separate and needs to be mounted to the new wheel.

I took the more expensive route and picked up an OEM Hyundai Elantra wheel from allfactorywheels and then bought a Falken 17" tire. Had Tires Plus put it on and then plopped it into the trunk for a full size spare. I think the final cost for everything was about $320.

It's definitely not the best option for anyone looking to save some money, but I just wanted to throw it out there for anyone else who wants a full size spare with no speed restrictions and even a spare wheel in case you scuff one of your factory wheels up.

My old Jetta's full size spare spoiled me forever.
