Cayman Spare Tire

Recommended Posts

I was able to retrofit a spare wheel with jack and took kit from an older Boxster (986) into my 2007 Cayman (987.1). Clears front lid without touching.  Takes up some of the space but I prefer spare and regular tires as opposed to run flat tires.

Is this the skinny inflated tire?  I thought they were too tall to close the hood properly?   And that the collapsed tire (that needed to be inflated) was a better choice.  Can you report on the total diameter of this spare?  Thanks.

It helps to carry a large trash bag to put it in since it needs to go in the passenger compartment.  Thats what I had in my Boxster.  There's a guy at the Cayman Register that showed a rather inelegant mounting on the engine cover/rear trunk with the decklid secured with bungi-cords.  Works for short distances when you have a passenger.    I guess its "any port in a storm"!

Or in the passenger’s lap?


Thanks. I’m in the market and the spare tire issue has nagged at me a bit.

      Hello, I have just part ex'd my beautiful 2009 Carrera S for a Cayenne as we are expecting a baby, needs must and all that.
      I am delighted with the Cayenne, its a 2011 diesel with a high spec and 21 inch turbo 2 rims. After the purchase I was irritated to hear from the dealer that there is no space saver option for that size wheel, just the tube of gunk and a compressor.
      I am going to spend a lot of my time now driving from the UK to France where my parents live and I shudder to think what will happen if I have a full blow out on a French autoroute on a Sunday afternoon in a country that shuts down on the weekend.
      Does anyone know of any aftermarket options?
