what is the cheapest spare tire disregarding efficiency?

Sat May 15, 2021 12:41 pm

Guys we all care about even 0.1 of mi/kwh. :mrgreen:
But, I just want to buy a super cheap spare tire just in case I got a flat tire on a road trip, just to make it to next repair shop.
Thanks in advance as always :D

I've read, but not verified, the donut spare from an Altima fits. - 16x4, 66.1 mm center hole, 5 bolts at 114.3 mm ("4.5 inches"). Should be at your local junk yard. (Not sure if Gen2 are the same as Gen1s). Perhaps others can chime in.

Other specs:

205/55R16 on 6.5jx16 ET40 offset w/ bolt pattern 5x114.3mm (i.e. 5 bolts at 4 1/2 “) Ctr bore = 66.1mm.
(overall diameter 24.9”, 811 revs per mile.)

215/50R17 on 6.5jx17 ET46 w/ same 5x114.3 bolt pattern and center bore.
(overall diameter 25.5”, 792 revs per mile.)

They've shown the spare for the above vehicle, and it weighs 3,000lbs. At least it's a full sized spare.

The Gen II Leaf uses the same wheels as Gen I, so I assume that the specs are at least very similar. I ran 17" 2015 Juke wheels on my SL for two Winters. Given that, you may also want to include Juke spares in your junkyard search, although I can't promise a fit.

Haha the picture is funny.

Do you have any suggestions on something new that can be ordered online? (or bought from stores like Walmart or Discount Tire)
I'm really super amateur when it comes to tires :cry:

Please suggest a tire not a website. Thanks so much.
