  1. Wheels, Tires, Brakes - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Hello, I just recovered a Gen 1 Cadillac CTS spare tire at the junkyard. Upon further inspection at home, I see some mounting holes for the spare donut are worn in. Maybe from over tightening the bolts with pneumatic tools. Anyways, my question is - is this spare still usable in an emergency...
  2. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    I do remember reading some posts from years ago on the general subject of spare tires / donut tires for the Volt, but I couldn't seem to find any after an admittedly brief search. Sometimes I wonder what kind of hassle it would be to deal with a flat when I'm way out in the boonies on a road...
  3. Chevy Bolt EV Accessories, Mods, Wheels & Tires
    The Chevy Bolt comes with 17" x 6.5J offset 44, cast aluminum wheels with Michelin all-season Energy Saver A/S 215/50R17. The tires are ~25-7/16" diameter. These are self-sealing tires, except for punctures on the outer edges of the tread or in the sidewall. So, you may need a spare, whether to...
  4. Wheels, Tires, Brakes - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Just to add to the body of knowledge on Gen 1 Spare tires: With just a little cutting of the rear cargo area floor cover, a spare can be mounted upright and held in place using existing cargo mounts. I use the portable charger at home, so it’s rarely in the car, and even if it is with me, I’m...

    My 2017 has 17" wheels. And when looking at the posts about adding a spare tire dounut the size that is recommended is 16" wheel. Is that appropriate for the 2017 ? Thanks

    I'm selling (1) spare wheel (tire not included) fro $175. I'm keeping one for myself for a spare tire since I've just received my first flat on this car. This is the LTZ trim Y-Spoked wheel.
  7. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    Hello: I feel that the spare tire is worth the money. It only took me a 1/2 hour to install. I ordered it from my dealer. I believe it was a little over $400.00. You just have to get the tire put on the rim. The kit comes with a jack and tire iron. While I don't like to waste money, if I get...

    I know more and more cars are not coming with a spare tire. But I wanted to know what everyone here does in the real world when they get flat tires on their Volt? Do you have to get towed to a dealer to get the flat replaced or repaired?

    After 2 years and 1 month, my luck finally ran out with the OEM tires. As I turned onto the street that my Mom lives on, I heard an unusual sound come from the back of my Volt that I could not immediately identify. About 3 seconds later the source of the sound became obvious as a message popped...

    For those who want to carry a spare tire on long trips in case they get an unfixable flat, or who simply don't want to wait for a tow truck, here's an idea for mounting the spare to the cargo deck using off-the self hardware. It would require a hole be drilled in the rear cargo deck, one that...
