You are aware that you can get a Volt Spare Tire kit from GM aren't you? It may cost a little more than one you put together from other cars, but it comes with all the hardware to mount it securely in the hatch, jack & lug wrench that fits, and a lovely wheel cover for the spare.I know a number of people have a spare tire for their Volt. I'm looking at a 2011-2017 Chevy Cruze spare tire, but does anyone know if that five lug pattern will match up to a G2 Volt?
I did that when I first got my spare. But then I realized that almost every time I was driving my car, my wife was also NOT at home, so if I had a flat, there was no one at home to call and have them bring my spare. So I just started carrying it all the time. I ended up using it twice on my Gen 1, but so far have not needed it on my Gen 2. It doesn't take up that much space. And if I need the extra space I can move the spare to the floor behind one of the front seats.I only plan to put the spare in the car when taking long trips,
Maybe I can save you some searching heart ache. I listed the parts needed for the hold-down bolt to secure the spare through one of its lugnut holes in this thread: http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread...wn-like-donut-spare&highlight=spare+full+sizeI cannot tell you how many times I have looked at that photo TSquare, admiring the admittedly lovely wheel cover! I only plan to put the spare in the car when taking long trips, so I am considering making up my own mounting hardware (CANNOT just leave it loose back there) and going without the cover.
Then again, I haven't purchased the other spare yet.
