Welcome to the forum cchesley. Sorry, don't know the answer. I'd call Ford Performance and ask them about options.Ford sells a spare tire kit which includes a wheel, tire, jack, wrench and hold down that works with the 2015-16 Mustangs. I have been told that this wheel may not mount to the GT 350's because of the dampening system. Does anyone know this for sure?
I wonder how well the flat fixer they gave us really works. Not only that but it won't seal a puncture in the sidewall either. It's probably next to impossible to find a flat bed that carries race ramps or 2x10s that will load our cars without damage.Read the fine print, more than likely it will not fit on the front. Let us know. I HATE that there is not a spare option for the car I enjoy so much!
Gospel, Porsche would not patch any tire, at the speed ratings they weren't taking the risk, smart practice! This is exactly why I purchase the tire/wheel warranty on cars like thisPlan on replacing any tire that has a hole anyway. With the Speed rating of the tires I would never trust a patch. And if there’s a tread depth difference side to side? Replace both!
For those who might still be looking...Automotive Authority has a spare tire kit - they're on back order until March 2018, about 600 frogskins. I'm going to get one just to be in the safe side. Having a spare is piece of mind even if it's going to get towed you don't want the suspension slammed on a flatbed.
Did the flatbed driver know he was going to load a low clearance vehicle or does he always carry 2x10’s as a precaution?Had to tow mine to the dealer a few weeks ago for a splitter issue (see related post). Flatbed truck had 2x10's on it .... made the tow very easy
Can you explain in more detail please? Someone must have the brake pedal engaged to place the spare tire on the front with the accompanying adapter plate that is part of the GT350 kit from AA? I have recently placed an order and the kit is expected to arrive soon.FYI I bought the spare tire kit from Autmotive Authority. It’s a nice set up but you'll need to have someone around who can hold down the brake when you bolt on the adapter plate for the front wheel.
The adapter is bolted to the wheel first to provide clearance for the spare. So with the wheel and tire off the vehicle how do you keep the spindle from rotating when you tighten the mounting bolts down? The answer is you have someone step on the brakes. Absent a helper you’ll never get the adapter bolted securely into place to then attach the spare rim.Can you explain in more detail please?
