Maybe there is a zippered bag where you can simply put the spare in the cargo area. Or if you have a roof box the. It can surely go there.

We're still going to order one and put it in the well during trips, but the floor won't be flat over it.
Thanks for trying this. It's a bummer that it doesn't fit cleanly, but it sounds like it would be manageable in a pinch. I wish they had just put the spare tire on the opposite side of the vacuum.

Or make run-flat tires std with the vacuum option

Why not carry a bottle of "Slime" and use the inflator that comes with the no-spare-models

The no spare folks actually do get an inflator that includes tire sealant. Mine has it at least.

I didn't get a spare tire with my Pacifca but I did get this neat inflator. The knob at the top left switches to "slime mode".

That slime is better than nothing, but still not a substitute for a spare tire. It will only work for small leaks and will likely destroy the TPMS sensor.

I heard that slime can harden in your tire and make it unbalanced if you drive for too long and I think driving on an unbalanced wheel can create further problems. It's one of the reasons why I preferred those patch kits, doesn't take long to patch and the kit is small enough that it fits in your glove box.

I bought my Ltd off the lot, so had no choice of specs. I doubt if I will ever use the vacuum, but I would really feel safer with a spare tire. So I was thinking of removing the vacuum and installing the Mopar spare into the space. May eventually need to buy the correct rear panel (Mopar # 5RK06PD2AC).



Any comments?

I just bought the inflatable spare tire kit (even though I don't have the van yet). It looks like it comes with everything you would need except the rear panel. For the tire kit and the rear panel, you're probably looking at around $400.

I do want to keep the vac, so I'm hoping I find a good spot to put the spare. If the Stow-N-Go well is the best place, I'll probably just end up taking it with me on longer trips.
