There is not. You could buy the collapsible tire kit (p/n 82214534AB - about $300-400) available for the gas Pac and put it in the cargo area, or on a roof rack for a long trip. There are also a handful of people who have replaced their stock wheels/tires and you may be able to find one of those on the used market, but you would still have to contend with finding a place to store it while underway.

After over 10000 miles in my eHybrid Pacifica I finally ran over some broken glass and damaged a tire. The Chrysler provided Tire service kit sealant slowed the leak, but the tear in the channel of the tread was too great. I made it to the tire dealer, barely. Thinking about buying the collapsible tire kit.

No, it's not officially compatible because it can't be mounted anywhere in the PacHy. The tire itself will mount to a PacHy in the place of a flat tire, but you have to find your own place to store it until you need it. The mounting hardware that comes with the kit is completely useless for the PacHy, but the tire does work.

That "Hanging Hardware" isn't useful for those of us with a gas model and a vacuum either. However, the tire and jack are quite useful and would be to the PacHy owner as well. I think you would have to figure out a way to keep the tire standing up on the tread to have it not eat up too much cargo space. Also, a cover of some kind would make it more palatable if it is going to be ever-present in the cargo area. I think it would be relatively easy to make a wooden box base for the kit (I would still want a cover). You would only need to cary it when on a back-woods trip or a long trip with plenty of country-side where you don't know how long a repair service would take.

The P/N 82214534AB has been discontinued. Do you guys know if there is a newer P/N for the kit or, an alternative collapsible tire kit that is compatible with the Pacifica?


Thanks.

My local dealer had only one Spare Tire Kit in stock. The P/N: 82215588AE



This newer kit came with everything the old P/N 82214534AB had, plus a Black Closeout Panel DX9 that is meant for the Gas Pacifica. Anybody interested in this closeout panel, please PM me.

Got my 2018 PacHy 2 weeks ago. Told the dealer I wanted the spare tire kit, even though it is 'not compatible' with the hybrid because there is no place to store it. He said he ordered one, but I'm not sure what exactly he ordered. But my thought is I want a spare tire for long trips. I don't have much experience with AAA or roadside assistance to know how soon they arrive.
