I bought a spare tire for my car and it's an odd size.

I wonder if bros can help locate a place to get a tire for this?

 

And how often do you replace the tire?

 

Thanks

 

 


I've asked a couple of the more popular stores and they say they don't have this?

looks like a space saver spare tyre.

 

hard to find locally cos very very very low demand so tyre importers will not bring in.

 

 

if really want a spare tyre, suggest to get a full size rim n tyre which are same size as your regular tyres.

That's what I did. And I threw out the original space saver spare.

sorry dont scold me for stupid idea.

why do you want to replace it?

if really need 

you can try to find this size or similar size motor cycle tire , BUT I said BUT basically the problem for motor cycle tire is the Weight need to carry a sedan can is some problem , if no choice put the MC tire and if really need to drive on it just drive slow speed (may be maximum 50km/h) enough  for you to drive to nearest workshop for Help.

getting a full size is the Best option that provided your compartment is big enough to accommodate . 

otherwise try google and do remember to check is the tire stored too long.

Thanks bros, I just need the tire.

This tire is less than ten years old, so I don't want an older tire.

This is disconcerting news for owners of such tyres knowing that the availability of such tyres is scarce.

Last time when I tried to replace one that was already cracked was unsuccessful. Ended up bought a can of tire inflator/sealer for emergency and drove till scrap.

maybe ask the car's Authorised Dealer for advise?

 

please don't fit a motorcycle tyre. It may look the same but different construction and load rating.

I imported the spare, AD doesn't carry spares..

I do long jaunts up north, so a spare is useful and those run flats I'm currently using feel stiff..

But I might have to go for more RFT when I change.. double insurance...

Options
Stick with your current old or aged compact spare tire
Ask AG for ordering new spare (prepare to pay some money)
Go junk yard try your luck (not sure will there entertain you and cost ?& how old are those Junk )
Change to runflat tire (prepare for the extra cost and ride comfort will be compromise)
Install a tire pressure monitoring system(if your car doesn't has )

Thanks bro

Keeping it for now until I can find a new tire

Already looking at Pirelli P7 RFT to replace my current RFTs..

TPMS - check...

 

It's been quite useful, and I have a healthy appreciation for the benefits after I encountered 3 nail punctures recently... 

 

If not for the RFTs, I will need a lot more help fixing my tires..

My own contractor!

Initially I thought it might be a nasty neighbour... or even some student at work..

But I realised what the issue was later on.. and the nails all look the same..

His troops keep leaving all kinds of rubbish around.. I have a holy tire... ha ha

Can try Michelin PS3 RFTs. Find the ride less harsh & is quieter than the RFT Bridgestone Porenza I had been using for my other rides.
Just changed to a new set after clocking 32,000km. Downside is that it wears out faster than the Potenzas, which I usually change around 40k km.

Correction: Michelin P3, not PS3.

Scrap yard also have accident car that are beyond economical repair. So not 100% all cars there are 10 years old.



I am also looking for space saver tyres for my upcoming drive up to BKK. Difficult to find as my model in SG dont come with spare tyres.

probably easier to find a full size spare?

Also, consider that it may not be easy to find the correct tyre size (if need replacement) in ulu areas. Probably have to go to big city for that.

 

I also carry a tyre repair kit (plug + air compressor) in addition to a full size spare.

In fact, I considered carrying two full size spares for my long trips to north thai but decided one is probably enough. Turns out I didn't even have any punctures lol

Already have full size spare + 3 different brands tyre liquid foam filler + tyre repair kit + original car maker tyre repair kit with compressor. Also have spare compressor and battery powered hand drill.

Hope to find a space saver tyre to reduce weight and boot space.
