Here is the best option for anyone that has decided the run flats were not the tire for them anymore (everyone?), but are afraid of running around without a spare. This spare tire will fit behind your seat for long road trip or day to day driving. Also this tire will fit in the spare tire well in the Clubman S! Also see the Clubman mount kit that we sell!

This new spare comes mounted and ready to use. Nothing could be easier. As an added bonus, we installed a sticker on it for quick and easy reference to show you to keep inflated to 60 PSI & to install in the rear! We also install a 2 inch valve stem to make checking and filling the air pressure easier. This wheel is a stock MINI spare tire rim and will fit over most front brakes that the MINI has, but will fit over ALL REAR brakes on the MINI UNLESS you have the JCW brake option (Brembo kit) on a generation 2 car (find needed adapter here to clear the rear brakes). And for safety, you should always run a spare tire on the rear. No Spacers, adapters, or special lugs needed to make this work with your MINI. This spare is about 22" in diameter and a little over 5" thick. This is the correct size spare for all MINIs no mater what size wheel and tire you have. This is designed to be used in an emergency situation for 60 miles or less and under speeds of 50 mph. By using this you will not cause any damage to the vehicle if driven in a normal manner.


Looking for a bag? Find our new bag here!

Fits every MINI except the new R60 MINI Countryman or the R61 Paceman. Find that Spare Tire here.

Finish Note: We can do custom colors, almost anything you want for $80.00. Just give us a call and let us know what you want. We had an old spare from our shop Cooper that had some rust that we tried in red for something different! Match the color of your car today!

Note: If you have a Cooper R50 or a Cooper Clubman R55, you already have a spare tire.

Note: Will NOT fit Generation 2 cars with the JCW BREMBO Kit unless you buy this adapter kit HERE.

    Piece of Mind

    Posted by Coop on 10th Feb 2021

    Ever since I bought this, which fit nicely in the back behind the back seat, I have not had a flat tire nor have i lost any air in my tires!
    I would therefore conclude that they are doing an excellent job, as advertised.

    Great solution

    Only fits on the back (as stated) and needs a spacer, but, if you have got rid of the run-flats, it works well. I did have to modify the syrofoam spare wheel well insert to make it fit.

    My sister recently bought a 2013 Countryman S,the run flat tires were replaced with standard tires by previous owner. I bought the donut so she would have something for emergencies. Fast shipping,good quality,totally satisfied.

    speedy dilivery with little extras in box

    Spare tire for the R53 Mini Cooper S where the exhaust blocks the spare wheel well. Ratchet strapping the wheel up against the rear seats by using one of the seat latch hoops for the strap and turning the dish of the wheel towards the seats works best. Then, the luggage cover needs a little trimming from the front edge which is not noticeable when in place.
    Mini dropped the ball here by offering an S for the car enthusiast but no spare for those most likely to need and want a spare!

    Good buy

    Fast shipping. I have an r53 and it fits in the trunk nicely. Appears to be good quality but I don’t plan to use it unless I get a flat. It’s nice not to need run flats anymore though.

    Just as I hoped

    I'm not a big online buyer and am always apprehensive about not getting the right thing and having to send it back but this tire was just right and I'm very pleased with the purchase. As soon as I got it, I put it on the rear of my 07 Mini S Sidewalk Convertible and drove it 10 miles. All was well. THX Detroit Tuned. DAT

    Perfect Spare for Mini Clubman

    Posted by M J Heindel on 30th Aug 2017

    If you have run flat tires on your Mini and need to replace them for wear, you may be in shock at the cost. I was and went for regular tires and a spare tire. The spare I bought was from Detroit Tuned at a reasonable price and fast shipping; great customer service too. Tire fits in the storage well in my Clubman perfectly. I hope that I won't ever need it but am prepared if I do.

    great spare

    Posted by Matt on 5th Dec 2016

    I have a 2005 cooper s. I'm running regular tires on the car and there isn't a place for a spare. I wanted something that would be able to tuck away but still be able to get to. This spare tire fits right behind the passenger seat very well. Just what I was looking for.

    It was exactly what I expected. Good quality and fits perfectly in the rear wheel storage area of the 2012 Clubman S.
