Fellas,

Its only because I receive email updates from AlfaBB, that I learned this morning of the spare tire option --- for Stelvios, which can actually be ordered as a option on the Stelvio build site.....

I imagine it would most certainly be correct for use as a spare for our Giulias....this is about as big as having the stop/start system function they way you would want it to.

Anyway, JoeCab has offered to price one out for people, the Alfa site indicates its a 450 dollar option, no mention of tools, jack, etc.

Ciao,

Jay

I think it is worthwhile even if you have runflats.
there's no point in destroying a good tire if you have the ability to change it.

I suppose a spare could be secured in the trunk or back seat if the space wasn't needed for other uses.

I had a run flat tire for my BMW 135i repaired at a tire store. It was a simple plug repair in the tread area, the same as they would do for a conventional tire. I should add that was several years ago, and there have been no issues with it.

I have had a few done, plugs and patches, never an issue in normal use.

but that only applies if you don't actually run them when flat, the sidewalls will be damaged.

I’m rarely somewhere where I can’t have a friend or family member deliver a spare in an hour or so. I think I am going to just buy an OEM 18” wheel, and mount with cheap rubber, and the get rid of these dreadful all season run flats and mount a set of proper Summer tires.

With the availability of Lyft/Uber, the need for runflats now seems marginal. Worst case I pull over, call an Uber to get Home, get my spare and Uber back to my car.

For rural driving or long trips, I definitely understand, though.
