Welcome to the forum! The dealer has a spare tire kit that fits in the space beneath the carpeted trunk liner. If you get it, they'll need to remove the air compressor and sealant kit that's currently stored there in favor of a caddy that slips into that space and houses the tire, jack and tools.I agree. So do you pay dealer for a spare & is there still space to store it under trunk space?
if you do a search for Spare Tire Kit you’ll see a few posts. Here’s one with some pictures. While some consider it pricey for something you may never use, look at it like insurance.Thanks
