Spare tire?

Hello Any current replica manufacturer offer a nose that'll accept a full size spare as the original?
Thanks

Re: Spare tire?

Superformance will...if you are willing to give up the A/C! AAA card and a can of fix-a-flat is the real answer.

Spare? My dear Sir...one does not change tires on the road, one calls for service while you have tea.

Quite right, ole chap. Quite. 'Terribly uncivilized to do otherwise.


(Since I'm "uncivilized" myself, a flat tire repair kit and a 12 volt electric tire pump reside in both of our daily drivers. A kit and pump from one of the cars is always swapped into whichever hot rod we might take out on any given weekend. Regardless, our AAA card also accompanies us!)

Re: Spare tire?

Spare, what do you do with the one you take off. it would be tough to put one of the wide rear tires under the hood.

AAA and a can of flat fix is the way i go

Re: Spare tire?
