2014 SRT - want spare tire

Hey all -

It's time to retire the OEM run-flats and I'm going non-run-flat. I'd like to purchase a spare tire (and jack) if anyone is looking to get rid of it.

I heard a guy shaved 2 seconds off the 1/4 mile by saving the weight!! Or, maybe you have AAA and don't want to deal with the spare!

In any case - I'm interested...

Alternative is to get the mopar kit

2014 SRT - want spare tire

I don't think that spare will clear the brembos (the one you posted looks like it's for Cherokees not Grand Cherokees?)

Re: 2014 SRT - want spare tire

on the SRT you have to put the Spare on the back No spare will fit the front.

So if you pop a front you have to remove the rear first then replace the front with the rear.

I switched to Toyo Proxes ST II's and could not be happier. I shaved 3/10ths of a second of my 0-60 (PB is 3.9 seconds)...AND I get 22 MPG's @ 80 mph...PLUS they will last 3-4 times longer than the runflats. To me it was a no brainer, I was not going to spend $2k every year for tires (only got 11k on my OEM's).

I got AAA as my "spare"...fingers crossed!

Yeah - I read about the front spare limitation. I'm just getting it so I don't have a flat (if I go no-spare I'll have one in weeks, guaranteed).

Just talked to the shop today and will be going with the Proxies IIs. Have heard great things. Also getting Hawk ceramic pads on the front to counter the unbearable oem dust.

Thanks for the note!
