Spare Tire Setup

Got tired of the drama of riding around with no spare. I rarely use my trunk for anything other than groceries...fold down the rear seat instead...and can still fit a fair amount in the trunk with this setup (unless the roof is in the trunk, of course).

So...I ordered the spare tire kit with tray (Bimmerzone), cargo net and Tire Totes (OEM), and a Gorilla extendable lug wrench and set of tire felts (TireRack) and used a ratcheted tie-down strap (PepBoys) to hold it in place. I laid it on a drop cloth and snuck in a set of jumper cables.

Now...flat out no worries, mate.
