Hello everyone.

I just bought a used 03 Corvette. It came without a spare tire or tire wrench. I need to get one but do not know where to find one, or what I would ask for, or what one looks like. I assume it originally came with one of those small temporary spare tires that fit nicely in the spare tire compartment as most new cars do.

Can anyone tell me what I am looking for and where to get one at?

TIA

just curious...    is it still equipped with RUN FLAT Tires...

that might be a reason that it does not have a spare..

if you have a towing service that includes more than the 7 mile basic service.. you might get away without a spare.. as long as you have run flats..


i am not sure that this is the correct number...

19180680 WHEEL KIT. Rear or Spare

that does not look like it comes with a tire..

do you have the owners manual.???? that might describe it better..

if you don't have one. the Owners manuals should be available for a free download online..   if you need a link reply..

i should have told you to check the RPO codes on the sticker...


oops.. there are C4 RPO codes.. not C6 sorry..   you get the idea i hope..

but you still need to see if you have run flat tires mounted on the rims or the inserts
