Does anyone carry a spare wheel for their Kona EV?
What size wheel and tyre did you buy? Some other owners have also found that not all compact spare wheels fit on the rear, and a fullsize wheel is recommended.Having looked on the web to other people's experiences, they say
the spare will only fit the front wheels?
" IT DID NOT FIT! The brake caliper blocks full installation of the small wheel. You can't fully tighten the wheel and it forces the brake pad on the disk. I decided to keep the $250 spare tire & kit anyway for use if I get a blowout in front."
What Electric Pump that "came with car"? My 2020 Ultimate doesn't seem to have one. Only a can of REPAIR FLAT that fills a tire with Goop to repair hole until I get to a repair shop.I had a slow leak through the side wall at about 3000 miles. I used the electric pump that came with the car to drive to the dealer to get a new tire. Easy peasy. No weird tire go used at all.
Without seeing the geometry, might some spacer washers fix that ?Thank you for the warning.
I tried my space saver on the car. It just touched the rear brake calliper perhaps by the thickness of a sheet of paper. It went on but would not rotate and warping under load could make it worse so no slight fettling of the calliper I am afraid.
