COMPACT EMERGENCY 17" SPARE TIRE
If you switched from run-flat tires to standard tires, here is the Compact Emergency spare for your 2011-current R60 COUNTRYMAN!. Beware of 'similar' space-saver tires from other brands since the hub diameter is most likely the wrong size. If you are shopping at some junk yards for other brands, consider the 'age' of the tire - do you really want a 5+ years old tire as your primary backup??
This 'space saver tire' set-up uses the factory BMW spare wheel with a brand new tire for guaranteed fitment.
Fits the 2011 R60 MINI COUNTRYMAN Cooper, Cooper S and ALL4 models. And YES, it is safe to use on the ALL4 since the ALL4 is in front wheel drive (FWD) mode until you lose traction in the front - only then does the rears kick in.
Sorry, this Compact Spare will not fit in the compartment under the rear floor.
Yes, you can find the wheel from a dealer, tire from a tire shop and get it mounted and balanced - but why bother, we did all the work for you! Mounted, balanced, and ready-to-use.
STORAGE / CARRYING BAG
Heavy Duty storage and carrying bag for the 17" Compact Emergency Spare Tire.

Heavy duty material is water resistant, protecting your interior. A convenient exterior pocket provides storage space for tools, gloves or emergency road flares.
Remember, this is a 'temporary' spare tire to get you directly home or directly to the nearest tire repair center. Get your flat fixed and back on your car AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

NOTE: Driving with the space-saver tire
This spare will trigger a 'flat tire' warning light since it does not have the TPMS sensor.
Drive cautiously. Do not exceed a speed of 50mph/80kph.
You must expect changes in vehicle handling such as lower track stability during braking, longer braking distances and changes in self-steering properties when close to the handling limit. These effects are more pronounced when driving with winter tires.
Only one space-saver tire may be mounted at one time. Reinstall a wheel and tire of the original size as soon as possible.
Check the tire inflation pressure at the earliest opportunity and correct it if necessary. Replace the defective tire as soon as possible and have the new wheel/tire assembly balanced.
Allow 2 weeks for delivery.
For the spare tire without the bag, see G2NMW7610.
