Looking for a Spare Tire for your MINI Cooper?
At Mini Mania, we have a wide selection - one of which is bound to fit your needs.
Hi gang, its Brendan from Mini Mania, and today's video is just a reminder that Mini Mania sells spare tires. So, for those of you who had run flats on your car or you've maybe swapped over the run flats to the standard wheel and tires, we sell the spare tires that you don't have.
They're available these are original BMW Steel's, they are mounted and balanced. So this would be like an OEM factory type replacement.
We even have carrying bags so you know that you can get for your spares and you can throw them and right in the back of your hatchback. And they're available in all of the various bolt patterns and sizes for all generations of the new mini.
So, if you need one of these, you can go to our website and just type in spare tire in the search term on the new mini site. And that way, for those of you who don't have a factory spare, you no longer have to rely on a can of fix-a-flat or a wrecker to get you to your location and your destination just because you've got a flat tire.

NOTE: Since posting this video, we've seen a lot of inquires on our mini mania forum about "Do mini coopers have spare tires?" and "Where is the BMW/MINI Cooper spare tire located?"
So, to the first question - Do MINI Coopers have spare tires.? The answer is yes, MINIs have a spare but MINI Cooper S models don't come with a spare tire. It does have a smaller diameter run-flat tires but not a true 15" spare tire. (And to boot, no pun intended, run flat MINIs often don't have tire tool kits, making the experience of having a flat tire that much worse.)
The reason the MINI Cooper S models don't have spares is because BMW moved the battery to the rear of the car to make room for the supercharger under the hood. You can however buy a spare tire that will fit your MINI Cooper S. It's a normal 15" tire . Here's a handy article that explains the different and pros and cons to a Mini Cooper Run-Flat Tire
As for where is your spare tire, - For regular BMW Mini Coopers the spare tire is located hanging underneath the rear of the car. You can access it by opening your trunk and using the tire tools that come with your MINI, lower the tire from the inside of your trunk.
Here's a easy video from bavarian auto that explains how to access your spare tire:
