SL55 AMG Space Saver spare tire setup

Mercedes-Benz Space Saver spare tire. Vredestein Space Master P195/75-18 .
251 Type spare.
Never used. Requires the compressor to inflate for use. Compressor to run ~ 8 minutes.

This space saver spare was converted for use on a Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG. It may fit other models with the larger brakes. (SL63, SL65, E55 etc.) It came from a 2007 R class R-350.

I used epoxy to put a spacer on the hub side of the spare so as to fit on the larger rotor/caliper of my 2003 SL55 AMG. (see the pics) I also bought longer stud bolts to mount the spare onto either the front or back of my SL55 AMG. I trial fitted it to both the front & rear of the car and it fits perfectly.

It also fits into the spare tire well of the SL55 AMG perfectly. I cut about a ¼ inch semi-circular bit out of the forward cardboard edge of the trunk mat support to be able to lift out this spare from the well. I stored the lug bolts and compressor in the tire. This is on top of the jack & handle.

It works just as if Mercedes should have done it. No more worrying about a flat and using the ‘inflate a tire’ junk.

It is very heavy ( about 50# ) and I would need your zip to compute the shipping charges to you.

I’ll sell it for $200 and you pay shipping. That includes the five longer, correct Mercedes lug bolts. It was a bolt on solution for a spare for my SL55 AMG.

I put this ad on mbworld.org today also.
Link for pics is in classified ad.

Life is short... forgive quickly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably... and never regret anything that made you smile. Only 2 defining forces have ever offered to die for you....Jesus Christ and the American Soldier. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom. Trust in God, but lock the door. Live well, love much & laugh often. Be happy. Buy low, sell high and slow dance more
