    Its probably obvious to most, but I'll say it anyway. The SRT does not come with a spare tire. You'll get a compressor and a can of "goo". When I mentioned the "goo" to the Firestone dealer around the corner, she said the goo will most likely wreck the tire. Since I'm old school, I bought a plug kit just in case and keep it in the glove compartment. Any comments or thoughts?

    Don't use the goo! It will wreck the tire sensor..and maybe more.

    I have a spare tire for my SRT. It is from a Magnum. I had to buy a spacer to use over the Brembos.

    I have 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT and it also has the goo, and air compressor. I went on Ebay and bought the spare tire and the adapter kit. I will do the same for the Hellcat when Dodge finally assigns me VIN.

    Thanks all. That is very useful information. One of those things I probably would not have thought about until I got a flat tire and would have been pissed to find goo and a pump! I did notice something like that on the order sheet and was stuck on Supercharger, the rest was a blur...;)

    Buy the spare tire. I used the goo once, not worth the hassle, but I was stuck. Besides, with this car, we are all going to need lots of extra tires!!

    I could pull the SRT rims off my Charger and put the stock rims back on and use the others as problem solvers! Just in case. I really wanna get an extra set of black rims though. I'll put that on my Christmas list. ;)

    If you bought a spare is there a place in the trunk for it?
