    Just ordered my spare tire kit from these guys. I'll let everybody know how this is once I get it and try it.

    Is be interested to find out what you think of it, too. I was on their site a while ago and I think they were going for something that would fit on the rear only, but I'm not positive about that. It would be great if they come up with something that can go on the front as well.

    This is true. The donut is for the rear only, so if your front tire goes, you need to do a 2 tire swap. Donut on rear, rear on front kinda thing. I can live with that as this is only for extended trips, etc. To do the front, it would require special spacers which when I asked, are possibly in the works in the future.

    I use a 08+ Dodge Charger spare with a T145/80R-18 size tire.It measures 26.5" like the T155/80R that Performance Spare uses.

    I think Adapt-it makes an adapter of some kind. I looked them up and it looked pretty substantial. The whole setup wouldn't be something you'd want to drive 1,000 miles on at 100 mph, but it might get you off the side of the road and allow you to get your tire fixed or replaced later.

    Received the kit. Next, I will mount it on the rear and post more pics. It is pretty big. Put the trashcan next to it for reference. Fits nicely in the trunk. The kit came with a scissors jack and 2 double sided sockets, and collapsible jack handle, plus a tie down bolt that I cannot use. I just threw my 1/2 torque wrench in there too......

    Different subject, but same vector solo7777, do you recall the torque value recommended for wheel lugs on a full size/stock wheel assembly when mounted to the hellcat? Appreciate that knowledge or direction on where to find the value...

    I believe the correct torque is 111 FT-LBS.
