    I have 4 17" OEM MOE Continental's just sitting in the garage with about 7,000 miles on them. Would consider selling 2 for $150, you pay the freight. See ad and pictures in the Parts For Sale section.

    A strap to hold the cover and the spare.

    Where did you buy the spare tire? Did come with the tire? Tool kit?

    Nice set-up! Hadn't thought about the strap. I just happened to end-up with a full size rim with a tire that is close to the OEM size that I use when I am going long distances. That, and a Slime kit with compressor and goop when I stay local. Oh, and AAA card too,

    Here's the thread where I got the info from RSM.

    Has anybody found a bonafied Spare tire solution?

    It will cost you $350 to replace each run flat tires includes installation, TPMS, tax. By the way you have to buy the stem through MB dealer, it is smaller than the standard stem, Discount tires, tire works don't have it, just found that out.

    Yeah, it works pretty good! The spare and tools doesn't make a noise at all.

    And there's always this, which is what I put in my non-runflat Michelins. No incidents to report yet.

    I had a similar experience with a run flat last Oct. I picked up a screw at 1800 miles. the dealer said run flats could not be patched and I had to buy anew one that cost me $240. The new run flat does come with a warranty however. I complained to MB but to no avail. They thanked me for alerting them to a potential problem with run flats which in my opinion are terrible.
