an someone tell me the spare tire size for a 2013 Malibu Eco with 17" rims? If someone bought the $100 option with the spare, any info would help. Mine came without a spare, and I'd like to get one from another vehicle in a junkyard. The $500 for a spare, jack, handle, etc. is crazy. The new Malibu has a bolt pattern of 120mm, while the earlier Malibu's (like my previous 2009) had a 110mm bolt pattern. I can easily get a jack, I'd just like to get the spare tire.
I was told if you order the Eco, the spare tire and jack is a $100 dollar option. If you order it as an over the counter part, it's $500. In my limited research some BMW's came with a 17" inch spare with a 120mm bolt pattern. I may try and see if one of these will work, or see if a full size tire will work as a spare and fit in the wheelwell.
Hmm it shows on the Chevrolet website that the spare is standard on a 2LT.
They might have made a change after you bought yours just like they did with mine. After I bought ours they started including the body side molding as part of the Power and Convenience package.
Seems like they have made quite a few changes through the 2013 model year.
