Default Question about the GXP spare tire

Is the spare tire that comes with the Bonne GXP a 17" rim? I am looking for a spare that will fit on my Grand Prix GXP since all i got from the factory was a can of fix-a-flat in the trunk. Pics would be helpful also. Thanks!

And yes it is a 17 inch, and made to barely miss the large caliper. You can barely fit a credit card between the two.

Thanks for the pic! I've been looking for it on some online juckyards, and supposibly the 17" spare from a 2007 Cadillac DTS is interchangable? Anyone know if that is the same one you guys have? The tire on the caddy spare is a 125/70/17.

The tire size of the GXP spare is the same as the Caddy. But i dont know about rim fitment. Does the GP GXP has the larger front caliper like the Bonneville GXP? If so it probably wouldn't work.

Yeah, I think the GP GXP and Bonne GXP use the same calipers and same size rotors, only difference is GP has drilled rotors.

I might have to go hunting on a Cadillac board to make sure it'* the same rim.

I just used my temporary spare also - ran over some roadside debris, and I have to say that both the tire pressure warning system worked great and the Eagle RS-A held air with a big puncture in the sidewall for nearly 18 hours. Wow.

The mini-spare had only 18 pounds of air pressure therein when I mounted it, but after limping to the neighborhood Exxon, it held air for two days while I got another tire.

BTW, if you need a replacement Eagle RS-A - it'* all about Discount Tire. $176 plus M&B and tax. A GREAT deal, since the Goodyear store wanted $315 and everyone else was in the $240 range.

Recommendation - check your mini-spare to make sure it'* in the trunk and carries the right air pressure.

Recommendation II - after you get a low tire pressure warning, you clear it by selecting it on the display and then holding the reset button for fiveish seconds. The low pressure warning drove me crazy for three days until I opened up the manual and found salvation.
