Re: Parting out 2006 aero.

I’m under the impression that cars that came originally with 17  wheels have a 17  donut.

Re: Parting out 2006 aero.

I have no idea but I would think the outer diameter of the tires would be the same regardless of the rim size.... if you want I can get you a diameter of the spare

Re: Parting out 2006 aero.

I'm fairly certain that all 9-2x came with the same size 16" donut spare. The brakes and suspension on all cars is similar, and as such, the spare tire would be the smallest diameter to fit the suspension and brakes behind it.

As info, the outer diameter of the spare tire is significantly smaller than the stock 205/55/16 or 215/45/17 tires that the 9-2x was equipped with. It is intended solely to get you to a service station to get the normal tire replaced.


Check the owner's manual - I think it might list the tire sizes.

Re: Parting out 2006 aero.

Running 235/45/17 tires, the factory spare is way too small. I had a flat tire and had to drive on the donut 18 miles one night. Obviously I kept the speed between 40 and 45mph.  My car wasn’t happy and nor was I.
