Very surprised my GV80 Prestige has no spare tire or jack kit. Can’t find a light temporary wheel for a 22” tire to keep in car if needed for a road trip. Anyone else looking for or finding one?

I was just wondering if you find one, where will you store it since there isn’t a cut out for one? This issue forced me to buy the Advance trim.

I am looking at options also. I ordered the Prestige 3.5 but have not had an opportunity to examine the set up under the floor. I would hope the the plastic piece in the Prestige could come out and be replaced with something to hold a spare.

FYI, I found the spare tire kit for our prestige model. The spare tire kit comes in the 2.5 RWD model. So my genesis parts guy found that product number and for the whole kit with tire etc is around 650 with employee pricing which they should give you. I have my ordered and on the way.

Welcome to the forum @Jackson5. Thanks for finding that out. I've always preferred a spare tire rather than a tire repair kit that Genesis and other companies use.

Are you going to keep it on your vehicle? My salesman says the 22" does not fit in the well.

Hey! So the spare tire that comes in the GV80 RWD is not a 22 inch rim… it is a basic spare tire will black hub that is made for the GV80… it will fit perfectly where the spare tire is supposed to go under back floor flip up panels. They ordered me the spare tire and the kit with jack etc that fits in side the back of spare tire. Tell your sales man, to look for the part number for the spare tire in GV80 RWD… there is not one for the AWD. I have the GV80 AWD prestige. I actually already had to use my spare tire and it worked great.

So, what's the part number for the spare tire kit? Can you share so we can order one as well?

Good post! I was told that using the Genesis Compact Spare on the Prestige model might cause interference problems. When you had the flat was it front or rear tire? Thanks.

My flat was on the rear…I do not understand what they told you that… it is the same wheel base/ wheel cavity on all the models. Would not matter rather the flat was on back or front. Sounds like your sales person doesn’t know the GV80:)

On the prestige aren't the front brakes larger then the 3 other trims. I inquired about the possibility of fitting a Genesis Emergency Spare to the prestige. I was told the dealer does not have any such kit. They wanted a part number and indicated using such a kit was inappropriate on the Prestige due to its size because it could cause a number of problems and, if I did use such a spare it was entirely at my "peril". Genesis would not be responsible in any way. That pissed me off, to say the least. The dealer has the car that I want. Thanks to you, we know the spare fits and works well on the rear. You sound very certain that it will fit all wheels and I hope you are right. If I get the right answer to my concern, I will immediately purchase the prestige. I wish I had the answer as the dealer could sell the very rare beauty. Thanks...

I contacted 3 genesis dealers parts departments regarding an emergency spare for the base RWD GV80. All three responded with there is no compact spare tire/kit included in their parts catalog. So how did you get one?

Hi Vivian,
From what I have been told (and seen), in order to have a spare tire, you have to buy the base or advanced model. The Prestige does not have one. It has an inflator kit. The inflator kit is worthless if you get a sidewall flat. Usually, when a flat happens, you have to seek a safe area on the road side, therefore there is a high probability of the rim cutting into the tire side wall destroying the tire. At this point a spare is needed or, if there is a cell signal, a call to AAA.

Another consideration is your driving climate. Are you located in an area with frequent snow and ice conditions? If so, the Prestige 3.5 Liter V6 has the Electronic Limited Slip Differential that substantially increases traction in onerous conditions.

Although in a previous posting someone claims to have purchased a spare tire kit, three dealer parts department managers told me NO SPARE KIT exists. One said, It will take time to become available especially with the current parts shortage.

As far as where to store a compact spare, although unconfirmed, there is a cargo storage compartment on the rear floor area (in front of the rear hatch). Supposedly, the plastic tray storage tray is removable and under it, may be space for a tire.

Hi there. Thank you for your response. It is a bit confusing from the previous comments. I currently have an Audi Q7 Prestige Plus and have had terrible luck with a blow out in town (live in Dallas) and it ruined 3 rims as well. The city had a metal plate covering local road work that jutted out a couple of inches and at normal in town speed blew out the tire and ruined 3 rims. It had to be flat bedded to a local dealership. The problem I have is that I travel by car to Colorado and New Mexico several times a year. I only drove the Audi twice as I became fearful of such an incident occurring in the recesses of these states in an 11-16 hour drive and while driving the rocky roads of Colorado. So, long story short, I was looking to replace the Audi with a Genesis and get a spare tire model. Seems one can’t have it all…thanks again for your comprehensive response.

I too was looking for a donut spare for my Prestige, but after having a sideway failure on another vehicle and having to use the donut spare 300 miles from home, decided not to pursue one for my GV80. However, I have the complete parts list for one, which is attached.
