That’s Facebook s550 group for you. I see all kinds of sleezy sells post and scams$25 for your spare? He was certainly looking to take advantage of you! After market set ups are a couple hundred dollars, Ford is more I think. I just ordered a spare jack with the lug wrench for my Edge from a junkyard and it was $60 by itself.
By the way, if anyone is interested, the Edge jack is identical to the one in the mustang. The only difference is that the lug wrench comes in a pouch rather than attaching to the jack. It was also less expensive than ones out of a mustang by $20-$30.
Trust me you aren't vitcim #1, Within the first 3 months of ownership I had to replace not 1, not 2 but 3 tires for that same exact reason. I still haven't gotten the spare tire but it is on my todo list.Got a screw in my tire, barely made it to the tire shop. Could just imagine being out of cell range, tire damaged beyond the goop stuff, and being labeled as “Victim #1“ when they find me months later. Hate the idea of having to buy a spare tire.
Have you ever seen what passes for roads in most of India? No American buyer would accept this.This is the difficult part about Ford. Yes they do make spares that work with those Brembos. They just won't sell them to you. Internationally, they put on those Performance Pack wheels more often than they do here.
I was shocked when I saw they get a full-size spare.
Why in the hell won't they sell this in the states?

PLEASE, please tell me you did not pay sticker price for your Mustang. The price listed should not be the price you're paying for Ford vehicles and/or parts.... Regardless $832 would also make it a no go here. Owners bitch about the $500 for the AA spare.
So, it's dark, my PP1 has a front flat on the side of the highway, it's raining, and you want me to:The solution for the PP1 guys is simple. Kinda. 1” spacer and the spare tire kit. If you get a rear flat you are fine. If you get a front flat you have to move a rear to the front and then install the spacer and put the spare on the back.
This is effectively the full AA kit (https://www.automotiveauthorityllc....ang-gt-with-brembo-brakes?variant=35757212297). Fits under the floor, the trunk stays flat, it clears the Bembros, and is the same diameter as the rear wheel if you're worried about the LSD.Why in the hell won't they sell this in the states?
