If you switched from any run-flat tires to the standard tires, here is the Compact Emergency spare for your R60 Countryman and R61 Paceman!   This 'space saver tire' set-up uses the factory BMW spare wheel with a brand new tire for guaranteed fitment.

Fits the following:

2011-2016 R60 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Countryman (including ALL4)
2013-2016 R61 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Paceman (including ALL4)

NOTE:  Unfortunately, this spare setup will not clear the JCW brakes, front or rear...

Beware of 'similar' space-saver tires from other brands since the hub diameter is most likely the wrong size. If you are shopping at some junk yards for other brands, consider the 'age' of the tire - do you really want a 5+ years old tire as your primary backup??

Yes, you can find the wheel from a dealer, tire from a tire shop and get it mounted and balanced - but why bother, we did all the work for you! Mounted, balanced, and ready-to-use.

Sorry, this Compact Spare will not fit in the compartment under the rear floor.

For a Kit that includes a custom carrying / storage bag with this spare tire, see G2NMW7610-P.

Remember, this is a 'temporary' spare tire to get you directly home or directly to the nearest tire repair center. Get your flat fixed and back on your car AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Recommended 'cold' inflation pressure: 60 psi

Lug Bolts torque for 2011+ COUNTRYMAN: 103.3 ft lbs

Tighten the lug bolts in a criss-cross pattern.

Have the wheel bolts checked as soon as possible using a calibrated torque wrench to ensure that the lug bolts are firmly seated, otherwise a serious accident could result if a wheel comes loose.

Wheel Size: 4.0J x 17 ET 18
Tire Size: 135/80
Sidewall Height: 4.25"
Section Width: 5.31"
Overall Diameter: 25.50"
Circumference: 80.12"
Revs per mile: 790.78
Weight: Approx. 29 lbs.

Actual dimensions may vary slightly depending on the brand of tire. Compared to the stock 205/55/17 tire, this spare is only 0.38" shorter in diameter and 1.18" less in cirumference - about as close as you can get to the original size.

Fits nicely in the trunk laying down:


  • Driving with the space-saver tire
  • This spare will trigger a 'flat tire' warning light since it does not have the TPMS sensor.
  • Drive cautiously. Do not exceed a speed of 50mph/80kph.
  • You must expect changes in vehicle handling such as lower track stability during braking, longer braking distances and changes in self-steering properties when close to the handling limit. These effects are more pronounced when driving with winter tires.
  • Only one space-saver tire may be mounted at one time. Reinstall a wheel and tire of the original size as soon as possible.
  • Check the tire inflation pressure at the earliest opportunity and correct it if necessary. Replace the defective tire as soon as possible and have the new wheel/tire assembly balanced.

Allow 2 weeks for delivery.

The 205/55/17 tires on 7Jx17 wheels are the standard offering from MINI. Factory options include 225/45/18 tires on 7.5Jx18 wheels and the JCW 225/40/19 on 7.5Jx19 wheels. This Compact Spare is compatible with any of these optional tire set-ups.

ALL4 Information

For a better understanding of your ALL4 all-wheel-drive system, here is a brief description:

The All4 starts at 50/50 front to rear power split, and is able to re-allocate up to 100% of power back to the front wheels.

As an All4 equipped MINI reaches highway speeds, the multi-plate wet clutch that sends power to the rear wheels starts to disengage progressively, sending less and less power to the rear wheels as you go faster. At approximately 80 mph, the rear wheels are disengaged entirely for the sake of efficiency.

The rear drive mechanisms are engineered to be able to send nearly 300 foot pounds of torque to the rear wheels. Put another way, the clutch mechanism, sending unit, rear differential and axles are engineered strong enough to work with an engine output of up to 600 foot pounds! Knowing that the system is that strong and that over-engineered speaks well to what we might be able to expect from the system’s longevity.

Is there any way to pay to have the tire expedited for faster shipping?
Yes, we have them in stock. The website can give you shipping costs for several options including expedited shipping.
