It would seem there is light at the end of the tunnel!
Ok, it's $195.71 now... I'm going to order one.

It comes with the 17" Steel Wheel. These are currently on Backorder with 50 In-Transit to Parts Depots. Btw the Price is a bargain. Get em before FORD raises the PRICE. Now I am unsure weather the Tire itself is included. FORD was supposed to send a FAX with All the Facts today but it is a no show as of This evening.

What annoys me is that I would have gladly paid $200 more for my car if this kit had come with it.

Anyone have a picture of the kit yet? I have a spare, but I need all of rest of the stuff. I was wondering if this kit had a nice container that sits in the wheel well, or some other container that keeps it from just rolling around in the trunk.

My dealer says the kits come with the rim (17") and not the tire. I talked to a parts man at another dealer and he says that for $720 you also get the tire.

Hang Tight I sent a Info Request to FORD PArts assistance and supposedly more info is to follow via a Bulletin I was supposed to get today.

Long time lurker, first time poster. I ordered the kit on 10/01/11 from fordparts.com. I received it yesterday, 10/10/11 and can confirm that the kit includes the wheel, tire, jack, the lug wrench, and tire changing instructions. I did not take pictures. I took a chance for $195.71 + tax + shipping and was not dissapointed. I have a picture of the label from the box but I don't know how to attach it to my post.

My kit arrived yesterday as well, I 'installed' it today myself (comes with instructions for putting it all in as well as instructions for changing the tire, the latter of which you can see the corner of to the right of the tire in the below photo).

The only issue I noted is, you're supposed to slide the fuel 'funnel' onto a tab in the wrench bag's attachment to the bolt (you can see the white funnel properly stored in 05stangkc's photo above), but that leaves it right on top of the ridge in the new wheel. I didn't want to put it there for fear of the thing being crushed if I put something heavy in my trunk. I keep a box with other car stuff in my trunk, so I found a place to tuck it there, instead, along with the compressor from the mobility kit.

Pic of installed tire/wrench (the jack is secured underneath the wheel):

It's real, and it's a steal for $200, especially given that the tire, while it isn't the same size as the 'real' tires, isn't actually a doughnut. It's got a flat tread like a real tire, it's just small.

Just remember, as was said earlier in this thread, if you get a rear flat, take a good tire from the front to the rear and put the spare on the front. The difference in diameter from a stock tire to the spare can damage your differential.

I am glad sombody finally got one of these and yes they are a Bargain. FORD Parts Assistance Center Sent me on a wild goose chase and gave conflicting answers. ONE Analyst SAID NO TIRE, ANOTHER DOES COME WITH TIRE. Btw, The Parts Catalog will be updated shortly and in the Pic it will show the tire and Not Just a bare Rim. Notice how the Parts Catalog Says TIRE & WHEEL but the Pic shows no tire. Does not Show instructions either. The Text & the Pic are supposed to match. It's what you see is what you get setup.Thats where confusion comes into play. At least my checking will get the Parts Catalog Fixed. Not the first time I got Mustang Parts info cleared up! LOL~

Everybody I contacted had a different answer to my questions and it's always been like this. That needs to change. I guess thats why I can be helpful as I always keep digging.

I had found a Dealer who had one in stock yesterday but when I called they could not find the Kit in the store so he could not look at it and see if it indeed had the tire.

Anyhow on a side note. The Bare Tire alone would cost you close to what the kit costs so getting a kit is a no brainer. Be advised for the Dealer to get a BARE tire they have to fax a FORM to Ford Tire Program Headquarters and then It's shipped from CANADA and you have to pay Brokerage Fee's etc to get it here. Also The dealer has to pay maxxis with a Credit Card. Not a friendly process! What'S New! Good thing it comes with the kit.

I did ask about an 18" Kit for The Mustang and was basically the question was ignored. Nothing new there either. So for now it would be a Real expensive proposition to get that 18" Aluminum Set up. We shall See.




Enjoy,

KC

Can you Give me the Dimensions of The Box The Kit came in and the Weight. They should Show on the Shipping Label. I want to figure the most cost effective way to get one of these for the members.

I'm sorry, but I ordered my kit through a local dealer, and when it arrived, I installed it in their parking lot and left them the box to dispose of. Can anyone else who's gotten the kit come up with the size and weight of the package?

Finally convinced my ford dealer to do a little research and they figured out that the tire does come in the kit, these guys kept looking at the schematic and never were reading the discreption info to see what actually came in the kit. I ordered mine kit though the FordParts.com web site today. Without the help of NightSteel and 05stangkc I would still be looking.

Does anyone know what brand of spare tire is supplied with the 2011 Mustang GT or 2003-2004 Mercury Marauder? Maxxis does not seem to list either the T195/50-18 or the T155/80-18.

Ford Parts cataloging has ALWAYS been subject to interpretation. I guess that makes me a Parts Interpreter. It's an acquired skill that I chose to learn. Sometimes you have to check & recheck different sources to get the right answer. When it's really bad you got to get a visual on the part by oredering or calling another dealer. It's just the way it goes!

I can't give you the dimensions because I threw the box away but as you can see the box is just big enough to wedge the 185/60 R17 tire/wheel in. You'll have to guess at the height. The shipping label say 48 lbs. I don't see dimensions on the label but maybe its coded. The tire and wheel weight 37 according to my bathroom scales. The jack weighs 3 lbs, 1 less than the inflation kit. So a net increase around 36 lbs.
