You can usually find a handful of them at the junkyard. It doesnt have to be spark specific but yu have to male surr its the right bolt pattern and offset to clear the calipers.

I don't think the wheel sensor is mandatory on a spare tire. Just find a spare tire that is the right size and the right bolt pattern.

I find spare tires to be useless. When last has any of you actually had to use a spare?

Instead of getting a spare tire, your better off getting a tire patch kit and mini air compressor.

also sign up for some sort of road side assistance.

Aww darn it. Yeah the tpms light --> (!) will go on as it includes the spare tire pressure along with its system. Just buy yourself a suitable rim with the right bolt pattern and size then buy the sensor and have it installed for around 30$. The sensor depending on which on will run you about 40-60$

Yes I like to know more about this spare tire stuff also being I know nothing about these new vehicles I'm old school and 62 years old and wife is on oxygen don't need to be stuck in the middle of no where with out a spare tire I have heard sometimes that fix a flat stuff doesn't work I see eBay has Spark wheels for around $200.00 haven't check it out all the way yet only have a little of 400 miles on our new Spark. So ya have to have the censor as well and have installed if I read that right. Will the spare tire censor mess with tpms light while just sitting in the back?
