Description

Okay into my second week of owning a 2017 Chevy Volt needed a spare tire for my road trips. This is a quick DIY video on how I mounted my temporary tire on to my 2017 Chevy Volt. If you are uncomfortable with DIY or with cars, bring it to a professional tire shop or back to the Chevy Dealer for the official spare tire kit which can be ordered. This is how I do it for entertainment, do so at your own risk or bring it to an auto repair shop. Thanks for watching. Story: To prep for more road trips! Here is my journey of getting a spare tire for my Chevy Volt. I went to the auto wrecking yard and got myself a spare tire from a Chevy Cruze 2012, and bought a new jack and tool kit from Amazon. I also went to get a tire mount kit ( Dorman Help!). I had to modify it to make it work with the Chevy Volt. Because Dorman thread was too big, i searched the internet and the GM Volt Forums and found an awesome write-up by MilliVolt on a mount using an M8 1.25 bolt adapter which was great! thank you Millivolt for the write-up it was awesome! Because i was not able to find Aveo or Chevy Cruze anchor bolt I bought the Dorman Help! 41068 Tire Mount kit and swapped the m10 bolt with a M8 threaded bolt and nut. It was still an excellent deal as if came with the hardware for the wingnut and tire washer.
