Spare tire for 2004 360

I am looking for a used wheel or tire and wheel that will fit mt 04 360 Modena for a spare. It can have scratches or needs painting as long as it is not bent. Does anybody know of another rim that will fit and not Ferrari OEM. Thanks, "Brother"

Spare Tire Not a Great Idea, but Here You Go

Brother- Do a search for a space saver tire with 5x108 mm bolt pattern and a diameter of approximately 26" or a bit more. Be advised there is a difference in diameter of ~1" between front and rear tires (25.62" vs 26.66") on the 360, so any use of a spare should be very limited since the car will pull in the front with a spare there and probably give you ABS lights and other faults because of the mismatch in diameters with the spare in the rear.

A better idea is to carry a 12V compressor and just continue to fill the tire until you can get it where it can be repaired or replaced.

Cars with 108 mm bolt patterns can be found on this list. Be advised most cars are set up for studs and wheel nuts and not wheel bolts, so not sure how well they will work. The original, optional spare was a 125/80 17 with at diameter of 24.87" and limited to 50 mph. That is probably the largest tire that would fit because it is a really bad match for the front or rear tire.

Incidentally, you will need a jack and lug nut kit, too.

I am looking for the same exact thing! I was wondering if I can pick up a used front tire and rim? Will it fit in the back without hitting the caliper, etc.?

Feerless shifter, I sent another PM. I don't know if it went through, or if I sent multiple copies. If I sent multiple PM's, sorry about that, you can just read the last one. Thanks

Caliper clearance will not be a problem since the F&R of 360s and F430s have the same size rotors at 330 mm and similarly sized calipers. It may not fit in the luggage compartment, but you can check yourself to make sure before buying one.

Thanks Taz, that's the clarification I was looking for. Now I have to hunt for a front rim and tire!

Would recommend taking off one of your front tires and seeing if it will fit first. Otherwise you have a $700 paperweight.

There's at least four listed on eBay right now.
They typically have several on any given day.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

I have a question. Say you have a flat rear tire. You put on the spare tire which will only fit just fit in the trunk along with the jack and tools. Will that flat rear tire and wheel you just took off fit back in the trunk?

i doubt it.
I'd say you would have a wheel on your passenger seat (or passenger!) until you get to where you are going.

Before I got my car, we had a BMW that did not have a spare. The BMW came with a 12V air compressor and a can goo slime you spray into the tire to seal the leak.

The 12V air compressor is good idea, but the spray can of goop is not, IMO. The Ferrari solution with only the large can of compressed air and spray in goop is even a worse idea.

Ever since many vehicles have ceased providing spare tires, I have taken to putting a 12V air compressor in all my cars and I carry a tire repair kit. Here is what I carry with me ...
Kt-220 - BlackJack Tire Repair

The repair kit can be used for any puncture caused by typical road debris such as nails and screws. If the puncture is not in the sidewall, your repair is also permanent as well.

Although not on the Ferrari, I have had two occasions over the last six years to use this method. In both cases it was a nail or screw in the tread. It takes a few minutes to make the repair, without removing the wheel. Pump the tire back up with the air compressor and off I go. Both repairs were permanent and one of our cars still has that tire on the vehicle several thousand miles later.

Of course there are conditions where using a plug to repair a tire should not be considered permanent until you have the tire carcass examined. But in a majority of cases it is fine.
