Anybody blanch at that tire repair kit with Souls and just go get a spare? I'm thinking about it, which brings me to a question: How far back in model year can I get a tire that'll fit a '13? I'm thinking of going to the junk yard and seeing if they have a tire that'll be my spare. Also, does anybody know the cost of a jack?

Thanks.

Kia sells a spare tire kit with everything you need including a jack, for just about $200.00.

the compact spare sizes are listed in the back of your owners manual.

We don't know from your DRIVES profile which model you have + or !

Most models of car come with a variety of wheel sizes, and USUALLY the basic steel wheel will fit any model. e.g. My Mazda 2 had 15" alloys and no spare, so I bought a 14" steel wheel from the standard model and fitted the appropriate tyre with a higher profile and the overall size was just right. The alternative is to buy another wheel to match the other four, but this can be expensive, depending on the style of wheel. Manufacturers tend to inflate the price of alloy wheels so that "kerb rash" is a major expense.

If checking a wheel for size, check that it fits the front as well as back (larger disc rotors).
