Trunk kit for spare wheel.

Post by Lilywhite » Sun Nov 24, 2019 8:34 pm

Hi I have a spare wheel it’s a space saver 1 have it over a year just siting in the trunk.
It’s staring to annoy me when using the trunk has any 1 managed to make some sort off DIY system underneath the the floor to store the wheel ?
Toyota Ireland want mad money for the kit they sell.
Or has anyone found somewhere on line that sells them.
Thanks for any feed back.

Bought the Toyota spare, true, around 500€ is quite expensive but after searching a lot, could only find just the spare Tyre with the bag for around 150€ but wouldn't be perfect as it is with the original,
You could try making the thing yourself,
Remove everything from bottom of trunk
Cover the whole bottom and sides of trunk with plastic plastic
Fill with expansive foam polyurethane I think, (don't know if it's the correct name) and put Tyre in ( also wrapped in plastic so it doesn't stick to the think), can also put jack and any tools, just make sure all wrapped,
After foam expands, remove the Tyre and other items and cut foam to desired height.
The Tyre and other insertion is to have the space molding perfectly done for each.
It's just an idea, never seen anyone doing it for spare Tyre but I've seen friends doing it on other cars for speakers and subwoofers,
Just be aware it sticks everywhere when fresh so plastic isolation is mandatory so that you can remove the whole thing after drying,
Cutting is really easy though.

I bought the kit which i was told they have to order individually. If you take the wheel out as you have one i think it works out at £170ish. Kept the old boot area floor cut it to fit as an over mat.

Thanks for the replies I’m booked in for a service in 2 weeks while I’m in.
I’ll inquire about the above parts and see what they say.
If not I’ll try a DIY job 😱.
Thanks guys.
