Still no spare tire kit

Its been 4 months since I purchased my Compass and the spare tire kit is still not available.

Is there a site where I can just order a cheap rim & tire and make my own spare tire kit?

I would check eBay. Also check with auto salvage yards. Just a note Jeep Renegade wheels and jack are the same.

Not certain jeep compass spare and jack are same as renegade

I am not 100% certain all the components of the Renegade and new Compass are identical. I have a 2018 Compass, my daughter has a 2016 Renegade. I am certain that when I tried to use something on the other vehicle, it didn't fit properly. Unfortunately, I cannot recall if it was the jack or tire, and from which car it was. (As she now lives several hundred miles away, cannot check on this.) Note that my daughter's Renegade Spare Tire Kit came with a temporary spare - my Compass' kit was a full size spare tire on a steel wheel.

I obtained a spare tire from a Renegade that the local salvage yard sourced from another yard and it did not fit. The bolt pattern matched, but the overall diameter of the bolts was off. Was able to return the tire.

That is all very interesting. My neighbors 2016 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk and my Compass Trailhawk have identical Tires wheels and Jack.
Maybe because they are Trailhawks. Bolt size and Bolt patterns are identical also. And When I looked up lug bolts and Wheels on any aftermarket web site they list identical sizes for the Compass and Renegade. Maybe some people are getting confused with the old style compass which would be different.

Mine was on backorder for about 5-6 months but worth the wait, one thing that will bite you in the end is the shipping. When I was looking the shipping costs about $50 so youll be into a spare for about $300 usually. Thankfully the place I purchased mine from was free shipping on anything over $50. If I remember right I was into the full size spare kit for $245 to my door

The ebay item is sold already.

I placed an order with the above link, it did not indicate that it was not in stock so I hope it doesn't show that now that I placed the order. I do have to pay $50 for shipping, but it had a $45 discount so it will balance out for the most part. The paypal receipt shows it to be Mopar Parts, so I am guessing it will be on backorder.

I should know shortly what the story is.

Did not get an email confirmation yet, so I sent them a message about it. I did use Paypal so I copied the text from the receipt in the contact form.

I did get an email back from Mopar Parts. Something happened that my payment went on the wrong account and they fixed it. He sent me an order confirmation and told me its on backorder until 8/20. Well at least now I have an idea when I will get it. Its less then 3 weeks from now so that won't be too bad.

I was glad to see they responded to my email in a timely manor.

Fortunately my Compass had the spare option when I bought it however I did have to recently create a kit for one of my other cars. The Discount/Americas Tire site had the low cost tire and rim I needed ($140) and I was able to source a jack setup from the local auto parts store. Helps to know the stock size, lug pattern and offset to ensure picking the right setup.

I can measure my trucks factory spare information for anyone that needs it...however it is a FWD sport model with the sport appearance group which has the 215/65 x 16 inch tires.
