Fortify your Mustang V6, I4 and GT coupe or convertible with this kit that's sized just right for stay-put storage in the covered trunk well.

18 x 5.0 aluminum wheel includes tire and valve stem.
Scissor jack.
Wrench attached to jack during storage.
Retainer bracket with bolt and washer.
Easy to install; no drilling required.

That is definitely what you do NOT want to attempt to use on the Bullitt. First of all, it will make contact with the brakes in front and secondly, even if it did, the diameter of the wheel is 18" plus the tire would be introducing the size mismatch I talked about above, which would cause the heat build-up.


Take a look at the kit that is listed here - https://www.automotiveauthorityllc.c...-brembo-brakes


The wheel diameter is 19", it fits flush under the trunk floor board, the tire and wheel together are the correct rolling diameter. The 18" Ford spare option you listed will not work.

I just purchased this kit for my Bullitt. Although it is a little pricey, it has everything you need, works perfectly for the car, and installs in literally minutes, fits flush as well. I definitely recommend!

Please let us know the results. Does it or does it NOT clear the Brembo brakes?

Curious what this spare wheel/tire measures? I think the 275/40/19 rears are 27.7 tall

I know that when a bunch of us drove to the All Mustang American Muscle show (2 years in a row), we made sure to bring tire repair kits, jacks, tools, and a speare tire of a couple of sizes.

I have a 2019 Bullitt and need to find a solution to the spare tire to have peace of mind while driving from Plano TX to Lubbock to visit my daughter attending college in Lubbock.

The Proper Spare for 2019 Bullitt

https://modernspare.com/search-page/...ang& cfy=2019
I've talked to these people about what they show on their website and what is needed for my 2019 Bullitt. And, they assure me that even though it's an eighteen inch rim, the tire size brings it to the proper circumference. Also, they provide a spacer to clear the front Brembo 6-piston brake caliper. These tire are inflated to about 65 psi or more (I can't recall) and can be driven 80 mph. I bought one for my 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, so, that's my previous experience.

So, Tim what was the bottom line on this kit recommended by the dealer? Did it work on the front?

I haven't had a flat for years and the last one was in my driveway at home overnight so an easy fix.
However with the mustangs and no spare I dread the thought of having to use that kit in the boot especially on a dark wet night
Don't even want to think about it , it may tempt fate

The other problem though is loosening the wheel nuts when they are tightened by an air gun, some are just impossible to move anyway before you even worry about the spare/no spare issue

Seems like the cheapest and best way to tackle the spare issue is to buy just the wheel/tire from AA, and the jack and tools from Ford. Somebody posted the part numbers somewhere else, so will look for those, since I have the car in the garage now.

By the way, what's the deal with the supplied compressor box? It seems to have the 'goop' built-in, right? But what happens if you use it: Do you have to throw away the damn thing? That's be stupid. It should be a way to just replace the goop, which is always separate on all other vehicles I've owned with one. Am I missing something? Looked for a way to disassemble the thing, and looks like you'd have to destroy it by pulling the 2 pieces apart. Didn't see any screws or tabs to service the goop. Thx.

Hey guys, forgot to say I finally got my manual and and documentation (bought out of town), and it has a section covering the compressor box. And yes, you can replace the 'goop' cartridge, as expected. Tried repeatedly downloading the .pdf manual from the Ford owners site, but couldn't do it, for some reason. Sorry for not reading the actual owner's manual before posting above. Tried to edit it, but don't have that option anymore. Stay safe .
