The spare tire on my 2000 Insight has a slow leak. I need to pump it up about every week. I have tried to get a replacement tire from two local Honda dealers and a Firestone place, with no luck. The dealer that currently has the car for a battery replacement (more on that later) said they weren't able to order one from Honda and actually called a few junk yards but weren't able to find one. Their only suggestion was that they could get us a full size spare for several hundred dollars which probably wouldn't fit under the cargo area. Firestone tried to order one, but after about a month said they wouldn't be able to get it.
Surely we can't be the only Insight owners who need to replace their spare tire! Any ideas where to get one?
Look up HAP auto recyclers in California, I know they have a couple of totaled Insight's they're parting out. Let us know though, I think the ones they have were all rear ended so the spare may have been lost in energy absorbtion. Still worth a shot.
