Spare tire replacement?

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?

AFAI know most any Honda that also has 14" rims with a 4 bolt pattern will interchange.

A junkyard?

HTH! :)

Not as much as any shop that you might find that would do the job for you.
The rim ain't painted yellow for nothing.

Read: It's not designed for a "regular" sized tire and catastrophic failure would be inevitable :!: :shock:

HTH! :)
