How To Add FACTORY Spare Tire Kit ~ 2019 Golf R

Why did the Golf R not come with a spare tire? Well, it doesn’t really matter because there is no spare tire, or even a jack in the 2019 Golf R. Today we will be adding a proper spare tire kit to my 2019 Golf R. This spare tire kit is using all OEM parts, and fits perfectly in the trunk. Thank you do for supplying the parts for this video.

  1. I think another reason that manufacturers stopped adding spare tyres is because people are unable or unwilling to change their tyre themselves. People are lazy and rather call the tow truck instead.

    I added one to my Audi A3, those spare kits are useless.

  2. So first you got screwed over the cheaper alternative by having a foam and a pump. Then this kit is not going to repair your tire 100% of the times /hope you never need it at all/. After that if you ever use it and it repairs the tire, then you have to replace the tire, so you are one tire down. And also that Foam has an expiration date, so it has to be replaced after a while too. Ooou and one more thing is in the Mobility program. If your vehicles comed from the factory with the mobility kit /foam and pump/ when you have a flat and if that flat is not fixed with the tyre repair kit they will recover your vehicle to the nearest VW service center. But then you are not able to use a spare car or a hotel provided by the Mobility program otherwise. The last is not just the weight, it is the trunk space that they advertise over the competitors. Actually for all the above all the companies are doing it in their line up to some extent but it is more market dependable. Like in the previous Diesel E-Class Mercedes they have the AdBlue /DEF/ tank in the spare wheel space and you even do not have the luxury of adding one, you are stuck with a tire repair kit.

  3. The real reason it didn’t come with one is …. so you you could make this video about installing one! Vw looking for theirs favorite bearded mechanic 🙂

  4. It did not come with one because the Humble Mechanic said it did not need one as long as you watch his videos and subscribe LOL

  5. My Golf R here in Ireland came with a spare wheel, as did any others I've seen. Maybe certain US states don't allow space saver wheels so it's deleted from all US cars?

  6. how a car can come without a spare in this day and age is beyond me , just a way of penny pinching as for adding 45 lbs, who on earth cares , drive with half a tank of fuel if your that bothered.

  7. Hate these metall trim clips……thay always destroy the Plastictrim…..
    First i saw it, was back in the Golf 4 / Audi TT 8n-times.

    I am not a big fan of plasticclips, but they work very well on the MK3.

  8. All UK models come with the space saver spare as standard….so all the concerns about 4WD etc are meaningless.

  9. I honestly can’t believe I just watched an entire video of someone installing a spare tire in a car that I don’t even own! 😀I do appreciate the general OEM+ levels of modifications. Matches my tastes almost perfectly. 👍🏻👍🏻 I’m thrilled my Focus ST came with a full size spare. Had the car 3+ years and used it 4 times. Had my previous car 10 years almost to the day and the spare never saw the light of day (other than tire pressure checks, of course 😎). Its predecessor, a GTI VR6, went 9 years and only had one flat that I can recall. Not sure why the ST seems to be cursed.
