GLS compact spare

Hi All,

We forgot to check the spare well at the dealer.

Can someone please confirm if the GLS 450 always carries a compact spare tire (Temporary Use Spare) in the back?

Anyone had to use one yet?

I can confirm it carries a compact spare. I havent had the opportunity to use it yet. It must look quite odd, such a small spare with the 3 other wheels being 21in.

GLS550 here with a spare. Does look funny compared to the actual wheels.

I used mine for about 25 miles or so. It's cool just gotta watch speed (keep it 50 or under I think) and be extra careful with expansion joints, pot holes etc.

looked into replacing it after I used it but tread looks fine. Can prob get 75-100 miles out of it, I'm guessing
