Even Sears was sued for selling 8 yr old "new" tires. Pretty common on Ebay. They prey on peoples ignorance of tire safety. Industry standard is no good after 6 years. I just emailed Continental this week about the spare tire I just bought. (almost 10 yrs old but new) They explain 10 years is max?? Only manufacture I have ever seen with that number. But they have lawyer speak of condition and environment also to get 10 years.

Good luck
Its her car, def has curbed most of the wheels! Think I found a good tire listed this morn at 8/32 and appears date code isnt bad. so that should solve that prblm and ill see if my currents still have the road hazard warty.

Are the exact part numbers listed for the 2 types (mini from AMG) of spare tires that will fit the W222 as well as the Jack Kit? Lots of used on eBay with unknown dates posted. I would not mind purchasing new.
Do you have to swap tires if you have the staggered setup?

Remember that if you buy used, you need to get the special lug nuts that go with the mini spare tire.

I think that the standard nuts will fit the AMG S63 spare because this spare is not stamped steel and is much thicker. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. The AMG spare looks nice but seriously.. for temporary use, I care not about cosmesis.

Have you guys considered the compact spare that must be inflated that comes in the e63/cls63. Both of mine have it. Considering getting one with the air pump.

That tire is not the proper size for an S class.

Does this fit in the E63 trunk correctly (under the floor)?

Do the AMGs come with a spare?

This is true but would be fine IMO on a RWD car.

Good idea, I'll go get a can to keep in the trunk.
