I'm cleaning out my garage, and I still have a small donut style spare wheel with good tire out of my 164 in my garage. Not looking for a lot of money, just want it gone to someone who needs one. It's in Austin. Make an offer

164 spacesaver spares

Please be advised that these small Michelin spares have an alarming tendency to explode. It happened in the trunk of our car and we bought a parts car that had the trunk bulged up about 6 inches from another explosion. If you sell and ship the tire, I would deflate it before shipping. Michelin knows about the problem and paid us for the damage. We had to ship the exploded tire back to Michelin. The tire in our car was dated 1989, so they are quite old, at this point. I called the Tire Rack and found that they are no longer made, so we replaced it with a conventional full sized spare.

OK, I did not know that. I guess I'll just toss it then.... after letting the air out ;)
