What do you mean by that? The spare cavity is there and the same carpeted structure regardless of whether you purchase spare at order or afterwards. The only difference might be that the securing rod for the spare might not be in the cavity if not purchased at order, but the spare is heavy enough and doesn't shift or vibrate that you don't particularly need the securing rod.

Oh that you so much. This was the exact question I asked my SA and to send me some pictures of a non spare wheel based X5 in inventory. Already seeing it now.
So Bimmerzone does sell and there are links on this forum. But good lord they run at $589 for the same donut and $190 for the Jack kit.

Yikes. Looks like I will just be looking at a tire patch kit and a small compressor.
Thanks though.

Yap, because of the pricing, the standard standing advice around here is: ALWAYS BUY THE SPARE TIRE AT ORDER. Even if you don't want it — someone else will always be happy to take it off your hands.

Just be happy that you can even get it at all. BMW Canada still believes that a spare is impossible on a G05 X5. Unbelievable idiots.

good to know that it doesnt shift and vibrate. i beleive ours is tied down of some sort. as long as you can confirm theres no vibration, that's great. we all know any noise can be extremely annoying

I think the reason some dont order the spare and selling it after is becasue without the spear, its not that great looking (without the carpeting). If i was to sell our spear, it would bother me

I think you are still confused. There is carpeting in the spare cavity regardless of whether you order a spare at order time or not. If you've seen otherwise, please post a pic.

For examples, here are some of the earliest posted forum pics of the factory-ordered spare compartment:
https://www.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...php?p=23964115
https://www.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...php?p=24393320
https://www.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...php?p=24395858
https://www.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...php?p=24977065

This one was not factory ordered (a Canadian retrofit), but interesting because of the luggage package and brace that doesn't appear to be present on non-luggage package versions:

The Front: 275/45 R21 Rear: 315/40 R21 setup is working great on my X5. I am not sure if it would be the same on G06 M50.

Here you go:

I asked three BMW Geniuses before purchasing the tires, and they all confirmed it would work, but have to adjust the tire size on the iDrive accordingly.
