Hi,

I tried searching for a clear answer in the forum, but couldn't. I would like to have a spare tire (not full size) in the trunk (I believe it doesn't fitt under the trunk?) instead of the repair kit. I didn't find any 2020 IONIQ EV Spare Tire Kit.

Is it safe to use this for a 2020 IONIQ EV?

If not, why?

For other 2020 IONIQ EV users here that decided to have a spare tire, what did you use?

Thanks!

I dont want to put it in the boot, just in the trunk and leave it there all the time.

It will fit on the load floor area but not below that we’re a normal spare would reside,

There are some questions: -

a. It's for a 2019 USA model, you have a 2020 Canadian spec car, are the normal wheel stud spacings etc the same?
b. It doesn't come with a tyre, can you buy one that gives the correct rolling radius?

If the answers to both these questions is 'Yes', then why not? As long as you've checked, and checked again that it'll fit!!

I just checked 1010 tire and the wheels specs are all the same between PHEV, HEV and EV:

2019 HEV:

2019 PHEV:
2019 Hyundai Ioniq bolt pattern

2020 EV:
2020 Hyundai Ioniq bolt pattern

However, the spare is 15 inch instead of 16 inch, so as you said, I can check with my local tire garage if they can propose something that would correct rolling radius. Maybe they would even have a spare to suggest. Will check taht first.

Thanks

If you want a full size spare wheel then check out a salvage yard, the smaller15 inch
Space saver wheel is only usable to 50 KPH and relatively short distances,

I'm also looking to get a space saver for my 2020 EV, of course it has to just sit in the boot. Not looking for a full size spare...yet!

The factory fitted tyres for the EV should be 205/60R16 for both EUDM and USDM, I'm in the UK and this is correct. The 2016-2019 EV is 205/55R16, and PHEV 195/65R15. I think the link in the first post post is the space saver kit for the PHEV and won't fit the 2020 EV, but if anyone knows for sure...

I'm still hoping to find a suitable SS for the 2020 EV, and think one with a 135/80R17 tyre would be closest in diameter/circumference, (only 0.7% different). The wheel of course has to match the bolt pattern 5x114.3, and centre bore 67.1mm and thread size M12x1.5, offset may also be important, though I think less so for a SS?

To check out wheel/tyre specs have a look at Wheel size guide and also wheel size calculator

Would be nice if someone has already got a suitable one?

15" Space Saver wheel will only fit the front axle of the EV but not the back one due to the electric parking brake mechanism outside diameter. This is true for the 28kWh model and I suspect for the 38kWh model as well.

I was determined to get a Space Saver as soon as I could and after researching found the Mazda CX-3 2015 onwards was exactly the same spec as the Ioniq 38kWh, so I went ahead and got one from 'thewheelshop.co.uk', £125 including a toolkit. It's a 16''.

Before I had a chance to fit it for a test I set off one morning and within a minute the low tyre pressure warning came on with the rear nearside at 22PSI, went back home and there was screw in the tyre. I'd done less than 250 miles and just 4 weeks old. Horror! I put the new SS on and it was fine, went down to the garage in our village and they said it could be repaired, they patch on the inside and its a legal repair. I still had to go out and did a 20 mile round trip with the SS on, everything was fine, kept the speed down, but handling, braking etc all as expected.

In the photo it looks smaller than it did in reality and didn't feel that much lower, I did measure the height difference on each side at the back and it was negligible.

I didn't know whether to feel lucky or unlucky, but was very happy I'd got the SS and had given it enough of a run to know it was OK if I had full blowout anytime.

Hope this might help anyone wondering what SS to get for the 38kWh.
