Default How to fit 4 stock wheels plus a spare in your Z!

I'm sure many of us have been in a situation where we wanted to pick up an extra set of wheels, but we thought we couldn't fit them in the Z and had to beg friends for a ride. This has happened to me before.

The first recommendation I have is remove your trunk material as well as your spare tire. I didn't do this and still managed to make it work, but if you have the option to do this I highly recommend it.

The first thing you're going to do is put 2 wheels side by side in the front seat. Blankets are important to protect your leather/cloth. Extra points if you use a Dora the Explorer one.

Make sure to bring a bungee cord to keep the wheels in place. I wrapped it through the wheels and connected it to the metal parts on the head rest. I also put the seat belt through the wheels.

The next thing you're going to do is fit 2 in the trunk. One will go behind the strut bar, and the other will go where the spare wheel is kept.

If you left the spare in the car like I did, you will then put the spare on top of the wheel that is in the spares location

Finally, if you left all the trunk material in the car like me, you will fold the floor mats up and put them in the corner of the trunk. I put them behind the passenger seat. This was a bad idea. Put them behind the drivers seat. and the hard piece will cover the spare.

Voila, 4 extra wheels in the Z
