I have searched the archives but have only found vague suggestions.

Has anyone replaced their original 280z spare with a more modern equivalent that will fit in a 1978 280z spare space? Looking for ideas that I can potentially order or find on ebay. I don't have a junk lot near me, unfortunately. Thanks!

Have you thought about going to Coker tire for one in the original size? However, you need one that has the same diameter as the other tires on your car, unless you want to be forced to run it only on the front.

Great info. Thanks for that. Too bad the pictures are no longer active.

Older references mention using older Hyundai 14" spares or Mazda spares from the 80's as alternatives that fit the spare well of the 1978 Z. Some of those posts are nearly 20 years old. Just curious if anyone has attempted any of these matches in the last few years. Sound like some creativity may be required.
