Although the tires are different widths, the radius is mostly the same. The same donut would work for any corner. modernspare.com sells spare tire kits for Teslas and many other brands, hopefully, they will add the ID.4 to their mix.With both the front and rear tires being different sizes, it wouldn't make sense to carry a single spare
The Phaeton is about 600 pounds heavier (5200lbs) than the ID.4 and this is the jack that comes with it. I have jacked that car up many many times with it and it works fine for getting it in the air.....but not the most stable or confidence building device once the car is in the air! Any good jack will do it, just have to make sure to use the right lift points. When I get it the ID.4 will be the lightest vehicle I own!Considering how heavy the car is, how feasible is it to change your own tire? Do you need a more substantial jack? Obviously you would change it if you didn’t have cell reception to call roadside service.
When was the last time you had a flat tire?
Thanks for the idea, I just ordered a used Touareg jack on ebay for $40 shipped. Even if I don't end up carrying a spare and just use a plug kit, etc, at least I will be able to get a corner up in the air to remove and reinstall the wheel. 🔧The Phaeton is about 600 pounds heavier (5200lbs) than the ID.4 and this is the jack that comes with it.

I have not owned a vehicle with a spare tire since 2009. Several of those vehicles have come with run-flat tires, but I've very quickly swapped them for regular tires as I loathe run-flat tires. Instead, I've carried a small and affordable Slime flat tire kit in the trunk/hatch of each car. I drive around of 15,000 miles a year on my primary car, and generally another 5,000-7,000 miles a year (or more; did a 4,500 mile road trip in summer 2018) on my weekend toy. My husband does about 12,000 miles a year on his car. Despite about 34,000 miles a year between us, neither of us has had a flat tire in all that time. Lucky? Perhaps. We do both do our due diligence to avoid potholes and such, so maybe that helps. We also keep roadside assistance active, whether that's through the vehicle manufacturer or something like AAA. Anyway, my point is, having some sort of active roadside assistance and an affordable flat tire kit in the trunk (that you know how to use!) is probably better than carrying a spare. My $.02.
I got that too.My ID.4 FE came with a pump/sealant kit in its own black vinyl case. It was in the aft compartment along with the 120VAC cable [also in its own bag] and a foam cutout containing a few typical lug/jack tools. Did I get something(s) I wasn't supposed to get?
But I'll be relying on my long time, very rarely used, AAA membership anyway.
Nope.@Huey52 and @BlueDH - was the kit on your original Monroney?
