The 2008 C70 I bought does not have a spare tire, jack or lug wrench... where’s the best place to find these?

Thanks!

I believe those were a dealer installed accessory on the C70. From the factory our cars came with an emergency inflation kit which should be located in the compartment behind the middle cushion of the rear seat back. As to the best place to get the Spare tire kit, I am unsure. The dealer may still be able to order it for you. Or you could try salvage yards to see if a wrecked one had the kit in it.

Yep, this is the cheapest way to go, and you aren’t limited to C70s. Any P1 Volvo (C30, C70, S40, or V50) spare tire, jack and lug wrench will work. You just won’t find them all nicely packaged in the bag that the C70 has.

Of course a salvage yard wil be some pretty old rubber. Not that I haven't successfully used a 30 year old spare before, but it might not be a bad idea to price out the new spare and just get the other stuff from the junk yard... I'm not sure if the spare with wheel would really cost that much more than just replacing the tire.

Got a spare tire r17 from a salvage yard for 15 euros (~18$).
