It’s about $1400 in parts and $600-$800 in laborHas anyone added a spare tire to a van not equipped with one? Just looking at the parts diagram, it seems like it's gonna be more the the $75 it was as an option.
I have a slime tire repair kit (also get some rubber cement), harbor freight air compressor, and gooloo jump starter in every car.Yikes. I guess I'll just buy a slime kit and hope for the best.
I am not aware how you can get a spare tire not equipped previously and the tire not standing out. I pre ordered my Sienna back in August and elected the spare tire with my order, it’s an absolute must over what you get otherwise a generic fix a flat. i finally picked up my van today and the spare was hidden well in the back on the drivers side.Has anyone added a spare tire to a van not equipped with one?

The link is confusing for pricing. Did you figure out what the total would be to buy the trim piece and all the bits needed?I just purchased a 2022 XSE AWD. I could not get get spare tire option with Moonstone interior unless I upgraded to XSE Plus Package for $1375. I could get a spare tire with Moonstone or roof rails with Moonstone, but not both. WTF? I got the roof rails and would like your thoughts on the trim pieces from Toyota. What do you guys think about changing out the trim?
Only one person so far on this forum. See #2 above. That too at dealer's expense.I've run into the same issue. Purchased AWD and got it home -- found out the day after purchase that there is no spare tire or cavity for one in the driver's side rear. Frustrating!! I'm interested in changing out the trim - has anyone done this yet?
Interesting! Not that I would want to pay that out of pocket... but I wouldn't mind trying to swap out the trim myself. Can't be that hard. Just need a parts list and a place to purchase the parts direct somehow. They mark everything super high at the parts department at the dealership.I was told when purchasing my Sienna that someone had bought a van and later came back asking to have the integrated spare storage added and paid the dealership $1700 to do so.
FWIW, a used tire shop around the corner from me got me a used tire and rim for $120. I am not going to complain about saving money, but the reason I went there is that it was easy to talk to them. I knew nothing about tires or rims. I pretty much pulled in, he took a quick look, and called me a couple of weeks after when he had found it. It is a spare that I hope I have to never use it. I don't care about asthetics as long as the tire looks decent and that it can go a few hundred miles. They even put it on for me to take a test drive, and than put the newer on back on.I was going to buy a full size spare to put it in the trunk for long road trips only but that will cost about $350 to $400 on tirerack.com. having a hard time finding cheap steel rims in that size.
i might just go with this kit Complete Spare Tire Kit 2021-22 Toyota Sienna, Compact | Modern Spare with shipping for about 500. unless someone here have another suggestion.
