Sportage - Spare Wheel/Donut

edited June 2016 in Kia
My 2017 Sportage LX FWD did not come with a spare wheel (donut) in the trunk, just a space for one. I was given a Tire Mobility pack. I was told by my dealer that this was standard option for LX FWD. I can't work out from the Kia main Web site if this is the case or not. Anyone else run into this ?

My followup question is ; are donut tires specifically made for each model - how hard is it going to be for me to get a spare, other than buying one off a dealer? I have googled - and seemingly amazon sells them, However, I wondered if these spares are generic, meaning I could pick up something from my local tire store that would do the job ? Dumb question ?

    We show the Tire repair kit as being standard for the LX. (link)

    I'd probably go with a generic unless there's something extra that's worthwhile with the dealer option. You should be able to check that out by looking at an SX or other trim level. But sure, a local shop or Amazon donut should work, so long as you spec it out for your model.
