Congrats welcome to the club.
The bolt pattern on the Diesel is actually a lot more common than the one on the gas Cruze. I think it may have something to do with the increased torque of the Diesel. All I can tell you is, unless you absolutely have to, do not use the flat repair kit in the trunk. It has a filler in it that will really mess up the inside of your tire and valve if you use it to inflate the tire. The filler acts as a plug once it coats the inside of the tire and (hopefully) plugs up the hole.Funny thing is my dad has 2 cruze gassers and i thought i could use one of his spares to get me by. but thanks to this forum i found out it wouldn't fit. why would gm put a different bolt pattern on the diesel? im looking forward to finding lots of helpful info on here.
Ahh, too close to the sidewall for a patch then was it? Too bad. Hope the rest of your journeys with your new Cruze are trouble free! Enjoy!yes, i didnt even try it. the tire deflated so fast it wound not have worked anyway. hey at least i got 481 mi out of the tire lol. a new one should be around 120 bucks. will find out tomorrow
