    Default Can i get space saver for my corsa VXR?

    What can I use as a spare wheel for my car? I have a 2010 corsa vxr vxracing edition (picked it up a few days ago) but ive noticed it only has a stupid compressor.

    If I get a puncture im finished so I was wondering if you can buy a space saver or a wheel that will fit and be the same size from another car without spending hundreds?

    Any ideas would be appreciated

    Where abouts in the country are you? I have one i'd sell but i'm in Cheshire and delivery wouldnt be cost effective. Otherwise like VXRemus says scarpyard prob your best bet!

    Hertfordshire (St. Albans) so maybe a bit too far. What size wheel/tyre will fit it?

    buy a vectra space saver off of ebay with jack and tools(£50ish) ,they fit nicely under the base board in the boot .That is unless you have put an Amp under there .

    Not sure of the size. Its in my garage so would have to check.
    Its 5 stud from a vectra. Rolling radius is slightly smaller AFAIK but fine as a "get you home" wheel.
    Wouldnt drive around all week on it. Ebay or scrappy your best bet at that distance mate...
