  • VXR Spare Wheel, what do you use?

    Was just curious as to what everyone does for a spare wheel on their VXR?

    When I bought mine it has no spare, just a can of foam
    And a compressor (I think?!) but I am
    Keen to get an actual wheel and tyre as spare.

    Not paying OTT for a 19" VXR wheel / tyre so has anyone any suggestions on a cheaper option that fits no probs?!

    Cheers folks !

    Think a 17" spacesaver fits on the rear....so if you have a puncture on front you put a back one on the front and the spacesaver on the rear

      I got a 16" veccy wheel at much cheapness, so use that.

      A standard (ie, non space saver) will fit over the standard front brakes so I reckon that's the way forward.
      Sold - Arden Blue Astra VXR on 19's
      Ordered - Pure White Golf GTI on 18's (couldn't stomach paying for 19" tyres any more!)

          I picked up a brand new space saver and jack kit from billing last year

          £25.00,
          as above if front tyre goes down put one off rear to fit over the brakes then space saver on rear, bit fiddly if its raining but it saves putting the foam in and ruining the tyre(cant plug tyres after foam has been used)

          Have a look on ebay you might drop lucky

            Do one of the tyre places not clean all the gunk out of the tyre for you mate? Sure its like McConnechys or something.

                Read on here somewhere that the foam goes into the tyre material so the glue on the repair wont adhere properly, sure someone will be along shortly with the technical version though
