  • Spare Wheel

    Whilst cleaning the car out today I noticed that it has no spare wheel only a mini air pump, My question is am I missing a space saver ? or is this how they come? Mine is a 55 plate if this matters.
    Cheers!

    Should have a tub of tyres weld too fella, it fits onto the air compressor and pumps it into the tyre, but they don't come with a spare wheel

          Spacesaver only fit's on rear so means if you get a flat front you need to put the rear wheel on the front then the spacesaver on the rear. Mucking about yes but tyrefoam cant seal a side wall cut

                Will that fit over the front brakes or would u have to swap the back alloy to front and fit on the back ?

                    does anybody want the tyre leak system kit? we have them sent out to us when we order a bodykit! stands us at £61.12 but open to offers!

                    Kit consists of the foam canister and an electric pump which plugs into the 12v socket in your car.

                      also have a brand new space saver with tyre which could be sent out for £25.00. but i think we would recommend a full size spare (16"/17") being the VXR model!

                        Thought so

                        The Vectra Sri alloy 17 inch will fit though ?

                            Something is in the back of my mind that Police specials were fitted with the elite wheels to get the clearance on the front.



                            my VXR history: Arden Corsa, Astra Nurburgring, Corsa Arctic, Evoke VXR8, Black Corsa, Silver Vectra, a long weekend with an Insignia, a chilli burger and now a siggy tourer!

                              Not enough clearance with that one either , as Moeman said the 17" elite wheel is what the police use and europeans use them as winter wheels
