    Our 2009 Transit based Hobby van doesn't have a spare which makes me uncomfortable so I'm looking for a spare 16" wheel and tyre combo. Can anyone recommend a good on-line supplier?

    Which probably won't have a campervan tyre. I don't mind paying for a new wheel/tyre.

    Surely the win/win situation is to buy a used wheel to which you add a new tyre?

    Well yes I could of course but I don't think a new steel wheel is actually that expensive.

    I got a pair of new 16 inch wheels for our IVECO chassis, about £80 each if I remember right, scrap yard ones are like rocking horse poo for our chassis and then £50 to sandblast and powder coat so at the price new was OK.

    I will try to find the supplier and add to this post.

    EDIT. This is who I used and found them very good, http://www.aspectwheels.co.uk/

    Just get your local tyre depot to put the tyre on for you.

    I didn't have a spare wheel on my new Carthago Malibu, just a can of goo, so I have just bought a new wheel and a tyre to match from this seller on eBay ( promotorukgroup ).

    Their contact details are:-
    PROMOTOR DIRECT LTD

    WHEELS & TYRES SUPPLIED AND FITTED
    Unit 2 Eagar Street
    Manchester
    M40 1EP

    TEL: 01616811609
    MOB: 07500977544
    EMAIL: info@promotoruk.com
    WEB: www.thewheelshop.co.uk
    FAX: 01616811609

    They promptly answered my email query, and after ordering on the phone, the wheel and tyre were with me in a couple of days

    Cheers

    Trevor
