    image.jpeg image.jpeg Continuing my garage clear out I bought this for my previous van, which was a Chausson 717 on the new Transit Mk8 chassis. It is an excellent quality German spare, to which I had fitted an identical tyre to the originals (Continental Vanco 2, 235/65R, 16c 121/119R). Problem was, two weeks after I bought it I decided to get a Carthago on a Fiat base so it's absolutely as it came from the supplier. I want £150, which is a fair bit less than it cost.

    I will be a day visitor at the August Malvern show on the Friday, otherwise collection from Tewkesbury please. It's really heavy!

    Price now reduced to £130.

    I thought this would be snapped up by one of the new Transit owners, but it's still here! Any offers.....

    It's no use to me mate, so it's none of my business, but you don't mention age in your post, which worries quite a few on here(y)

    I bought it in May this year, so it really is brand new. I had a 2015 Chausson on the latest mk8 Transit chassis.

    I paid over £200 for the wheel and tyre when I bought it a few months ago, although I could have gone for a Chinese tyre which would have been a bit cheaper.

    Price now reduced to £130, but I can't change the wording on the header sorry.

    No one with a Chausson or Rollerteam need a spare wheel?

    You're not gonna like this Bob but it's a bit expensive I'm afraid! You can get them elsewhere cheaper than that usually.

    Hi Mel.

    It did cost over £200 originally because I specified the same tyre as I had fitted on my Chausson (the ones on eBay come with chinese tyres) and it's a decent quality German wheel but I am very happy to listen to any offers! I was, in hindsight a bit daft to put the original price in the heading to the advert as I can't change this now even though the asking price was reduced a while back. It really is brand new, only having been in the van for one trip. I don't have the Chausson/Ford any more.

    Why not ask @Jim if he can remove the price form the thread title for you?

    I know what you mean about the cost and if you buy them brand new from a dealer etc they do cost a lot but once classed as 'used', even if never actually used if you see what I mean, they do suffer depreciation quite a bit. I've never ever bought them from a dealer in the past, always got them off Ebay etc as 'never used'.
