    That is the tyre size you have posted
    Is it a wheel or a tyre or both you need. have you anywhere to put a spare?

    Thanks, good points you have raised. It's the wheel i need rather than the tyre. The size I got from the vehicle brocher ?

    I have a garage under the bed so space should not be an issue and weight should not be an issue as there is only me and the missis.

    Thanks,
    Philip

    Cant help sorry

    But Ive just got a 2009 Autotrail Cheyenne 696 SE G
    Seems to be a lovely thing............but the lack of a spare wheel and tyre
    is verging on the criminal

    WHY? are they just trying to save money do they really think its a good idea ?
    Same on my VW touran

    I carry a spare wheel in the boot ......so Im after a spare wheel/ tyre for the
    Cheyenne too :)

    I hope public demand makes this daft practice obsolete.

    Just buy the tyre! IF, you get a Puncture, and it's a big IF ! You won't have to wait while they source a Tyre, Seemples!!!

    your friendly neighbourhood scrap yard

    try your local scrapyard especially the ones that break cars.
    the one i work at recently got 6 steel 16 inch ducato wheels just weighed in as scrap from a garage that fitted alloys to a van.
    ok so there are no tyres on them but we do have wheels.
    we also have a citroen relay (same thing really) with 15 inch wheels on it.
    they sell for between £25 to £30.00 a rim without tyres.

    the yard i work at is on the yorkshire / lancashire border between skipton and burnley.
