    i got mine from the local scrap yard.
    it hasn't got the same size tyre on it but is a 16" wheel and i figure as if its ok for a car to have a space saver which is a completely different size then i can have a 195/75/16 spare for mine which is on 215/75/16.

    also the spare is on a steel and the rest are alloys but it will get me to quickfit or ats.

    I would check the mounting holes? Don't steel hubs have different bolts to allow ones? Probably wrong but I seem to recall reading something about this?

    I did recall correctly then :thumb: Glad you have it sorted.

    How will you change them at the road side are the studs easy to change?

    hi Gromett they are so easy to change its un true.
    you undo the bolts take the wheel off then put the spare on with the shorter bolts.

    some cars with alloy wheels have a special steel spare with extended stud holes to accommodate the alloy bolts/nuts.

    funnily enough there is a small white bag in the jack box that contains a set of brand new steel wheel short bolts.

    so the manufacturer sought fit to supply a jack, wheel brace, and bolts but no wheel:Doh::Doh:
