    I have a 2015 Ducato chassis (not Alko) on my Burstner and no spare wheel. I'd like to fit a spare wheel carrier and note a lot of holes under the chassis where one was likely fitted. But these have no captive nuts. I'm assuming the latest Fiat spare wheel carrier will fit but what do I need as "nuts" for the fixing bolts to screw into? Has anyone actully done this. I see several posts from people asking the same question but no results.

    If you contact @Techno100 he may be able to assist in sourcing you a genuine fiat carrier at a great price

    He has a thread on the forum showing how to fit etc

    I assume that all modern ones are the improved type.

    I emailed the seller of the one I linked to. He said it will suit both 15 and 16 inch wheels. Is that possible?

    I learned that X290 have the same PCD for 15 &16 so yes and I believe it is 118 but have not yet evidenced that.

    The price is a steal

    Looks nice Andy. I believe a friend of mine (camoyboy over on the dark side) made something similar for his Alko.

    Carrier ordered up. Only one left now! Just got to get a rim (got a tyre from lenny on here)
