enough to know i shouldnt touch things i know nothing about ....
Hi, I recently saw a post where someone asked the weight of a spare wheel -I think they were thinking of adding one but were concerned about the added weight.

I weighed one I have bought today (I intend fitting it either underneath or on the back 'towbar' style design - which I haven't got yet LOL)

the weight of the 15 inch wheel and tyre I have is 25kg - I hope that helps someone

I didn't weigh the jack etc but I would put it at no more than 8kg

I've got one as well. Got it as a matching alloy 215/70 on a 15" rim. It weighs about the same as yours at 25.7kg (steel wheel is heavier by 3-5 kg according to the dealer)
We keep it in the garage. All I need to do now is remember where I put the locking nuts.

Hi, realise this is an old post.

just moved my spare to the vehicle underside, which is where Fiat intended it to be, and additionally the tool kit is now back under the divers seat. So all toll, that’s 32kgs off the garage rear wall, which reduces any uneven loading a little, and also frees up the whole garage.

not sure why Burstner bothered fitting these in the garage to start with?

If I had seen this earlier I might have been able to answer as I had 5 new tyres fitted this morning including the spare in the garage, but mine are 16" wheels.

That spare is mounted on the forward wall of the garage so its moment to the rear axle is minimal. Maybe N&B are a bit smarter than Burstner ;) :giggle:

Can’t fathom it myself as Fiat have drilled and set all the threads in the chassis to accept the mounting assembly, yet MH builders put them in the garage, guess front wall is better for weight, but still takes up space.

ps mine is a 16 inch steel wheel.

Fiat or Alko?
A lot (most?) MH have Alko chassis, apart from PVCs.

Standard Fiat chassis on my Rimor.
Pretty sure that the place for a spare wheel is occupied by the grey water tank, so mine lives in the garage

Your garage will also now qualify for cheaper toll fees in france.
Win win 👍

It all weighs nothing when you go over a speed bump.

Is that in front or behind the rear axle?
