    After the recent discussions on here concerning spare wheels I have decided to purchase one hopefully secondhand.
    Does anyone know of any secondhand dealers that break motorhomes or even specialise in spare wheels?
    Looking for a 16 inch alloy wheel for a 2007 Fiat ducato.
    Thankyou
    Peter

    Alloy will be a problem but you don't need it for a spare. Steel and you're into all the normal van wheels.

    Good grief, if the driver walked away he was very lucky.

    It would appear that the standard wheel for the Ducato is 15", mine is 16" so you need to take care...

    I was told that the base vehicle come with 16" dont know how true that is...


    I searched high and low and I think I may have found one, picking it up on the weekend,

    Price £25..


    fingers crossed..

    why would you require an alloy wheel when a simple steel rimed wheel would be cheaper and easier to acquire
    all you need it the stud spacings and the wheel diameter for the trye size and any scrap yard could find you one

    Thankyou very much. I just phoned him and they are 16 inch £100 for the wheel and tyre. Waiting for him to email me what the tyre is like, make, size etc.
