How Many Wheels should a Splitty have?

Post by pete65 » Fri Jul 15, 2011 6:48 am

Yes, we all know the answer (well my kids do!) but our splitty came without a spare wheel :(

Currently got 185/55R 15 tyres on standard hubs / chrome rims.

Can anybody advise what options are available re a spare - I've seen on this forum the odd Porsche spare wheel being bought and sold - is this a space saving option for behind the bench seat?

Any help, much appreciated!

Cheers.

My spare wheel is a sub box, so if I get a flat I call the AA. Easy.

Passes MOT every year without a spare.

Yeah, you don't need a spare wheel to pass an MOT. But if you do have one, it has to be road legal.

FBIVW will be able to sort one out. They also come up on eBay quite often.
