Space Saver on 147

Just had to use my space saver spare for the first time today. I knew they were thin but surely they should be the same overall diameter as the wheel you're changing. My 17" Alfa alloys are about 2" bigger overall. Would have thought you'd drive round in circles in one wheel is bigger than the other on the front end

God knows why they put those stupid things in cars, cant they build a vehicle with enough room for a normal spare wheel

Better than a can of 'milk and air' (Finelec?) though. That's all you get with some motors currently. Have to admit, seeing the shirt button wheel on the guy next doors Porker at one time gave me a chuckle or two.

Re: Space Saver on 147

one option is to put one of the rear wheels on the front & put the space-saver on the back until you get the puncture fixed,

also if your boot has got a pile of stuff in it, where are you supposed to fit the punctured wheel?

I'd still rather have a space-saver than a tin of repair mousse,
