Re: Will 16" alloy fit in place of spacesaver (156 Sportwagon)?
I have a full size 16" alloy & 205/55R16 tyre in the spare wheel well of my 156 saloon.
It does sit slightly high so the carpet doesn't sit completely flat, but that is a small price to pay for the time when you actually need to use the spare.
I picked up a puncture while working down in South Devon a few months ago, so just fitted my full size spare and drive home normally.
If I had still got the silly skinny spare I would have had to buy a new tyre while down there as the skinny wouldn't be suitable for the long drive home.
