Not Happy Skinny Spares

pointless sch1te.

80kph limit and nowhere to put
the fullsize as the wheel well is
too small.


Just ing put a proper wheel well
and full sized wheel.


FFS.

Spunky useless tyre ruining tyre foam stuff. That's the disgraceful ****. A skinny spare is a proper luxury!

Got more or less forced into a rockface by an oncoming truck this morning.
nicked the sidewall on the nearside rear
.
Luckily I ordered a full set for next Wednesday, but the Ewok is now in
wounded dog mode.


PoP to change the spare with the LR self-torqueing nuts you cannot over tighten.

If I put the spacesaver on the back of mine, the abs throws a wobbly. If I put it on the front, it just spins unless the road is absolutely bone dry and you keep it off boost completely.

I thought this thread was going to be about mistresses.

I don't have a full size spare but I don't have a proper space-saver either. The standard tyres are 17'' and my spare is the steel 16'' Skoda use with winter tyres Why not just give me a proper full size spare ?!!

I've got an 18" skinny spare. Ridiculous.
