View Full Version : Seat Arosa spare wheel issue

10-02-2011, 01:36 PM
I have a Seat Arosa 1.0 ( 2002 ).
I had a puncture - changed the wheel putting the existing spacesaver on.
Went to Costco - got new tyre fitted to the normal wheel and fitted to car.
They said they believe the spacesaver tyre ( 105/70 - 14 ) is knackered and that it's not something they can source.
They suggested either getting a new spacesaver tyre OR a new wheel rim the same size as the other four and getting the appropriate tyre for that. 155/70 - 13.
They think that may be as cheap or cheaper than a new spacesaver tyre.
My question is - will a new wheel rim with that tyre size fit in the spare wheel space in my boot ?
Anyone know that please?
Best wishes

take one of your wheels off and try it.
You could always carry one of those puncture repair cans...
