Space saver spare for my XV


Recommended Posts

I been looking as well and used this web site as a guide 'https://www.tyremen.co.uk/space-saver-wheel-and-tyre-kit' and then looked on eBay and a lot of the tryes are from 2004 for about £40 (rubber to old) and decent ones are about £100.

Looking to go to Scotland in February and worried that I will get a nail through the side wall and having to wait for hours for (Subaru) RAC to turn up!

Lad at work got a wood punch nail through his tyre & alloy - took RAC just over 2 hours to come out and drove him to a garage with the RAC spare tyre on.  Would rather spend max 30 minutes putting space saver wheel on and then driving to local garage myself.

Also just bought Tyre Puncture Repair Kit (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07MX6XKFW/) to use rather the Gel stuff and they are not guaranteed. https://youtu.be/H5DWhIF1c0M/

Took the foam holding my gel fix it kit and jack etc out of my 2018-19 XV a few hours ago, I have for a space saver tyre hole and some plastic side bits to hold a the jack handle (like I seen in  the Canadian Crosstrek. I searched on eBay in the USA/Canada with no luck but going to keep looking. 🙂

I posted this in response to a posting on "XV Spare Wheel"
It would be nice if one could have an article in a thread linked, as it were to another thread / article.

Ihave a 'real' spare tyre (in my XV 2.0I S ES CVT) although its still a "temporary" wheel, it is a full road wheel and proper tyre.

It's a Bridgestone185/65 R 17  90M

Or am I missing the point here ?
