2022 UK Outback Touring .... Spare wheel?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

New to Subaru and new Outback due Apr 2022, looked but can't find the answer to the spare wheel question for a UK car.

Does a full size spare wheel fit in the space under the floor?

Is there a space saver option?

If not what is the alternative wheel tyre combination not keen on using the sealing fluid supplied?

Thanks in advance

Dave

Didnt see this post until you added to it..... The 2021 Outback has a pcd of 114.3 x5 with a centre bore of 56.1 which is pretty common on subaru models eg 2008 - 2013 wrx sti impreza. These cars also come with a space saver so that could fit in your boot space. 

I have not been near a 2022 outback so cannot confirm however when you take delivery a quick session with a tape measure get you on the right track

Hi Jay762 and many thanks for your reply. Yes my dealer has measured the demonstrator and confirmed that a wheel will fit, as you say it's a tape measure job when I get the car. Thanks for the pcd info and the commonality with other models gives some scope to find a s/hand full size spare.

I put a full size spare in my Levorg boot. AS they use the same floor pan I guess it should fit. Double check the sizes, but I found the wheel off a Mazda 6 sport was exactly the same size. I picked one up with  good tyre for £40 all in from eBay.

Just to let you know, my 2021 Levorg came complete with a jack and tools in the boot from new, so you just need the wheel. I know lots of makes don't even put a jack in when you have the glue and compressor kit.

I have the 2018 Outback with full sized spare wheel  The wheel comes with holder for jack and wheel brace and a key to screw wheel down. A new Touring is ordered for May and I intend to fit my existing spare in it

Hi and thanks for this info.

I now have a 17" steel rim fitted with a 225/65 R17 tyre and the screw down bolt & washer.

My dealer informs me that the wheel insert for the jack & tools is for an 18" alloy spare so will be too large for my wheel. Hopefully there will be space in and around the spare to fit the bits in.

Collecting the new car tomorrow will find out then!

Thanks again

Collected the car today, looks even better than the photograph.

17" spare wheel fits in the boot as people have said, much to my great relief.

Many thanks to all for your help, I am just going to enjoy the car for now.

Would you mind sharing the part number of 17" spare wheel, I am also looking for a spare tyre to go into the mk6 Outback.

Glad you got that sorted.

Just for general information for anyone else searching similar threads, I've a Gen5 OB, which as far as I can ascertain has the same (or very similar) boot space and under cover spare wheel space as the Gen6.  I fitted a full size (18") matching Subaru Gen5 OB alloy wheel in with ease, plus it's shod with a full size, fully inflated, tyre. 

Just another option and useful if you intend to do a 5-wheel/tyre rotation (with none directional tyres of course!).
