Hi All
I also tow a caravan and wanted a full size wheel as a spare, I bought a 17 inch steel wheel from the site below and then fitted it with a correct size tyre to make up the right diameter. They offer 16 inch or 17 inch wheels I have a KX4 so I bought the 17 inch to make sure it would be big enough to fit over the brake calipers. It fits in the spare wheel cut out in the boot and I am pleased as it only cost me all in £130.
This is the site I used

I've 'discussed' this with the salesman at my local dealer.

They've agreed to supply a full size spare, along with the towbar & electrics on a KX5 for what I think is a reasonable price.

I'll mull it over for a couple of days, but I'm pretty sure I'll go for it - provided there are no hidden surprises.

Wish I'd read this before getting mine as I've just got the gunk.

I got a spare for my Venga, a full size alloy complete with hardly used tyre from a write off Venga, at a local scrapyard for £70 cash.

I recommend anyone needing a full size spare to ring the local scrappy to see if they have one.

They take the wheel off for you and online scrapyards even take PayPal!
