You can get a complete spare wheel kit from your Kia dealer. Rim fitted with tyre,wheel brace and jack all complete with new polystyrene insert to hold jack ect in place. We have bought them for all 4 ofourPicanto s
thanks for the advice, but not in a position to buy a spare wheel kit.Really just require a second hand wheel, with or without tyre.
Was wondering if any other make of wheel will fit Picanto
Have kept my eye on E-Bay but most listings are for 14" Wheels.Picanto 13" wheels seem very rare. I only require one as a spare.
My Picanto has 13" wheels and no spare. I have had a puncture in which the side wall was damaged.
Fortunatly I was only 100 yards from a tyre place, so replacement was no problem.
But am concerned if it happens again I will not be so lucky.
So require a spare 13" rim,with or without a tyre to cary for emergency. But they do not seem to be available
Hi-Thank you for your interest, the Picanto is a 2005 1.1LX 5 door. The manual says the wheel is 4.5J x 13" Tyre size is 155/70 R13. Which is the same as the wheels fitted.It seems impossible to obtain a second hand wheel to use as a spare.
Hence my enquiry if any other wheel would fit. Just to carry as a spare.
Best Wishes DAVYO
I have spoken to my son today he has worked at Hyundai and Kia dealerships.The 13 inch was used for markets such as India.So the hub should be the same size as the 14 inch. He said if you go on www.etyres.co.uk tyre-size-calculator, and put in details of 155 70 13 and 165 60 14 you will see there is only 7mm difference between the two.You can get this much wear between tyres,therefore you would be OK topurchasea used 14 inch to use as spare to get you out of trouble.
Not ideal and if it was left on at time of mot it is a failure. Any picanto "s" which later became a picanto "1" had 13 inch wheels. Seems very strange that your lx has them as they were always 14 inch. I think someone has swapped them as that was not original..... A 13"wheel will only be about 35 pounds from main dealer.
He is only looking for a wheel to get him home .We have 4 lx and all 14 inch.All the years my son worked a Kia dealership he never see a Picanto with 13 inch.He is no longer there as he is now service manager at a Ford dealership,but as he has said if only a cheapsecond-handwheel is wanted it will be easier to find a 14 inch.
