Many motorists are legally driving round on normal road tyres with less tread than that found on a spacesaver.davy said:Yeh M4 theres more tread on a condom than on some of them space savers
Typical example of internet scaremongering. If used correctly spacesaver wheelsare perfectly robust enough to be used many times over although obviously you will probably have to replace the tyre if you regularly find yourself getting punctures many miles from a garage.M4trundler said:I've heard the metal on these space savers is so thin the whole wheel can only be used for a short while beforeit fatigues and needs replacing. Don't know how true this is.
Just as you are if you are lucky enough to be able to repair a puncture with the Kia supplied sealant.M4trundler said:Then you are limited by law to 50 mph max, and about 50 miles.
That's very true and precisely why I tested the spacesaver on my car using the standard nuts supplied with my alloys. No problems.M4trundler said:Another thing...check the bolts/nuts for your normal road wheels will suit the space saver wheel...on some cars they do not, so you have to carry around spare nuts/bolts!
