I bought a full-sized alloy spare wheel with tyre (which fits in the spare wheel well) for £160 from a local wheel/tyre shop, in Fareham where I live. If you want their details let me know. Half the price of the official wheel and tyre...
If you send an email to me at [email protected] I'll send you details and some pics. The supplier I used is in Fareham where I live. There's a chance that they may know of a supplier in your area who may be able to provide you with one or else send one by freight (don't know the cost of this might be). The spare wheel is alloy, 5 stud and 5 spoke but doesn't quite match the Kia original, but it's only a spare, isn't it ?
Hi guys,cani buy a skinny one off you if you s have managed to replace? My new venga comes with a can of gunk andan air compressor,that does nt appeal to me,i dont even get a wheel brace in this one!!James.
Just a thought, Have you considered buying a steel wheel for the spare with new tyre.
When your tyres wear down for replacement put one of the worn tyres on the steel wheel and the new tyre on the alloy. Much cheaper. And the steel wheel will spend virtually all of its life hidden in the boot anyway so why bother with alloy.
I agree with Jamesskye regarding lack of spare wheel I believe that the gunk or whatever, is virtually
useless unless it is a pin prick size puncture
I had this setup with a Audi A2 the first puncture it was all over the
road and had to be lifted and towed to a garage.
When are manufactures
going to forget this stupid arrangement and fit spares
I do not want a compressor as like many motorist I carry one
manufactures don't fit spare wheel any as it adds to the weight which can increase the CO2 which could but the car into the next tax bracket? Found this out when I got my Skoda Superp, but at least had the full size spare as an option at £100
