    Yep, as the overall diameter of the wheel/tyre will be close to your original wheels

    Good idea to replace it with a proper wheel. I have a 17" spare for my car, although the wheels are 19". Anything's better than the standard doughnut.

    At least yours has a spare, there isn't one in mine!
    VX did a small batch without spare wheels, instead I have a storage box and screwdriver; how useful

    Just wanted to see if you replaced the space saver in the boot for the full size. Don't it raise the boot carpet up.
    I've just managed to pick up a spare GSi alloy and tyre off of ebay for a bargain £7.50
