    Default Full size spare

    Hi there, just had to use that hateful piece of rubbish known as the space saver spare... does anyone know if a full size 16" rim with a 225 55 on it will fit if i remove the tools, spacer etc? It's not stopped raining for long enough to get good measurements.

    Asked two Vauxhall main dealers service departments and neither could say... suggested i take a wheel off and try it.....doh!!!

    Is it me or is this not really good service?????

    Thanks

    Andy

    I may be wrong but I think a full size spare will fit in the hatch but not in the estate or a Signum (I think Duncan can confirm that?).

    I put a 16" steelie in mine but tbh you will probably never use it so there's no point in carrying the extra weight.....

    Nope. won't fit in a Signum. It's about 15-20mm too fat and the boot floor won't sit down flat.

    I keep my full size spare at home cos' all my punctures seem to be local. I can then take of the 'littlun' and fit the 'biggun' and get the repair done at my leisure.
