    Default Anyone have a full size spare wheel...

    In the hole where the space saver goes? I've only got 17's, but I'll be dammed if I can get the thing in the space. I can't get it under the boot floor. LOL

    Not in the Signum I'm afraid Nick. Signum, and estate, have too shallow a wheel well to take a full width wheel.

    Have you taken out the plastic spacer bit Glynn? Seems to be what you have to sometimes do to get it to fit.

    You should be able to, a few guys have got 19s as a spare I'm sure. As above just needs the plastic spacer bit removed.

    Oh, I just got new tyres and kept the best one to keep as a spare in the boot. Oh well, just have to do with the space saver I guess.
