    Default Spare wheel ?

    I have just had a puncture repaired at the dealers which turned out to be a faulty valve. After using the spacesaver I would like to get a full size spare wheel but been told it wont fit in the well by the dealer...........is that correct? Its a Vectra c by the way

    Cheers

    as far as i know the hatch/saloon can fit a full size spare, but the vec estate and signum can only fit the smaller of the wheels (a 19" wheel wont fit for example). In practice, when I tried to put in a 16" alloy, the carpet was raised very slightly on the boot floor, but not enough to notice or cause problems.

    The spacesaver is used to cut down on vehicle weight
    A wheel up to 17" should fit

    My Vectra was supplied without a spacesaver
    Instead my car comes with a 10 year AA contract, specifically for tyre failure
    Instead the space is filled with an accessory kit
    It appears this was an optional extra, but I've never seen it in any of the UK brochures!
    The accessory kit is useless and could have been fitted into any of the boot pockets!

    When I had my car in for MoT the tester remarked that seeing a car with no spare wheel of any kind was rare
    However apparently the latest Audi, BMW, and Merc will also come with no spare wheel

    Thanks everyone for your help

    Does anyone know what the wheels are called on the exclusiv diesel? Its the steel ones with lookalike alloy wheel trims.

    I will then keep a look out on ebay
