    Default Full size Spare wheel??

    Hi everyone.

    I was thinking about putting a full size spare wheel in the boot of my Estate instead of the space saver but after a rough measure up it doesn`t look like it would fit height wise, Was this an option from Vauxhall to have a full size spare or has anyone else done this ??

    Cheers guys

    James

    i tried putting the wheel in at lunchtime ( 215 55 16) it does fit but sticks up a fair bit,not sure whether i could live with that or not,i will have another try as i would prefer a full spare wheel.
    Cheers anyway guys

    No you can't fit a full size spare in the estate. The boot floor will be around 3" high. Shame really, even with the plastic bit removed.
