    IIRC it's 16", as a 15" as this won't go over a 308mm front disc

    Dave, I'd hate to see you get a flat tyre on the side of the road and have to start pulling your install out .....There isnt anywhere else to locate the spare wheel is there?

    I have all mine fastened in with velcro in one unit so I can get into it......

    It is a 16 mate, with a higher profile tyre to compensate for the 17" alloys.

    Check your rac cover mate as you will be charged if you havnt got a servicable spare, that applys to the AA, as I had to walk home and carry my spare wheel back to my car a few months back when the tyre came of the rim, and I was only allowed to do that because the Mrs works for them and new the patrol
