    spare wheel and boot install question.

    in the process of building my boot install, although this -2.5 degrees weather is seriously off putting!!!!

    Just wondering what people have done with their spare wheels??? my clio was easy as it was under the car, not in the boot.

    was thinking to take it out to save weight and keep a can of expanding foam stuff to get to the garage if such an instance occurs!

    dont want run flats either, rides firm enough on 35 pros and coilovers!

    I initially ditched my spare wheel matey for a can of tyre weld, but (dony ask me how) i managed to get 2 blow-outs in the space of a week

    My spare now lives on the back seat

    Gonna have to get round to re-building the boot some time.

    How effective is tyre weld? and do you need to carry a pump aswell?

    My build isnt secured to the floor, heavy enough so i wont slide around so when i want into my spare i fold the front seats forward and then lean the install on its back on the seats, allowing access to the spare nice n easy
    Old Skool doesn't do signatures, but if he did theyd probably be the best in the world.

    if you use tyre weld, doesnt that mean you cannot use the tyre again? Sure i read that somewhere
