    spare wheel

    i didn't realise when doing the 308 disc mod that my spare wheel wouldnt fit afterwards, DOH!

    How much would i be looking at for a coupe turbo/gsi spare, and where from?

    The convertible turbos have a 16" spare steel wheel, these obviously fit! (well I hope it does!), they are 205 60 16" steel rims. The inner diameter will be larger than a 16" alloy!

    Sometimes there are 17" GSI alloys on e-bay

    Why not just stick the spare on the back, and put a back wheel on the front?
