    At a guess I'd say a 16" Steelie. I have seen one with a 16" alloy spare (looks similar to that on the VX220 Turbo

    Vxt rims are different to the gsi ones.
    Similar design but totally different when you get up close, and theyre 17's.

    Gsi came with 16" steel as standard.

    the 15" isnt just any 15", as a normal 15" rim finds it hard to get over the front brakes. the coupe spare wheels rear side is slightly thinner.
