    spare wheel size

    just a quick query, I've upgraded my 2.2 SRI to 308mm front discs, and I'm sure I've seen someone mention that the old 15 inch spare doesn't fit, is this the case?? also, will the old originial 16's go over these brakes, I haven't checked as I've been running 18's

    15s defo wont fit

    as far as i know theres only 2 types of OE 16s that fit over 308s . one being the twin five spoke SRi ones, the other Im not so sure.

    Might be worth considering getting a cheap 17 incher to run as a spare

    If you get a puncture on the front put the rear wheel on the front and the spare on the rear. Rover had the same problem that's what it said in the hand book to do.
