    215/35/19 into spare wheel well

    Just in case anyone wanted to know..................

    A 7 1/2 x 19 alloy with a 215/35/19 tyre fits (Just) into a MK4 Astra spare wheel well. It does sit slightly proud but no more than with a 17" Astra turbo wheel.

    Nope just sat it in.

    It does get tight though and needs a good tug to get it out.
