Hi. I posted this in one of the uk groups but got no response, so I'm
I have a buggy (under repair at the moment) with chunky wheels and tyres
and ball joint beetle suspension. But it makes me nervous not carrying
a spare. I do have a spare, but it's too big to carry (unless I strap
it on the roof or something).
However, it occurred to me that maybe I could carry a 'space saver' -
much as I hate them, they have to be better than carrying a burst wheel
and tyre to the nearest tyre repair place.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any knowlege of a wheel from
another car that would fit - I have heard that early Skodas have the
same 4-stud 130mm pcd. I was thinking of a 13" or 14" - if they would
clear the brake calipers. Does anyone know of a small wheel that would
fit? If I'm going to phone around breakers' yards I really need to know
a make and model.
