I have been concerned about this too.

So have just bought this one .......

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201031414111? ... 1423.l2649

Yes it's the wrong colour and has a small piece of tyre and rim damage. But it's a bargain and perfectly useable (front and rear) as a get me home (or to the nearest tyre fitters) spare :D :D

No it's not mine. Mine is sitting snugly in the spare wheel well of my car.

However I think I did see the add your talking about but didn't notice the pictures were the same. Thought they were similar but not the same. :eusa-think:

Is this the one ...

If so it's not the same :thumbup:

Driving round Europe in the summer and like the guys and gals here didn't fancy doing 2500 miles ish without a spare wheel of some sort. So onto EBay and got a 17" alloy from a 407 with a 215/55/17 tyre. This is only about 2.5mm less in overall diameter than the 19" tyres and unlike a spacesaver, allows you to get on your way at more than 50 mph. Also bought an insert for the spare with jack etc included. Ok, so it will only fit the rear but so what? The cost? Well I've saved nearly £500 by going down this route instead of a 19 incher. It has the same offset (45) and same bolt pitch (108) as standard. Sorted!!

Enjoy the smiles and miles.
Keep safe and keep detailing.

Here you go! I think this is the best and cheapest solution to the spare wheel dilemma. 17" alloy off a 407 + 215/55/17 tyre. Scissor jack and foam insert from same model. The jack fits perfectly. The wheel bolt holes are the same pitch as the 19"s and the bore is 65.1mm which is the same as well.

Very useful piece of information for our newer members that haven't as yet got around to formulating their solution to this problem. Well done :clap:

I've just bought an RCZ and pick it up on Thursday. I mentioned to the salesman that I'm going to get a Peugeot 407 spare wheel for it and he said that he heard of a case where a woman put a spare wheel in her car that was supplied without one and it invalidated her insurance when she had an accident because it counts as a vehicle modification. I know this sounds slightly ridiculous - especially as I think the RCZ has a wheel well so is presumably designed to carry a spare if required.

Does anyone know, please, if this is the view taken by insurance companies? I guess I could ask my specific insurance company but I don't want to draw their attention to the matter. I'm an old fashioned bloke who wouldn't drive around without a spare so I will do it anyway and just chuck it over the hedge if I smash into something.

You could always call as if your getting a quote and just ask if the spare wheel would affect the insurance ;)

That way it isnt tied to your policy :)

That a scary suggestion, as a lot of us have spare wheels now. Mine was supplied by Peugeot UK. So where does this leave us? Sounds a little bit like gossip and misinformation to me.

Perhaps if you carried a set of golf clubs in your boot that would be a modification, so I suggest you put your spare wheel in large suitcase for which the boot is designed & therefore be classed as luggage & no longer a modification :-)

Hi all My solution is shown in post (Asphalt photos) full size alloy, part worn tyre about 3.5 to 4 mm tread, full pressure, foam under to protect alloy face, old shower curtain wrap to stop tyre rubber marking wheel well, foam to protect inner face of wheel, jack etc. then fit in. It sits about quarter of an inch proud so have fitted some padding round

Since my last post I have revisited the one ref jacking points. I think should I ever have the misfortune to get a puncture I will call the R.A.C to change the wheel. Then I have someone else to blame if the is any damage.

Accelera tyre has full tread, never had to use so as new.

Will fit in the wheel recess in the boot.

HI again My brain just engaged again. A 19 inch with a new tyre will properly not fit in the well. Mine is a snug fit with the part worn on.
