Did you have to deflate it? Didn't it catch on the plastic lip?

Hi Guys,

I just had the wonderful experience of having to wait two hours for a relay back home when I burst my tyre...and whilst sitting there I vowed not to make the same mistake twice.

I have a 2012 RCZ, with 19 inch alloys; I have been offered and 18 inch together with (not too badly worn) continental tyres.

Does anyone know if that would work as a "get me home" option??

Thanks so much in anticipation.

The rolling circumference would be the same.
It all depends on if the 18" wheel would fit over your front brake disc/callipers,
Or whether you would need to put the rear on the front so you can put the spare on the rear.

I've purchased a Peugeot 407 Space saver on Ebay, 17in, for £5, although my wheels are 19in. members say it will be ok, my son gave me a scissor jack, sorted ! :thumbup:
