Turbo Spare wheel

today i saw a blueprint turbo with the space saver spare wheel on. man did it look shocking. it came over a speed hump and scraped the front valance because it it is a bit lower at that corner of the car!!! i really think people should go for the spare wheel option...the space saver spare is only 16", you can only do 80k/h for 80Ks aswell....and it makes your ford look crap. what are your thoughts?

As I found out recently, Ford have cancelled the spare alloy option except as a mandatory option when premium brakes are ordered. Meaning; No premium brakes = No alloy spare. Been there, done that!

Ford may have, but I would bet that your dealer would be able to sort you out.

Re: Turbo Spare wheel

What's the point anyway. It comes with a proper 16" steel wheel instead of a space saver at least.

It's only a temporary fit until you can get a new tyre for the alloy. A couple of days max to get one sorted out...

Re: Turbo Spare wheel

Thatís a fair comment, but surely if you want a matching spare you should be able to get one.
